Is Installing Replacement Windows in Winter Possible?

Thursday, December 6th, 2018 by Amber Chesney

Whether it’s nearing the end of fall or in the dead of winter, we understand the hesitation homeowners have when it comes to making the decision to replace windows or patio doors—the warm air will escape and cold air will enter (along with all the outside elements), the crew will track in snow and mud, or it’s just too cold for installers to do their best work and successfully install your windows. Well, we’re here to put those worries to rest and give you the confidence to trust Renewal by Andersen to replace your windows no matter what the season. 

We’ve long understood that a great window is only as good as the team of installers behind it, and an efficient, swift, and professional installation is even more important during the frigid winter months. That’s why our Certified master Installers follow a special winter installation process to help protect your home (and your heating bill). 

Our winter installation process includes: 

  • Closing off each room that is being worked on to minimize heat loss
  • Working in teams to remove only one window at a time, minimizing outdoor exposure to your home (each window is typically removed for five minutes or less)
  • Covering and protecting floors and furnishings from foot traffic, construction debris, and the winter harshness
  • Custom-manufacturing each window to 1/8” of the opening so the installers can add additional installation around the framework once they are in place, helping to maximize energy efficiency

You don’t have to suffer with cold, drafty, and inefficient windows for another winter. Schedule a free consultation with one of our design experts and learn more about our winter installation process, our products and options, and receive a free window estimate.
