With mild, pleasant weather on the horizon, you are likely turning your attention to the outdoors, even when inside your home. This means you are paying more consideration to your windows, appreciating the sun streaming through the pane.
But with more time spent at your windows, you may be more likely to notice where there is a problem with them. Chesapeake Roofing, a home improvement company, describes issues with your windows you may encounter as the weather becomes warmer.
Keep Pests Outside
Rising temperatures outdoors means more critters roaming outside of your home. Ants, flies, and other pests may be able to enter your house through windows if they are broken or run down.
Your contractor can repair or replace windows to keep your home safe from outside elements, including unwanted insects. You can feel cleaner and more secure in your household with new or updated windows.
Save on Your Energy Bill
If your windows are not in the best shape, air could be escaping into or out of your home. When the weather is hot, you are likely keeping your house cool with air conditioning.
If air escapes your window, it becomes more difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. This requires more energy to be used from your cooling system, which raises the cost of your utility bill.
Window repairs or updates can help your home feel comfortable as well as keep your spending as low as possible. You can also feel relieved that your home is more efficient with new windows and therefore better for the environment.
Warm Weather Replacement Benefits
Home improvement experts recommend installing or replacing windows during the off-season, or summer months, for improved flexibility with contractors’ schedules. Costs tend to be lower for these projects during this time of year as well, so you can save money while enhancing your home.
The caulk used for window replacement is better suited for milder temperatures too, which is another reason warm weather months are the perfect time for this project. Cold temperatures risk splitting or cracking caulk, but if the temperature is above 80 degrees, the caulk may not set properly. You can clarify the timing of your project with your contractor.
