Winter is coming, and with it will come all the cold, snow and ice that is so harsh on your home. Can your current windows withstand the demands of yet another Virginia winter? If the answer is no, it may be time to replace your windows now. It’s best to do this while weather conditions are still relatively mild.
Preparing your home for the plunging temperatures and harsh weather starts with replacement windows, as they are vulnerable areas of entry. Whether you need new double hung, casement or bow windows, here’s why now is the best time to replace your home’s windows.
Damaged Windows are Expensive
Windows that have fallen into a state of disrepair can get very costly, particularly when winter hits. Damaged windows with worn seals will allow heated indoor air to leak out of your home, while welcoming frigid outdoor air inside. The result? You get a chilly interior, a heating system that has to work overtime to compensate, and skyrocketing energy bills.
Winter is an Inconvenient Time to Replace Windows
Installing windows involves the removal of your existing windows, leaving temporary openings in your walls and thus exposing your interior to the elements. Here at Nations Choice, we certainly work quickly and efficiently, but it’s still true that winter just isn’t the ideal season in which to replace your windows. In addition, bad weather, such as ice and snow storms, can delay your project.
Older Windows Breed Mold and Mildew
Winter brings strong storms that come with all sorts of precipitation types. They all result in moisture that can penetrate your home. This moisture breeds mold and mildew, posing a health risk for you and your family. New windows are custom measured to ensure the best fit possible, keeping out moisture and discouraging the growth of mold.
Damaged Windows Are Ugly
Getting new windows prior to winter means that you can increase your curb appeal just in time for the holiday season. You understandably want your home to look its best when entertaining. While old windows are an eyesore, new windows can dramatically enhance the appearance of your house inside and out. Plus, everyone will be more comfortable while inside your house enjoying a party.
