If you are looking into Markham, ON replacement windows, you get to choose when the windows are installed. Should you move forward with the project during the summer months or is it better to wait? The good news is, other than a huge rain storm, there’s no bad time to install replacement windows. You won’t be leaving your whole home open to the elements at any time. You get the installation done one window at a time and your home will only be open to the outside for ten minutes (or so) at a time. There’s no real perfect time to install new windows so the best time is whenever you need them.
The Window Installation Process
When you choose your replacement windows, you’ll then work with the window company to find a good date for the installation. The process usually takes one day, but it depends on how many windows you have to install and how complicated the installation is going to be. You’ll want to clear the space around each window before the installation to make things smoother and remove window treatments and anything else hanging near the windows.
The installation will remove the windows and the trim around them and then replace the windows one at a time. If the trim is in good condition, it might be replaced, otherwise, you may need new trim. The process is straightforward unless there are issues found once the old windows are removed.
You never really know what installers will find when they take out old windows. There could be rot, mold, or other structural items they have to fix before they can move on. Rest assured, they won’t leave your home with a gaping hole in it at the end of the workday. Your windows need to go in a certain way and repairs might have to be made first. When those things happen, at least you know they are being taken care of to prevent further damage in the future or for things to go wrong around your new windows.
While summer is a fine time to go for replacement windows, you ultimately get to choose. If your project can wait and you want to put it off till fall or even spring, you can certainly do that. Keep in mind that new windows will save you money on your heating and cooling bills any season of the year. The sooner you have them installed, the sooner you will start to save money on energy bills.
