Why September Is Ideal for Storm Window Installation in Minneapolis

Regardless of whether yours is an older home with old single-pane glass windows, an historic home with those gorgeous old windows, or even a newer home with energy-efficient replacement windows, we’d like you to consider having storm windows installed. Minneapolis weather can be harsh, and storm windows can provide one more layer of protection and insulation.  

Own a Home in Minneapolis? Why You May Need Storm Windows

Now, you probably get the need for storm windows if you’ve got older windows that aren’t energy efficient but are still in good shape.  This is particularly true if your home is an historic one with beautiful wood windows you’d like to retain.  But if you have relatively new windows that are already energy-efficient, you might think that storm windows aren’t needed.

In most cases they aren’t.  But if you’ve got a portion of your home that gets blasted with winter windows blowing out of the north, having storm windows installed on that side of your home could up the energy efficiency of the windows on that side even more.

Another reason is if your home is in a high-traffic area or one where outside noise can make its way into your home.  Storm windows add another layer of air between the inside and outside and can block a lot of that outside noise.

And then there’s the reason these windows are called ‘storm’ windows – storms.  Particularly storms that bring hail, sleet, and bits of ice.  Storm windows can protect your windows from damage.

Why Is Fall a Good Time to Have Storm Windows Installed?

Storm window installation in September or another early fall time is ideal.  The weather is mild, and getting them on now means you’ll be ready when things turn nasty.  Another consideration is your landscaping.  Since a lot of it is dying back right now, there are less issues with needing to protect or concern about possible damage.

Yet another reason is our schedule.  We find that as things get colder, people tend to have concerns about getting storm windows installed right away.  Beat the rush and get on our installation schedule now!

And finally, the building products industry tends to announce price increases around the end of the year or the beginning of the new year.  So take advantage of existing prices and save!
