If you’re wondering when you should replace your home’s siding, you’ll find that fall is more than the right time for it to happen. We explain three major reasons behind this below:
Weather Conditions Are Optimal
Like most exterior materials, vinyl siding expands in the heat. Scheduling a siding replacement during summer will mean having the panels stand in the sun during installation. They can be nailed too tightly to your home, and, when the temperature plummets in winter, the stressed siding can warp and crack.
Waiting until winter for your vinyl siding replacement isn’t ideal as well as it becomes stiff and brittle when the weather gets too cold. It’s better when contractors have workable materials, and they can install them at a comfortable temperature.
While most contractors’ rates tend to drop dramatically during winter, some also start to reduce their fees when fall starts. This is one of the most common reasons why spring and summer are the busiest times of year for professional siding contractors, so they tend to charge the most money during those seasons. So, if you plan on having an autumn project done, you may save some money. However, to make sure you’re getting the best fall rate, it’s still advisable to get quotes from all of the contractors you’re considering before you make your final decision.
You’ll Be Ready for Winter
If you have siding that’s cracked, warped or bubbling, it only means it’s not able to protect your home the way it should. These are signs that indicate that they should be replaced as soon as possible. Doing this during the fall season will ensure that you’re prepared for the upcoming winter weather. Not only will your home be better insulated, you won’t have to worry about snow and ice melting and causing water damage.
