In the Pacific Northwest, homeowners tend to schedule home improvements, such as door or window replacement, for the spring and summer when the weather is considered more favorable. However, fall is also a great time to get these needed improvements underway, and here are three reasons why:

1.)  Installation Professionals Are More Readily Available

Homeowners who try to arrange window or door replacement in the spring and summer might end up having to wait weeks or even months for the actual install because installation professionals are in the midst of their peak season. In the fall, installation schedules tend to open up a bit, making it more likely that a professional can complete your project right away.

2.)  You Can Begin Maximizing Home Energy Savings Before Winter

Many homeowners want their windows and doors replaced not only to boost the appearance of their home, but also so they can enjoy energy savings. Just replacing old windows with Energy Star qualified windows can lower your home’s energy costs by 7% to 15%, according to EnergyStar.gov. If you have Energy Star qualified windows, doors and skylights installed before winter’s coldest days arrive, you’ll be able to take full advantage of energy saving during the season you’ll need it most.

3.)  Impress Holiday Guests

If you plan to host family and welcome guests over the holidays, replacing doors and windows with attractive, updated options is a good move to help your guests feel welcome and to cultivate a more modern feel in older homes. Remember: your door is where you welcome trick-or-treaters and hang festive holiday wreaths. Why not make it a true focal point?
