The windows of your home are one of the most useful and important features. Windows are an important component of your home’s exterior and interior aesthetic appeal. Great windows offer views of the outdoors, open up the home with natural light, and circulate clean air into the home.
However, windows don’t last forever. Old and worn-out windows in need of replacement can work against the flow of your home, decreasing its aesthetic appeal, limiting energy efficiency and performance, and costing you more money to heat and cool your home.
If your windows are in need of replacement, waiting until the weather gets warmer isn’t always the best decision. While the summer season has its own set of benefits, many homeowners find that spring is one of the best times of the year for completing all kinds of home improvement projects—window replacement included. In fact, having them installed over the spring months can save you plenty of time and money when compared to getting them done in the high season.
Take a look at this guide to spring replacement windows from FHIA and decide whether it’s really worth it to wait on your next window installation.
First Things First: Do I Need a Window Replacement?
There are many ways to tell if your windows are in need of replacement, and many of these issues become worse in the winter months. Physical damage and unattractive windows are clear signs that your windows need replacement. In the winter season, you also might notice leaks, foggy windows, and condensation becoming trapped around the walls. These are all sure signs that a replacement is necessary.
Other ways to tell if your windows need to be replaced:
Noticing a cold draft coming from the window during windy conditions or in cooler weather.
Water entering your home or showing up in stains or even puddles around the frames or on the walls is another sign.
Leaky, compromised windows, moldy walls and fixtures, and trapped condensation are all important issues to address and that might not be able to be fixed. If repairs are not recommended, it’s worth it to replace the window entirely for a long-lasting, energy-efficient window that adds plenty of value to the home.
Summer vs. Spring Savings for Replacement Windows
Window installation can be expensive, but there are ways to make it more affordable for those working on a tighter budget. One of the best ways to save money on a window installation is to purchase them in the spring. During the early springtime, window contractors and manufacturers alike tend to run better discounts as their business is typically slower. This means that you can take advantage of some of the best prices of the year, simply by making your purchase during the early spring.
Flexible Installation Dates
Summer is known for peak times for home remodeling, and contractors are extremely busy during these months of the year. Scheduling time for a summer window replacement can mean waiting weeks for installation that works for both you and your contractor. In the early spring season, however, contractors are far less busy. Dates can be quite flexible as contractors aren’t as busy, which means a faster and more convenient installation.
