If you’re like many people, you have a household to-do list that’s quickly becoming as long as the length of your house itself. There’s always something to do, whether it’s cleaning out the closets or building a new bed for the dog. The summer season is finally here, and you can tend to outdoor projects — such as the garden and back patio.
The summer is also the perfect time of year to tick off an item that’s probably been on that list for a long time — replacing your windows.
Let’s take a look at why summer is the best time of year to replace your windows.
Take Advantage of the Nice Weather
Casa Bella Windows & Doors is proud to provide services all year round, but we’d be lying if we said that summer wasn’t the ideal time of year to replace the windows in your home.
As your preferred manufacturer and installer of windows and doors in Mississauga and the surrounding area, we recommend starting a big renovation project in the summer. It’s the perfect temperature outside and the days are longer, so it’s easier to install renovations on the outside of the home.
Window replacement requires you to open your home to the elements, and this can become uncomfortable if there’s snow or freezing weather.
When it’s extremely cold, the frigid temperatures can impede construction. Some types of exterior caulking won’t adhere well in cold weather so that you won’t get the most reliable seal.
Sometimes, even spring can cause issues to the installation process if it rains a lot.
Of course, we’ll replace your windows at any time of year. Our installers are licenced and certified with years of experience. We’ll help you with your renovations whenever it suits your schedule.
However, the summer is an optimal time to do it because not only is the weather generally better than other times of the year, but also because when Old Man Winter comes calling a few months later, you’ll have a draft-free and cozy home.
You’ll Enjoy Lower Cooling Costs
Are you debating between sliding vs crank windows and which are more energy-efficient? You won’t have to worry about that with Casa Bella because we only use energy-efficient products, regardless of the type of the window. All of our window styles, including bay windows, are Energy Star® rated.
Keeping the house cool during hot weather can undoubtedly put a strain on your budget, mainly if your existing windows are old and single-pane. If you run the air conditioner 24-7 during the summer months, you’ll notice a significant difference in your utility bill with your new energy-efficient windows.
Your AC unit won’t have to go into overdrive to keep you cool. Our windows have a low-e coating that reduces solar transfer. You won’t feel the heat as much, even when you’re standing beside a sunny window. The coatings also filter out the sunrays, which help to protect your carpets, draperies, and upholstery from fading.
You Will Revel in the Seasons All Year Long
Many old, outdated windows are almost impossible to operate (especially if they’ve been painted), and some might not even open at all. Updating your windows will open up your home to delights that you can enjoy all year long!
Let in that crisp autumn air and fall asleep with a window open. Snuggle up with a book while listening to the rain in the spring. Upgrading your windows now enables you to enjoy all of the seasons ahead.

Have you been holding off on replacing the windows in your home? Has that item been sitting on your list for years? Well, don’t wait any longer. Now is the time to tackle that project and to treat your home to something new. This summer, give your home the much-needed update of a fresh set of beautiful windows.
