Its summertime in the northwest—the few nice and dry months we get to enjoy. It’s also the perfect season to complete your home repairs before the cold and rainy pacific northwest weather returns. In the wintertime, we tend to receive a large number of emergency water leak repairs. Therefore, it’s challenging to do other home repairs, especially new window and door installations. Waiting can result in high emergency rates and a lack of options when ordering materials due to product wait times. So, get your repairs done now and save yourself from high repair bills and stressful—rushed decisions.
Summertime is the perfect time to get your home’s windows and doors repaired, replaced, or upgraded. With the hotter weather, you might be seeing your energy bill rising. Upgrading to some high-efficiency windows will help lower that cost—whether you are heating or cooling your home. Often, when we inspect windows and doors, we determine that they are in good shape, but are leaking because of poor flashing. Repairing or installing new flashing may be all you need. The good news here is that it’s a lot less expensive to do that, and you will also receive the energy benefits.
Perfect Time To Install New Windows And Doors
It’s easy to remove and install new windows and doors in your home with the dry weather without worrying about the rain getting into your home during the installation. You have time to think and decide on a brand and style, and you are not rushed into a repair due to water leaks like can happen during the winter months. Window and door manufacturers know this, too, and tend to carry more extensive inventories in the Summer months.
Prepare For Northwest Rains Which Are Just Around The Corner
You can enter the cold and rainy three-fourths of the year worry-free, knowing that your windows and doors are watertight and ready to withstand the winter weather. Just last year, we received record rainfall amounts in the Pacific Northwest which led to many emergency calls and temporary repairs. To avoid this we recommend having your windows and doors inspected soon.
