When is the Best Time to Buy New Windows?

Most people prefer to handle their home renovations during the milder seasons of the year so that they don’t have to worry about inclement weather, but is this really the most economical option? Professional window installation can happen at any time of year, and our highly trained installers are able to work in just about any conditions.

In an area with such long winters, it’s simply not possible to only perform installations during the best weather conditions, so our teams have learned how to work around bad weather! In fact, our teams are able to get your job done in just about anything short of a blizzard.

Spring and Summer

The downside to getting your windows replaced during the peak season of the spring and summer is that everybody else is getting their windows replaced at the same time. Replacement companies become busy and it can be harder to get the date you want when all of your neighbors are also getting replacement windows.

However, there is a brief lull during the end of August when many families are busy with back to school shopping, moving kids into college dorms, and taking final vacations. During this time, window replacement companies are often much less busy than the rest of the summer and are likely more flexible with their availability. If you decide to get your windows replaced during this time, move quickly to book your spot before the early fall rush.

Fall and Winter

September and October can often be some of the busiest months of the year as families hurry to complete their home renovation projects before the worst of the weather arrives. If you must have your windows replaced during these two months for whatever reason, it’s best to book early!

In the winter, as long as the snowstorms hold off, you will have a dedicated team of professionals committed to getting your job done quickly and properly. You are less likely to experience delays and on average are more likely to get the exact dates you desire.

Top 5 Reasons to Replace Your Windows

  1. Increase your property value
  2. Save money on heating and cooling costs
  3. A warmer, cozier home in the winter
  4. A cooler, more enjoyable home in the summer
  5. Increased aesthetic appeal

    I actually hate the pressure when it’s busy season with anything, not just with home improvements. I have been putting off hiring a staff to help us install some new windows because I didn’t want to deal with the stress of competing with other people and I don’t want to spend my weekends waiting for an installation crew. Back to school/ vacation time is idea and I hadn’t thought about it. Thanks!
