Installing Hurricane Windows
The best time to install high impact windows in Miami or any area of Florida is during it’s dry season. This will vary from other states as Florida experiences a seasonal shift of wet and dry seasons throughout a few months, similar to other countries like the Philippines that experience a monsoon season. Most other states can conduct remodeling projects during the spring to avoid winter temperatures and avoid the summer’s intense heat, Florida’s best remodeling time frames range from December to mid-May. This avoids most, if any of the seasonal shifts, which typically starts in May and lasts till October. Throughout May to October, Florida can experience heavy rains, receiving nearly 60-70% of their annual rainfall during this period. Additionally, these months correlate with hurricane season, causing the season to play host to some of the most dangerous weather Floridians will experience all year. As such, south Floridians should plan on having any window installation done during the dry season, when temperatures are moderate, with daily averages in the 70s and only dropping to around the 50s overnight. These conditions offer lower humidity levels, offering the best opportunity for any remodeling project.
Humidity and Installation
Rain affects window installation by putting even more humidity into an already arid and humid climate. This high increase in humidity and moisture can increase the likelihood that wooden frames will swell and warp, leaving behind the possibility of a crooked window placement. Caulking, fillers, or silicone adhesives may not harden properly either with the added amount of moisture which may leave the surface too wet, leading to imperfect sealing of your windows as well. There may even be dramatically open holes in your window installation, leaving gaps where water can enter your home. Ensuring a tight and humid free window installation will get you the windows you want faster and more efficiently, giving you time to focus on other things around the house.
