With the warmer weather and longer days, spring is a great time to tackle exterior home improvement projects. By getting rid of your old or storm-damaged siding and replacing it with new, energy-efficient siding, you will be improving your home’s beauty, functionality and weather protection all at once, while living more sustainably too.
Here, we share three reasons spring is the best time for siding replacement.
- Increased Energy Efficiency
The biting cold temperatures of winter months can compel homeowners to crank up the heat. This is a good opportunity to pay close attention to the resulting cooling costs. If they are higher than usual but your windows and doors are not drafty, your siding may no longer be providing proper insulation. When you choose to replace your siding, you will be eliminating any cracks and holes that may have allowed conditioned air to escape.
- Moderate Temperatures
Since siding components tend to expand and contract during extreme temperatures, installing siding when the weather is too cold or too hot can be risky and may lead to a subpar installation. To install vinyl siding, for instance, the ideal temperature is around 50 degrees, making spring the perfect time.
- Minimal Maintenance
A siding replacement is a cost-effective way to protect your home from extreme weather. New siding is easier to take care of after installation. Make sure to choose a material that is resistant to rot, insects and impact.
