High-impact windows keep your home safe when strong winds start tossing loose items into your home's walls and strong storms uproot trees and break branches that become projectiles. If you've bought an older home that still hasn't been fitted with these windows or if you're planning to replace older high-impact windows with newer, stronger windows, order now. Under the best of circumstances, it can still take a few weeks for the windows to be made. And right now, additional issues outside your control can make that manufacturing time go a little longer. If you order now, you get your windows sooner.
Supply Lines Are Still Recovering
Supply lines and supply chains may take a long time to recover from the absolutely weird years of the early 2020s. While society isn't experiencing the same shortages as it was a couple of years ago, the supply chain is still fragile enough that one incident can create a huge backup, akin to a fender bender creating a massive traffic jam during rush hour. You have to account for unexpected problems that can set off chain reactions now and create more delays for supplies and for labor. Sometimes companies have the supplies but are understaffed. When you order your windows now, you both increase your chances of getting those windows sooner and also give your own remodeling timeframe some wiggle room if the supply chain has issues once again.
Your Order Is Custom-Built
Manufacturing your windows can take time because each window has to be custom-made. You have your specific trims, colors, glass thickness, window size, and so on. Chances are there aren't pre-made windows sitting around that match your needs exactly. High-impact windows can't be made in an hour, and you've got to have patience as the factory makes each one to exacting specifications. This is also a good reason to replace all windows that need to be replaced now rather than going on an as-needed basis.
The Home Remodeling Boom Continues
The home remodeling boom is still going on as people make their homes into places they want to be in long term. After lockdowns, remote work, and quarantines showed many that their homes were not really up to their standards, people started transforming their homes into sanctuaries that had all the comfort they needed. That means that people are still buying new windows. And while new construction may be affected by higher interest rates, buildings are still being built, which means even more windows on order.
Meet with a window company to figure out what you need. Place the order as soon as you reasonably can so that you're able to weather delays while getting windows made to fit. For more information, contact a high-impact window supplier near you.
