Hi there, are you gearing up to replace your windows and doors and wondering when the best time of year is to schedule the project?
Is it spring right now as you read this, by chance?
Most homeowners tackle these kinds of home improvement questions about the time when the ‘Spring Cleaning’ bug starts to come around.
And while spring is the most popular time, there are a few simple factors to consider — especially in our neck of the woods in the St. Louis area.
Let’s go through them one by one.
Some window and door companies are pretty hardcore.
But there comes a point where the weather is both too much for the installers and for your home. They may only be installing one or two windows and a door at a time, but if the winds are howling, there’s a tremendous heatwave knocking out power, the rain is pouring, or the snow is coming down in buckets… why create safety risks?
Sure, there are ways to get premium replacement windows or Quality Entry Doors installed in all but the most extreme weather, but this should be avoided whenever possible. Our crews are very experienced here in the St. Louis area, so we know the seasonal norms well and always come through for our customers.
Spring & Summer Installs
The spring and summer can both deliver storms of their own – like monsoons in some parts of the country. Others can see insanely humid heat and thunderstorms that no one wants to deal with.
Even when the weather is fair, one issue you may deal with is waiting in line — lead times.
Since the vast majority of us tend to schedule home improvement projects for the spring and summer, local companies like XteriorPRO can get BUSY. You want to make sure you get the best installers and work with great well-proven companies like ours.
Fall & Winter Installs
There is really only one advantage to Window & Door Installations at this time of year: the local window & door companies won’t be in such high demand, nor their most experienced crews.
That said, frigid air, ice, and snow can hamper the best installers. Even if they’re going one window at a time and taking all precautions. Meaning your project takes longer and everything that goes along with it.
At XteriorPRO, we have special wintertime protocols that keep everything moving along smoothly, but it’s definitely our slowest time of year.
The Contractor You Choose
There are endless reasons homeowners have to schedule window and door installations at certain times. Life can get busy! Work can be demanding!
You may need to travel, or you’ve just got too many things going on with family and friends during the summer months.
Whatever the case is, each contractor will approach things differently depending on where in the country you happen to be. Windows and doors can be installed at any time, year-round. But you need a high-quality, dependable, and reputable company you can depend on when YOU need.
