When it comes to replacing your windows, there are actually good and bad times to do it. In Renewal by Andersen® of Houston’s book, spring or early summer presents ideal conditions to pull this project off with as little stress as possible.
Fast Caulk Adhesion
Installers use a sealant to cover the narrow gaps between the windows and the frame openings. Any home improvement professional knows that caulking is best done when it is not too hot or too cold. Extremely hot weather can cause the sealant to cure improperly while the cold can make the substance not flow smoothly and evenly.
Anywhere between 40 degrees and 80 degrees supports proper caulk adhesion, which are common temperatures during the spring and early summer.
Less Material Movement
Materials expand and contract because of significant temperature fluctuations. Extreme weather may cause the framing material to move enough for the caulk to crack. To avoid the need to redo the sealant later on, pick the date of installation when the weather is less likely to become intense.
Renewal by Andersen of Houston’s Certified Master Installers know how to remove and put in windows safely and efficiently even when the elements are harsh. Precipitation increases the number of hazards window professionals have to contend with, so it’s best to plan the project when the weather is consistently good.
