Get Your Windows Installed Before the Winter Months

Do you need to get new windows installed? If so, we highly recommend that you get them installed prior to winter hitting us full-force. The longer you wait, the colder the weather will be. Plus, the colder your home will be when the process is done. The cold weather brings about more challenges for us during the installation because the area around the window is going to be more brittle. If you want the best results and the longest chance to enjoy your new windows, then contact us today.

Damage from Installing New Windows in the Cold

Window installation involves more than taking out old nails and the old window, and putting in new. On top of shimming the window to make sure it is level, there is also caulking to ensure it stays put. During the winter, everything shrinks. This means that during the summer swells, your windows could be uneven or drafty.

Also, during a cold-weather installation, you have to worry about the potential of more damage to your home. Windows have wood casings in many cases. If the wood is dry and brittle, it is more likely to snap than give when taking out or putting in a window. This could increase both the time and cost of the installation. Even a few degrees above freezing can help. If you are getting vinyl windows, then the vinyl is also more brittle. This can mean cutting the vinyl so the window fits could be much more difficult.

Call Us Sooner Rather Than Later

Here at Stanley Exteriors, we want to be able to help you get your home ready for the winter cold that is bound to hit soon. Temperatures are already dropping below freezing at night. In order to get the warmth new windows can provide, without the extra expense or trouble cold weather can bring, call us today. We will inspect your old windows, tell you which we would recommend replacing right away, and set up the install. That way, you have a warm home that does not have drafts to enjoy all winter long.
