As we round the bend into fall and winter is swiftly approaching, many homeowners experience cold drafts that seep in through faulty windows—disrupting the warmth and comfort of their home. Is fall or winter a good time to install new windows? Absolutely! In fact, window installation can be successfully completed during any season of the year.
A professional installer makes sure that your home is protected from the weather during installation. At Lakeside Renovation & Design, as soon as we open an area of your house, we close it up quickly to keep the elements outside your home where they belong.
Window Installation in Every Season
Could fall work for my window installation?
Window installation isn’t seasonal. It is versatile and successful every season of the year. Although it rains each fall in St. Louis, experienced professionals can ensure your window installation is done to perfection—in spite of the weather. Contractors usually have more open schedules in the fall, and sealing your windows from cold air before winter arrives makes it an ideal time to replace them. You’ll enjoy lower energy bills as a result.
Is it too cold during the winter to install new windows?
Scheduling your window replacements for the winter has its advantages. You’ll avoid heavy competition with contractor’s availability, streamlining the overall installation time. And your contractor can install one window at a time, and close off the room or use a temporary or zip wall to contain cooler air, ensuring your indoor comfort.
Do I need to wait until spring for replacement windows?
While spring is traditionally when most homeowners evaluate their exteriors and initiate upgrades, spring can take longer to get the work scheduled due to its popularity. Yet spring has built-in lovely temperatures that make it easy to replace multiple windows without the need for contractors to close off rooms to keep unwanted temperatures out of the rest of your home.
Should I have windows installed during the summer heat?
During summer, you want to save on energy bills so that all the heat from outside isn’t getting in. You desire a cool comfortable interior, and new windows ensure that’s exactly what you’ll have. Professional installation crews ensure summer heat doesn’t get into your home during window installation. They take the necessary precautions to protect your home from hot, humid outdoor air. Installation times may be shorter during the summer due to good weather.

- Style: Choose from single- or double-hung, casement, slider, awning, picture, garden, bay or bow windows.

- Energy elements: Choose multi-paned glass and gas fills to lower utilities.
- Security features: Get durable window locks that ensure your home is well protected.
