Most homeowners get their siding replaced during spring or summer. However, are those really the best times of the year for a siding replacement?
Find out why fall is the best season to accomplish this project from a siding repair expert.
Material & Labor Deals
Siding materials can go on sale in the fall when the contractor’s new winter inventory comes in. It means you can get great discounts on clearance products. You don’t have to worry because these off-season materials don’t have issues.
There is less demand for installations in fall so the schedules of siding and roofing contractors aren’t as hectic. You may get good deals on labor since contractors are accepting whatever job they can. Since the contractors don’t have hectic schedules, they can focus more on your project and accomplish it faster.
Hot Weather Installation Issues
Vinyl siding expands when exposed to heat. When installed in hot weather and nailed too tight, it can buckle or crack when it contracts in cold weather. The mild temperatures of fall are suitable for the installation of different siding materials, like wood and vinyl.
Be Prepared for Winter
You’d want to have your siding replaced before the freezing temperature hits. Cracks and gaps in your old siding can increase your energy costs in winter and make your home uncomfortable. Siding installation is an opportunity to add house wrap to your home. It can protect interior walls from moisture and significantly reduce heat loss. Even without a house wrap, a new siding will seal gaps that allow drafts and cold air in winter.
