Is home improvement part of your New Year’s resolutions? Why not start now? If you want to replace your old storm (security), front or patio door, it can actually be beneficial to do it in the winter!
Your doors may not make up the majority of your home’s exterior, but they are important when it comes to the energy efficiency and comfort of your home. Perhaps you were planning to wait until the spring to replace an old door—but you can take care of this during the cold months.
Advantages of Wintertime Installation
Although you can install new doors nearly any time of the year (depending on the weather), there are a few advantages to doing so in December, January or February. Door replacement in the wintertime allows for:
- Lower costs: Installing doors during the off-season can be less expensive than waiting to install them in the spring or the fall, when everybody else is. Sometimes you can find discounts on products when you purchase them during the winter.
- Shorter wait times: In the winter, door installers aren’t in high demand—it tends to be their slower season, which means greater scheduling flexibility and shorter wait times. Your new doors can be installed in a timelier manner.
- Less disruption: Replacing your doors in the winter can also be more convenient than replacing them in the spring or fall, when the weather is nicer. Most families stay indoors when it’s cold—you won’t have to worry about your outdoor party being disrupted and your yard being less accessible. Door installation won’t be as disruptive when you’re relaxing by the fire!
