Hurricane season starts from June to the end of November; consequently, the best months to start changing impact windows and doors in South Florida are from December to May.
Temperature is moderate (70s during the day and 50s at night) with a lower percentage of humidity level; therefore, it provides the best condition for any home renovation.
It usually takes an average of 6-12 weeks to complete the installation because when changing your windows and doors, you need to ask for city permits, and in some cases, if you have HOA, they also need to approve it. In addition, each window and door are a custom order, so once the city approves it, companies like FB Doors will have to order them from the manufacturer. Therefore, the whole process of ordering and installation can last weeks.

How does Rain Affect Window Installation?
Rain affects window installation by filling the humid climate with a more condensed surface. That increases the likelihood that wooden frames will swell and warp. Consequently, to be installed incorrectly. Fillers, caulking, or silicone adhesives may not harden properly if the surface is wet, and it can create an imperfect sealing of your windows. Even though professional installers like FB Doors can complete any installation in any weather, rain could slow the installation process, and we do not recommend it.
