Getting replacement windows and doors is not a small expense or project. You need to be ready financially, mentally, physically. But then, asking if window replacement one-by-one or all at once is better, the general answer is “It depends.” No home, no window replacement project is the same in materials, size, or style, and the number of windows.
The ultimate decision is usually the homeowner’s budget. When door and window replacement is needed, the budget may only afford one at a time, starting the worst one first. If your finances allow it though, replacing several or all at once is the best option for both aesthetics and energy efficiency.
This depends on you and your contractor’s schedule. An experienced, reliable window replacement contractor will have the equipment, manpower, and tools to get the job done professionally and quickly. You should not expect to handle a hole in your house without being protected from the cold. Another concern that gives many people thought about having window replacement installed is the adhesives and caulking.
The late spring and summer months are popular times for door and window replacement, and because of that, you could have scheduling conflicts. As far as comfort while the work is being done, winter is better and easier to deal with keeping warm than keeping cool in the summer.
Spring and summer bring rain and storms, another factor to consider. Window install appointments have to work around that, but get on the schedule as soon as possible, even if the date is a month or two out is always recommended.
Again, it can depend on many factors, but the average time for one window replacement can take up to one hour. A professional window replacement company can do 15 windows in a day if there are no extenuating situations.
