Summer always flies by, doesn’t it? Hopefully you made your way through most of your bucket list—a trip to the beach, a night camping under the stars, maybe even planting a garden?
It’s great to start off the season with an ambitious list, but always a little sad to see the things you didn’t get around to doing.
Don’t worry—you didn’t miss your window. Fall is an excellent time to change out your old windows and give your home an upgrade.
It’s the season for projects
When the dog days of summer are past, it’s a real joy to spend the afternoon outside working on the house. There’s the last of the garden’s bounty to gather up, and you’ll want to turn over the soil and put the garden to rest for the winter. Once the leaves start their changes, it’s time to rake and clean out the gutters. Working outside is part of the natural rhythm of fall.
Our window installation teams love this time of year, too.
When the crews come out to remove your old windows, there’s less work involved with keeping your interiors a comfortable temperature. They don’t have to close off parts of the house to either the winter winds or blistering heat. There are even some caulks that are used in the installation process that set up better in fall temperatures.
If you want ease in scheduling your home improvement take a look at the fall months. Coming into the spring months, there’s a mad dash to take on home improvement. On that first lovely spring weekend, you’d be hard pressed to get a parking spot at the home improvement store.
Come September though, this starts to slow down and it’s much easier to get crews scheduled to come out to do work on the house. It’s a smart move.
It’s almost time to hibernate
Winter is the time when windows do a lot of their heavy lifting. If you spent last winter moving your furniture away from drafty windows, if you noticed your windows frosting up when it snows, or even if you’re tired of paying more for your heat, then you know it’s time to invest in energy efficient windows.
Before the temperatures dip, upgrade to vinyl replacement windows. Vinyl is a natural thermal insulator, and transfers much less heat than materials like aluminum. Heat transfer is measured by something called U-value.
If you look at the U-value and energy star ratings of different types of windows, you’ll see that vinyl replacement windows are a surefire way to lower your heating costs. This affordable, low-maintenance material will be a real blessing in just a few short months.
Take on that vinyl replacement window project now and you’ll have a very cozy, comfy winter.
Company is coming.
The fall is just one long ramp of holidays— from back-to-school it’s just a short time until Halloween. Next thing you know, you’re taking the Thanksgiving turkey out of the oven, and suddenly it’s the Christmas season.
You’re going to need to get the house ready for guests. This fall, go beyond buying a new welcome mat and setting out a pumpkin. Getting new windows installed can give a whole new feeling to your home. New windows will boost your curb appeal—to say nothing of how much it can alter the feeling of the inside of your home.
Rethinking the layout and size of your windows changes the light inside your home. A new window can make a small, dark room suddenly feel cheerful and spacious.
Imagine curling up right next to an energy efficient vinyl window this fall, watching the leaves change in your backyard. When the winter days are shortest, the additional light new windows bring will be most welcome.
Window Nation is ready to get you on the schedule. We can walk you through this whole process, help you choose just the right energy efficient vinyl windows for your home, and get them installed just in time for a very cozy winter.
