Yes, they do! Just because the weather is ‘cold and frightful’ doesn’t mean that you can’t get your windows replaced! Don’t think that you have to wait for spring to come to do this home remodel project. It can be completed with very little interruption to your home and lives. Here are few of the common concerns that people have with winter window installations and the resolution to them.
Often, the concern people have is that they picture a hole in their wall with no window in it. That is not the case at all. In actuality, the time that your old window is out of its opening and that the new vinyl window is not in it, should be very small. Your replacement windows are all custom made to fit in each window opening so it should be as simple as taking one window out and quickly installing another. Closing the door to the room where the installers are working will cut down on any cold or hot air making its way through your home. If that’s not a possibility, hanging a blanket or drop cloth will help contain the temperature fluctuation to a smaller space.
Another misconception is that the cold temperature will negatively affect the performance of caulking and adhesives. Experienced professionals, like the experts at Window Nation, know exactly which product to use for every temperature and window situation. We will only use a product that has been proven to perform at the given temperature and application that your installation calls for.
Installing new, vinyl replacement windows this winter can help your winter energy budget immensely. Keeping warm air inside and the cold air outside is one of the largest assets of new windows. You will truly feel the difference in your home, as well as in your wallet when new windows become part of your home.
