When is the best time to get replacement windows in Maryland? Some of you might answer that with a quick “When it’s broken.” The truth is that there actually is an optimal time to get new windows installed—and that time is during spring, when the weather is milder and the days are longer.
Here, we present you with several pretty good reasons why.
It’s a Temperature Thing
Any good contractor worth his salt will probably agree if you ask him to install replacement windows in the middle of winter. Unless it’s a raging blizzard, it’s still good business to give customers what they need. However, because installers are human too, you can expect the work to slow down and stretch for a longer time if the workers have to endure the bitter cold of winter or the sweltering heat of summer. Spring is perfect because the temperatures are more reasonable, helping to ease the installation.
Well, It’s Really a Temperature Thing
Temperature extremes affect not just the people working on an installation—they affect the materials needed for window installation as well. Installations in the scorching heat of summer or the biting cold of winter can suffer from problems like swelling wood for the frames and fluctuations in moisture levels, which can affect the tight tolerances required for installation. Caulking might not even set properly. The only difficulty with installations in spring is that everyone has the same idea! So you might end up waiting for a while for your turn to have replacement windows installed.
