Is it possible to repair / install windows in the rain?

Can Windows Be Repaired or Installed in the Rain?

At Argo Window Repair, we often get asked whether window repair or installation can proceed during rainy weather. The answer is nuanced, depending on the specific circumstances and the type of work required.

Factors to Consider:

  • Safety: The safety of our technicians and clients is paramount. Wet conditions can pose risks; therefore, safety assessments are crucial.
  • Sealing and Caulking: Successful sealant application requires dry conditions. Rain can compromise the seal, affecting the window's efficiency and durability.
  • Indoor Work: Some repairs and preparations can be done indoors, away from direct rain, allowing certain tasks to proceed.

Our Approach:

  1. Weather Monitoring: We closely monitor weather forecasts to schedule installations and major repairs on dry days.
  2. Protective Measures: When light rain is present, and outdoor work is unavoidable, we use tents or tarps to shield the work area.
  3. Flexible Scheduling: We maintain flexible scheduling practices to accommodate weather changes, ensuring work is completed in suitable conditions.

Conclusion: While light rain doesn't necessarily halt all window repair or installation work, heavy rain can lead to rescheduling to ensure the highest quality of work and safety. At Argo Window Repair, we prioritize doing the job right, under conditions that ensure the best outcomes for your windows.

Installing windows is not an easy thing.

However, the main difficulties are connected not with the use of any complex equipment and tools, not with the adjustment of complex systems, but with a purely human factor. Manufacturers of windows did their best to make installation quick and without problems. But if the approach is irresponsible, the result is unlikely to leave anyone satisfied.
