What You Need to Know About Winter Window Replacement

Replacing your old, inefficient windows with better, more energy-efficient units is a great way to add value to your home and improve its energy efficiency and curb appeal. However, most homeowners think that this project can only be done when the weather is good. This begs the question: can window replacement be done this winter? Apparently, it is possible. 

What to Expect During a Winter Window Replacement

As a leading window contractor in the local area, Madison Door has the experience and expertise to perform window installations even during cold weather conditions. With this kind of home improvement project, expect a reputable window installer to follow these best practices:

  • Removing One Window at a Time 
    To limit the amount of cold air entering your home, the pros see to it that they install one window before they proceed to the next.
  • Keeping Doors Closed 
    Another way to prevent cold air from affecting indoor temperatures is to keep entry doors closed while they do work.
  • Using Plastic Barriers 
    Window pros installing a large window must cover the opening with a plastic barrier.
  • Keeping Your Home Clean 
    Window pros use tarps to protect the indoors from debris. They also cover the soles of their shoes so they don’t leave any mud prints while walking in and out of the house.

Why Replace Windows in Winter

Winter window replacement has its unique benefits. For one, you can get in touch with the contractor and schedule your project quicker and easier during this time of the year. After all, winter is an off-season for home improvement. Also, window installers tend to offer discounts when there’s less demand for them, allowing you to take advantage of savings.
