The Truth Behind 3 Common Window Replacement Myths

The Truth Behind 3 Common Window Replacement Myths

Replacing your windows is a pretty straightforward task for the most part, but thanks to a few myths circulating out there, some homeowners tend to put it off. These myths mostly start off as one person’s bad experience that is later taken as gospel truth. If you’re thinking about replacing your old windows, but are having second thoughts because of misinformation, today, we set the record straight.

Myth #1: Wood Is Still the Best Window Material Available

While there is a lot to be said about wood’s timeless charm that lends your home a certain warmth, it can be argued that modern materials like vinyl are far superior. Unlike wood, vinyl is resistant to rot and mold growth. Also, vinyl windows will require far less maintenance than traditional wooden ones.

Myth #2: You Can’t Replace Your Windows During Winter

While it may seem logical to not have any kind of exterior work done when the temperature drops, in reality, an experienced window replacement company will always take the necessary steps and precautions to ensure that your home is protected from the bitter cold. This piece of information is especially useful to know if you need emergency window work done during the winter.

Myth #3: A Window Replacement Can Take Weeks

While manufacturing special windows can indeed take a bit of time, the actual installation process will only take a day or two. Depending on the season, your local window contractor may also have a lot of work lined up so the company may not be able to get to you quickly. Rest assured, however, once you have a date scheduled, the installation will take no time at all.
