The weather outside might still be frightful, but it won’t be for long. Spring is right around the corner, which means the return of sunny mornings and bright, warm days in Minnesota. While you’re outside enjoying all that fresh air, don’t forget to consider your home’s windows.


After all, springtime in the Twin Cities is the perfect time to start thinking about home improvement projects, and your windows should be front and center on your list. Our home improvement team The Window Store loves getting homes in shape after a long winter. Here are a few reasons spring is the best time to replace your old windows.


1.      Enjoy the Fresh Air.

It’s not uncommon in older homes to have windows that simply don’t open. Long ago, someone decided the best “security” for your home would be to nail some of the windows closed.


Or worse, someone carelessly painted over your windows. After decades of continuing the trend, your window is permanently closed. Replacing that window this spring means you’ll be able to enjoy fresh air all spring and summer long.


2.      You’ll Hardly Know We Were There.

Replacing your window doesn’t take long under any circumstances, but even just a few minutes, if it’s very hot or cold outside, can seem an inconvenience. After all, no one likes a disruption in their climate control! That’s the great thing about spring. The weather is temperate and the days are longer, which means we can be in and out of your home with nary a cold chill coming in.


3.      Be Ready for April Showers.

Spring brings vibrant grass and bright mornings, but it can also bring plenty of wet days. That’s why spring is the ideal time to make sure the interior of your home is protected against water infiltration. Leaks in older windows can be hard to detect with a visual inspection, but the water can damage your walls and bring mold and mildew into your home. Replace those windows now and you won’t have to worry.


4.      Don’t Forget May Flowers.

Replacing your old, damaged windows will give you the perfect frame for those lovely spring vistas. We can install garden windows, picture windows, or even bow windows to give you the perfect view. Now all you need is a couple of hummingbird feeders, and you’ll have a view you can enjoy every warm day this summer.
