If you want to install replacement windows in Tacoma, WA in your home, you can do it at any time of the year. A good window installation company will be able to put your new windows into place in the summer, spring, fall, or winter. But more often than not, homeowners usually choose either the fall or spring for window installation since the temperatures outside tend to be favorable during both those seasons. Which of these two options is best, though?
There are some people who might give spring a slight advantage. But we would argue that there are also lots of benefits of installing replacement windows in your home in the fall. Check out a few reasons why fall might be best below.
The temperatures in Tacoma are slightly better in the fall than they are in the spring.
The temperatures in Tacoma are usually on the milder side in both the fall and the spring. But on average, the fall season is slightly warmer than the spring. In September, October, and November, the average highs are 69 degrees, 61 degrees, and 51 degrees. In March, April, and May, meanwhile, the average highs are 53 degrees, 58 degrees, and 65 degrees. You’ll give your Tacoma, WA window installers perfect weather for installing new windows by doing installation in September or October.
It rains a little less in Tacoma in the fall than it does in the spring.
There’s no escaping the rain when you live in Tacoma. Outside of the middle of summer when the rain slows down just a bit, it rains a lot during the rest of the year. But it’s not quite as rainy in the fall as it is in the spring. September, October, and November average 7 days, 8 days, and 14 days of rain per month, while March, April, and May average 11 days, 10 days, and 7 days of rain. September and October once again prove to be the sweet spot when it comes to both temperature and rainfall.
It’s often easier to prepare for new windows in the fall as compared to the spring.
Getting your home prepared for replacement windows can be tricky in the spring. After a long, rainy winter, there is so much clean-up that will need to be done during the spring before your new windows can go in. You’ll also need to prep your home in the fall, but as long as it isn’t unseasonably rainy in the summertime, there will be a lot less prep to do.
More people seem to install new windows in the spring as opposed to the fall.
The fall and spring are both busy times of year for most window companies. They’re called on to replace windows in many homes during the two seasons. But the spring usually edges the fall out in terms of how busy it is. This means that you might have a slightly easier time scheduling window replacement in the fall rather than waiting until spring.
At the end of the day, the fall and spring are both great times to do Tacoma, WA window replacement. But if you don’t want to wait for next spring to come around, take advantage of the benefits of installing new windows in your home in the fall.
