Why summer is the best time to do window and door replacement
If your Winnipeg home has worn-out windows and doors and you’re thinking about replacing them, now is the time to do it! During summer – May through September – is the best time to complete your window and door replacement project.
Why? In this article, All Canadian Renovations will explain why you should hire our contractor team to replace your windows and doors in the summer. Let’s get started.
The weather is just right for window and door replacement
If you wait to have your windows and doors replaced until early autumn – October, November – you may have some trouble dealing with the temperature. Depending on the size of your home, it could take up to 2-3 days longer to finish your window and door replacement renovation. And during this time, it’s best to have your A/C or heating turned off so that you’re not wasting money. While our team doesn’t necessarily mind working in the cooler temperatures – most heating systems won’t be able to keep up and the home will be much cooler inside as we complete the work.
You’ll also benefit from longer days – our work crew will be able to work longer hours without artificial light, which means that your project can be completed much more quickly.
Window and door replacement lead to energy bill savings
Don’t underestimate the cost of drafts. A 1/8th inch gap around a door can allow as much air into your home as a small window that’s halfway open – and if you have drafty windows and doors throughout your home, you’ll have trouble keeping yourself comfortable in the summer and winter.
Not only that, but you’ll pay more in heating and cooling bills. But by replacing your windows and doors in the early summer, you can save quite a lot of money while running your A/C unit – and you’ll continue to see savings when the weather cools down.
The seal around your windows and doors will be more effective sooner
The caulk and sealing compounds used to insulate doors and windows does not set quickly in freezing temperatures. During the process of door replacement or window replacement, the compound will take a lot longer to seal properly in these conditions.
But in the summer, especially in the mornings, early summer or late summer, the temperature is just right for the chemical reactions that harden and seal caulk and other similar joining compounds.
Your door and window replacement project could be eligible for a Manitoba Hydro rebate
Of course, we understand replacing windows and doors at your home can be an expensive proposition. However, with any home renovation project, it’s important to weigh the upsides and benefits. When your window and doors are replaced, your home will immediately become more energy efficient. As well, you’ll receive an instance return-on-investment as window and door replacement is one of the top home renovations that result in ROI.
So, no matter your situation – whether you plan to move or if you’re staying put – it makes sense to have your windows and doors replaced. As well, with any renovation project that results in the improvement of energy-efficiency within the home, we encourage our clients to look for potential rebate and grant programs, like Manitoba Hydro. On the Manitoba Hydro website, they have a window and door replacement program – which could help with the financing for your project in a big way!
