It seems that every spring and fall our calls for window replacement quotes increase dramatically because homeowners mistakenly believe that’s the only good time to install new windows. In reality, there is no bad time to replace your windows when you hire the right replacement window company. The right company has a method that prevents your home from the elements for more than a few minutes at a time.
An experienced replacement window company like Cooley Roofing and Construction does a lot of preparation prior to removing even the first window for replacement. Because we custom measure each opening, place the order and wait for the entire order to arrive, we don’t schedule your installation until we have everything we need. You can help by removing window treatments and any wall hangings around the windows prior to our scheduled arrival date. In the case of extreme weather we may need to change our installation date but that is rare.
Once we arrive at your home, we may take one of two approaches depending on the scope of the job. Either we remove all the trim around the windows we are replacing or work window by window. Once we get to the point of replacing the actual windows, our installers remove one window at a time (or two if they are adjoining) and replaces them before removing any additional windows. Each window is only left open for a few minutes at a time. So if it’s summer, your home isn’t open to pests, heat, or a pop up thunderstorm and if it’s winter, you don’t need to worry about heating the outside.
There are exceptions to normal installation practices. Sometimes we find water damage or termites in window frames. When that is the case, we’ll talk to you about what can be done and either put the old window back in until the other damage can be repaired or simply repair it. A company like Cooley Roofing and Construction has the knowledge and licensing to repair many different types of issues. In the case of water damage, we can find the source of the leak and repair it as well.
