With freezing temperatures and snow, it’s hardly surprising that many people don’t even consider replacing their windows during the winter. But as it turns out, winter installation is possible if you need to replace your windows. Here’s a closer look at why (and how) this can be done.
Winter Installation Practices
Window installers adapt their installation process for cold weather. For starters, they will use sealants, insulating foam, adhesives, and other materials that have been designed to perform well in cold temperatures. This also provides greater long-term durability with windows that are well-equipped to provide maximum performance in all types of weather.
To prevent heat loss, contractors will also work on one window at a time during winter installations. This helps keep the inside of the house warm and ensures that you won’t be facing a massive heating bill after the window installation is complete!
Better Flexibility and Pricing for Installation
Even though window installers have the capabilities to replace your windows during the winter, there’s no denying that demand for their services tends to decline significantly during this time of year. This can be an advantage for homeowners because it means that contractors will have more flexible installation dates that better fit your schedule. You may also be able to negotiate lower rates.
