Winter Window Replacement: What to Expect

It is fairly easy to understand why homeowners feel the hesitation to replace their old, ineffective windows near the end of fall or in the dead of winter. From warm air escaping and cold, frosty air seeping inside to the installation crew tracking snow under their boots, there are a few things to get worked up over. Good news! Here at Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri, we can put those worries to rest and give you the confidence that you can replace your windows no matter the season. 

Winter Window Replacement: What to Expect


Window Replacement in the Winter


An efficient, swift and professional installation are key to a successful window replacement service during the glacial winter months. Our certified installers follow a specialized window installation process to help you protect your home and the occupants from uncomfortable conditions. Here are the steps that we will take during the replacement process:


  1. Close off each room that is being worked on to effectively minimize heat loss around the house.

  2. Work in teams to remove one window at a time. It typically takes five minutes or less to detach each window. This step helps reduce the outdoor exposure to your home.

  3. Cover floor and furnishings to protect them from foot traffic, construction debris and winter severity.

  4. Custom-manufacture each window to 1/8 inch of the opening. This allows installers to add additional installation around the framework once they are in place, helping maximizing the energy efficiency of your replacement windows.


Reasons to Replace Windows in the Winter


First off, winter is the best time to discover problems with your windows due to the tendency of materials to contract when exposed to extreme temperatures. This can manifest itself in the form of leaks and drafts that you have not previously experienced. In addition, you are also likely to get good prices in the wintertime because most companies are less busy, convincing them to offer significant discounts.

"Excellent service and product! They checked in with me every few weeks while we were waiting for the order. I was impressed with Sam, who measured my windows and headed the installation crew. He was respectful and patient with his team. They cleaned up after themselves. Before the new windows I had huge windows that didn’t open. Now I feel much safer and get better temperatures in those rooms."

"My experience with Anderson Renewal was amazing! From the first meeting with Miranda to choose my windows and doors to the installation provided by Tim and his crew was a pleasure! I just bought a home built in the 1960's that needed new windows and a new double front door with sidelights. As everyone knows Anderson Windows are great, but it was the people I interacted with from Anderson that made it such a great experience. It took three days for the windows and door to be installed and they "worked" every minute they were here. My huge front door took most of the day to install because they had to put in a new header and other improvements to make it fit! They even put up new drywall on the inside. Many people in the neighborhood have stopped by to comment on my beautiful front door! I think the crew left my house cleaner than it was before they started! Constantly cleaning up after themselves. I am thrilled with my windows and feel lucky to have met the team at Anderson."
