Installing Replacement Windows In The Winter

While replacing your windows isn’t the biggest home improvement job, it does require some planning. One big planning step is deciding when you want to do your window replacement. Though the winters aren’t all that bad in Mission Viejo, CA, many homeowners express a lot of hesitation and concern about doing a window replacement in the winter. They list many worries, from the warm air escaping and cold air and other outside elements entering, and the crew tracking in water and mud, to it simply being just too cold for a successful installation of the replacement windows on their Mission Viejo, CA home.

Despite these worries, winter window replacements are quite possible, and sometimes better than window replacements during the spring, summer or fall. Window contractors aren’t as busy in the winter, so you might have an easier time finding a date that works with your schedule. You might also get a better deal as the window contractor businesses are looking for more work in their “off” season.

Most window contractors have set plans in place to perform winter window installations. Some common steps that these plans include are:

  • Closing off each room that is being worked on to minimize heat loss
  • Working in teams to remove only one window at a time, effectively minimizing outdoor exposure. Experienced teams can have each window removed for about five minutes or less, reducing the outdoor exposure even more.
  • Covering and protecting floors and furnishings from winter elements like water, mud, and, God forbid, snow, as well as from foot traffic and construction debris.
  • Custom-manufacturing each window to 1/8” of the opening so the installers can add additional installation on site, helping to maximize energy efficiency and reduce installation time.

Its also important to remember that a window replacement is only as good as the installation team, and an efficient, swift, and professional installation is even more important during the chilly Mission Viejo, CA winter months.
