Window Replacement: When You Can’t Wait for Warmer Weather

There are instances where you can’t avoid getting replacement windows during the cooler months. Don’t delay the replacement of damaged and inefficient windows because they can compromise your safety and comfort. Immediately addressing window-related problems can also prevent your energy bills from increasing. 

Window Replacement

To ensure the success of your project, you must take proper precautions and hire experienced professionals. Here are helpful tips to make your window replacement work when you cannot wait for warmer weather. 

Have Your Windows Replaced on a Sunny Day

As much as possible, schedule your project at mid-morning or on a sunny day. Doing so will allow the new windows and other materials to warm up and expand. Keep updated on the weather and see if there is a chance of rain. Some window sealants require at least 24 hours to set before water exposure. Window and door replacement contractors should wait for all surfaces to dry before starting with the job. 

Your Installer Should Apply Silicone-Based Caulk Around the New Windows

Instead of latex or acrylic, your contractor should apply silicone-based caulk around the replacement windows. This type of caulk works better in cold weather applications and excels at weatherization and waterproofing. Proper caulk application can contribute to improved HVAC system performance and lower heating and cooling costs. 

Ask Your Contractor to Use Sealant With High Joint Movement

One way to help ensure your new windows perform efficiently is to ask your contractor to use sealant with high joint movement. Caulk with plus or minus 25% is ideal for cold weather installation.

"I can't say enough about Renewal by Andersen. From our initial sit down with the salesman to the final touches being put on our new windows, the whole experience was great! The windows look amazing & the installers were very careful to keep everything clean & cause minimal disruption in my home. Yes, they may be a little expensive, but you pay for what you get. These are quality windows installed by trained professionals. Communication was great & time frame was faster than i expected. They really deliver! I literally had nothing to worry about accept writing the check. I would strongly recommend this company to others! And I'll be calling them back out in the Spring to replace the last 3 windows on my house!"
