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.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
