Spring is the perfect time to Check & Replace Home Windows
Replace Home Windows. After the thaw that follows a harsh winter, there is no better time to check and potentially replace the windows of your home.
Winter is the time of the year when your windows will face the toughest tests in terms of durability and resilience, as they face everything that Mother Nature can throw at them.
Strong winds, driving rains and of course the occasional sub-zero freezes will all compromise your windows in a number of ways.
The freeze thaw action of erosion, which affects features of the natural world like rocks and trees, can also play havoc with the integrity of your seals, hinges and frames alike.
If you were to replace your windows in autumn, you’re almost setting yourself up to fail, as the first real test that your windows will face could likely be their toughest.
You don’t want to find out that there are issues in the depths of winter, even if only in terms of calling a repair man out.
That would be far from ideal.
Any leaks that your windows might develop, or any cracks from the freezing action, are most likely to occur in the winter months, meaning that they are most likely to be on your mind as we head into spring.
This makes spring the perfect time to act, as with the memory of a ruined carpet or a breezy night’s sleep at the front of your mind, you should feel inspired to get to the root of the problem.
Of course, completely replacing your windows won’t always be necessary. In fact, most homeowners don’t replace their windows unless there is a major issue with them.
That said, what’s wrong with getting some peace of mind as the sun starts to show itself again?
Check your windows every spring for faults and defects. That way, you’ve got the whole period of time from March right through to summer, to get the problem sorted and prepare your home for another round with winter.
