You can install new Fort Wayne windows in your home whenever you want. Whether you run into a situation in the wintertime that forces you to install windows then or wait until the spring to do it, an experienced company like Key Exteriors, Inc. can take care of your window installation, regardless of what time of the year it is.
However, if you can help it, there are certain times of the year that are better than others when it comes to installing new windows. You should try to choose one of these times to have installation done. Here are some tips that will help you pick the right time.
Consider choosing a time when it’s warm out without being too warm.
Ideally, you want the temperature to be somewhere between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit outside when you have new windows in Fort Wayne installed. This is the best temperature range for the caulk that’s often used during window installation. Therefore, you should try and pick a day sometime in the late spring or early fall to have your windows installed. It’ll keep your installers comfortable and provide the perfect temperatures for installing windows safely.
Pick a time when outdoor obstacles won’t get in your window installer’s way.
When you have windows installed in your home, your installers will need to be able to access the areas around your windows outside. So you probably want to steer clear of times during the year when there will be obstacles in their way.
For example, if you schedule window installation in the early spring, you might still have snow piles and other remnants of winter hanging around and preventing installers from making a clear path to your windows. At the same time, if you schedule window installation in the late fall, you could have mountains of leaves and other debris littering your lawn. Neither of these situations is conducive to installing windows. It’s better to pick a time during the late spring, early fall, or even sometime during the summer to install windows without any obstacles being in the way.
Avoid waiting until the last minute to have window installation done.
No matter when you decide to schedule window installation, you should avoid putting it off until it absolutely has to be done. While window installers might not necessarily mind coming out in the middle of winter or the middle of summer to hang new windows since this is the time when they’re the least busy, you’re going to make the job more challenging than it has to be for them. They’re going to have to work in extreme temperatures to install your windows for you.
Instead, you should schedule your installation well ahead of time so that they have time to prepare. It’ll result in a more seamless installation for you that won’t take any longer than it has to.
