If you’re planning to replace your siding, it’s important to consider timing. Vinyl siding, for instance, is sensitive to temperature extremes so installing it in the winter or the summer could impact the quality of installation.
If you have chosen to install vinyl siding, avoid doing it in the summer as high temperatures can cause the material to expand and stretch a bit. This can result in size difference, and your siding may later on start bumping against your window casings. The siding will likely buckle and eventually fall off.
Cold weather can cause vinyl siding panels to contract. This makes it easier for your siding installer to nail the panels too tight, which can cause problems down the road. Freezing temperatures also tend to make vinyl more brittle,so there’s an added risk of cracking or breaking.
Spring can be a troublesome time for siding replacement, too. Sudden rainstorms may occur, exposing your home’s sheathing and walls to moisture and potential mold growth.
Fall is the perfect time to replace your old siding because it effectively prepares your home for the colder months ahead. You can also enjoy cheaper rates since business is usually slower during this time of the year. With fewer projects coming their way, contractors can also give more attention to your project, assuring you of high-quality installation.
