As long as you hire the right window company, any season is ideal for a window replacement. You can rest easy knowing that the pros have the tools, knowledge, skills and experience to handle the project as efficiently and effectively as possible without causing hassles, such as wasted energy and issues with indoor comfort.
Having said that, tackling this project during fall provides you a unique set of advantages you could enjoy. As the local authority in professional window replacement, Renewal by Andersen® of Nashville encourages you to plan it during this season. We discuss reasons for doing so and the things to keep in mind.
No Threat of Harsh Weather
Temperatures in Nashville and surrounding areas become more moderate as soon as fall rolls in, ranging between the 60s and 70s through November. The season also sees the area receiving the lowest average rainfall – more or less three inches in October – and almost the same amount of sunlight as summer.
Installing replacement windows under these pleasant outdoor conditions does make sense. Delays are less likely, though rain could affect the project’s duration. Nonetheless, it generally takes a day to install these fixtures.
Off-Season Window Replacement
Another reason to pursue window replacement in the fall is because this season marks the end of the busy period for window contractors. The demand for home improvements tends to be high over the spring and summer, where it’s not unusual to wait a while before getting accommodated for the project.
In the fall, you’ll be less likely to encounter this. This allows you to get scheduled rather quickly. Also, window companies look to meet quotas and maximize sales by launching promo offers and offering low-cost financing deals. This makes fall a great time to get the best value of your replacement windows.
Factors to Consider
There are many things you should consider when tackling window replacement in the fall. Here are some of them:
Schedule the Installation During Warm Weather.
Warm weather makes it easier for the pros to install your, for example, sliding windows. Caulk adheres better under such conditions than it does when it is cold. Latex caulk, for instance, must be applied within the 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit range. This ensures proper curing, which helps tighten the windows’ seal.
Make Sure the Pros Protect Your Home.
There’s no guarantee that the weather will stay pleasant in autumn. That said, you must find out how the installers plan to execute the job. We make sure to protect your home. Our crew dons protective footwear to ensure cleanliness. In case it rains, we will set up a shelter outside the work area to prevent the elements from getting inside your home.
Prepare Your Home Before Installation Day.
Doing some preparations days before the contractor arrives at your home makes your project easier. After all, the fall is the best time to do home maintenance after exposing your exterior and interior to the elements of spring and summer. Remove dust and pollen that has settled near your windows. Also, remove any furniture, making sure not to obstruct the crews’ movement as they bring in your replacement windows.
