Can Windows be Replaced in Winter?

Here in Minnesota, it may seem like some home repairs and upgrades – such as roofing, siding, and window replacement – are out of the question until the weather turns warm in spring. But that’s not the case! There are several benefits to replacing windows in the winter. We’ll discuss a few below.

Many companies offer discounts or promotions during the colder months. Call around to local contractors to see if there are any sales going on.


Winter is traditionally less busy for contractors and installers, especially after the holidays. This is great for homeowners who don’t want to wait for new window installation! The lull in business makes it easier to get your project scheduled ASAP.

Lower Heating Bills

If your home has drafty windows, you’ll spend the winter cold and uncomfortable. Not only that, but your heating costs could be significantly higher. Don’t wait until next winter to lower your bills and minimize your environmental impact – install new windows today!

Many people don’t install new windows in cold weather, because of concerns about keeping their home at a reasonable temperature during the installation. However, reputable window installers (such as The Chuba Company) will be well-equipped to keep your house warm during installation. Tactics include removing one window at a time and keeping the door to that room closed, and using floor-to-ceiling window barriers. Our experienced installers will keep your home warm during installation, and your new windows will provide warmth for years to come!
