Siding Installation: What’s The Best Time Of The Year
Do you wonder what is the best time of the year for siding installation? Keep reading this article you will find out!
Homeowners often spend their money renovating and remodeling the interior of their home.
Are you one of them?
For your home to function well, you need to take care of your exterior as well. This is not just about the aesthetic components and the beautiful look of your home. It refers to the full functionality of the home as a whole.
However, the most important thing is that your home is optimally functional in both summer and winter.
For today’s blog, we have prepared a conversation with one of our contractors.
In addition, we will answer the most frequently asked questions by homeowners.
What should the owner first keep in mind before renovating his exterior?
A: Well… There are a few things to keep in mind as you begin to search for siding. Obviously, you want something that fits your home’s style.
So this makes the design an essential element.
Another factor is durability. You should choose siding that will stand up to heavy springtime winds, summer heat, and blowing snows of winter, right?
Should homeowners also pay attention to siding’s sustainability?
A: Of course! You have to consider how much time and energy you have to maintain your siding. For example, dirt and mold can build up on any type of siding over time.
Pets can ruin your wood siding, which means it should be treated around every three years.
Can you tell us more about siding replacement in warm climates vs. cold climates?
A: I would start with vinyl siding as one of the most popular choices.
There are some installation factors with vinyl that you have to take into account.
For example, scorching hot or freezing cold days aren’t optimal for installing vinyl, as it is sensitive to high and low temperatures.
Moderate temperatures are the most optimal for installing vinyl siding, which means the optimal seasons are spring, early, or late summer and fall.
What are the benefits of siding installation in the winter?
A: There are definitely many benefits. I think one of the more important advantages is that contractors are not so busy. This would mean that they will be strictly focused on your project and will be completed as soon as possible.
Also, exterior projects can take a toll on landscaping, but in the winter when everything is dormant, that’s much less of a worry, particularly with your lawn.
What are the disadvantages of siding installations in the winter?
A: As I mentioned before, extreme cold is not the best time to install vinyl siding.
Vinyl is brittle in the freezing weather, which means it is more likely to crack when being nailed down. If you have decided to go ahead with the project during the cold, you might run into an issue where a panel is cracked, which means it can’t be replaced and must be reordered, which can put a hold on your project while you wait for it to be delivered.
Which siding material stands up to winter weather the best?
А: Hmm… I think that any siding material will protect your home and keep you warm during the winter. After all, that is the main purpose of siding.
What about summertime?
A: Autumn and spring are the busiest seasons for siding contractors. For this reason, summer can be one of the preferred times to schedule siding installation.
Which types of home siding are best for the hot climate?
A: Any type of siding will do just well. Siding plays a very important role in protecting your home from the hot summer days. The best option will be to talk to your local trusted siding contractor and have them walk you through the options.
