With Toronto bestrewed in cold and snow for a good chunk of the year (think of the poor window installers), some times of the year are better than others to get your windows replaced.
Of course you probably want to proceed with your window replacement project as soon as possible, but these are the optimal times to get a window replacement in Toronto.
When you’re retiring
There’s no better way to celebrate the end of a career and a future of relaxation than a riveting window replacement project!
In all seriousness, if retirement is on the horizon, it may be best to align your window replacement project with that milestone. Since you’re unlikely to relocate and are settling into your home for good, this would be the perfect time to complete any home renovations so you can enjoy your hard-earned, long days of nothing.
When the seasons are mild
Torontonians know how harsh winters (and even the fall – thanks, climate change) can be, so a window replacement scheduled for mild spring or warmer summer months is better for both you and your window installers.
For the installation team, it’s far easier and more comfortable to work outside when the weather’s pleasant – they can work at a faster pace, ensuring the job is done quicker. For you the homeowner, there’ll be times during the installation process where there’s large open spaces exposing the inside of your home to the outdoors. You’d rather have a fly or two buzz in rather than waves of snow and sleet.
When you’re selling your home
If you’re planning to sell your home, springing for new replacement windows is wise. They’re one of the best dollar-to-value home renovation projects you can invest in, allowing you to up your asking price thanks to the added curb appeal and thermal efficiency in the home.
It’s a fast, simple way to have your home stand out in the crowded, competitive Toronto real estate market.
When you’re repairing damage to your home
If a natural disaster hits your home and you’re in need of renovations, look at the whole picture – it may a good time to consider replacement windows if your house is due for some upgrades.
Since your windows may have to be repaired due to auxiliary house damage, it may be worth having them fully replaced. It’s more upfront costs, but in the long run, you’ll save on energy bills, plus you won’t have to worry about upgrading your windows for a long, long time.
