Your home’s siding is meant to protect your home from the weather and the elements. But when it needs to be replaced soon, when should you get it done? If you notice your siding is near the end of its lifespan, you’ll still have some time to choose when to invest in a new one. However, if you’re planning a major home makeover after surviving winter or just want to get new siding installed under good weather, then spring is the right time to get it done.
Our siding and roof replacement experts at ARCH Exteriors, LLC explain why you should consider a spring siding installation.
Installing new siding is rarely ideal during the winter season because of the cold temperatures. It is also not recommended during summer because the weather can get too hot at times. And if you’re considering a siding installation when the fall season hits, it might be too late especially if your siding is old and damaged. Spring, on the other hand, has temperatures that average around 50 degrees. Weather is neither too hot nor too cold, making it the most ideal season for a full siding installation.
Potential Winter Damage
Winter can sometimes be unpredictable in how it can inflict damage to your home. For instance, even if it looks intact, your roof might have minor damage sustained from winter storms. This needs to be addressed by a professional roofing contractor to minimize costly repair. The same thing applies to your siding. However, if it suffered extensive damage over the winter, scheduling a replacement this spring would be necessary.
Safer Working Conditions
Unless it’s an emergency, it isn’t recommended to have a siding installation during the winter season because of the weather. The snow and ice can increase the risk of accidents while the siding job is underway, which can lead to more delays and other costs. Summer temperatures, on the other hand, can be unbearable at times because working under the heat of the sun can affect the workers’ productivity. With the moderate spring temperatures, the working conditions are much safer and more manageable.
