Window Replacement Myths and MisconceptionsThere are plenty of myths and common misconceptions about replacing your windows and more often than not there is an underlying truth that proves them to be myths and misconceptions. Here are a few common ones that you need to see past.

Replacement windows will damage my house

One thing that deters a lot of people from replacing their windows is that they think that the rest of the house will be damaged and they can’t comprehend mess inside their home. This however is not the case as a good window fitter will be able to get the job done most of the time without even moving one single brick.

He will also be able to be out of your hair in 2 to 3 days, depending on the amount of windows you would like to replace. This will make it well worthwhile when you no longer have a draft and the other problems that come with a window that needs replacing.

The best time to replace a window is summer

Summer is an ideal time to replace a window but it is no better than any other time of year because a window fitter that knows what they are doing will have all of the necessary equipment to keep the heat in your home whilst they deal with the new window. As mentioned already they could be finished the job within 2 to 3 days maximum which means that you would have maximum efficiency for the rest of winter after one day’s work which seems extremely worth it when you think of the money you will save on energy bills and the comfort you will feel with your new window fitted.
