You heard what the groundhog said—there will be six more weeks of winter. Unfortunately, the cold and dreary weather makes many of us want to hibernate instead of looking ahead. But if you’re interested in replacing your windows and doors, now’s the perfect time to start looking at your options. Here are a few reasons why.
1. Get Your Pick of Timeslots
Spring tends to be a popular time for door and window replacement work. But it’s not top of mind for most prospective clients in the middle of winter. As a result, if you reach out now, chances are, you can get a jump on all the other homeowners and have your pick of times and dates.
If you’re wondering why spring? over the other seasons, it’s mostly about comfort and convenience. Compared to other reno projects, doors and windows don’t take too long. But having your home open and exposed during the chilly months of the winter or the hottest days of summer can still be unpleasant, even if it’s for a short time. Spring offers the best combination of factors: mild temperatures, which are ideal for applying foam insulation and caulking, and longer daylight hours, for a more efficient windows and doors installation.
2. You’ll Have Plenty of Lead Time
Replacing your windows and doors can be a big decision. Starting the consultation stage now gives you time to carefully weigh and consider your options before making your choices. It also makes it easier to accommodate complex projects or custom orders—sometimes, one-of-a-kind pieces need to be requested ahead of time.
And if you decide on a complex, multistep replacement? You won’t stress about timelines in spring. If the work stretches into the early summer, it’s generally not a cause for concern for most homeowners. However, if you start the same project in the fall, dropping temperatures and possible snowfall might be more top of mind.
At Torwin, we can work with tight turnarounds and deliver on the doors and windows of your dreams. But renovations can be stressful for homeowners. Knowing there’s ample time for you to carefully consider your choices can help ease some of that anxiety.
3. Your Windows Will Be Ready for the Hotter Months Ahead
Another reason homeowners like to replace their windows and doors in the spring? These brand-new fixtures will be installed and ready to go in the summer, when energy bills tend to go up from all the air conditioning. Older models are known for cracks and gaps, which leak cool air and drive your energy costs up. New, energy-efficient windows and doors will keep your home comfortable all summer, fall, and winter long.
It may not feel like it, but the spring months are closer than you think. If you’re considering replacing your windows and doors this year, now is a great time to start gathering quotes and mulling over your choices. Connect with Torwin for a free consultation to learn more!
