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.

"When we purchased the windows at the end of February we had been informed the lead time would be middle of August for installation. I was okay with this as they had been straight forward about the time frame. As the process moved forward I was kept informed via email at the various stages. I had received an email at the email of May stating the windows have finished being built and we can schedule installation. I was thrilled to have them be installed by the end of June. The installers showed up on time had been very courteous while performing the installation. They had scheduled 4 days for the installation and had completed it within 3 days. There was an issue with our front door as it was on back order and they brought out the wrong door by mistake, however they installed a temporary door until our door arrived and then came back out and installed the new door. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing replacement doors and or windows."

"A phenomenal removal and replacement of our front door. The installers were very detail oriented and very meticulous. This was the second time we've had doors replace with Renewal by Andersen of SW Missouri and both time our expectations were exceeded."

"The replacement windows are great quality and look great! The windows we are slowly replacing are original to the house, and are Andersen windows that are 40± years old! Our installers are the best! They went above and beyond what was expected of them. I highly recommend!! A+"
