Replacing your home’s siding in the winter may not feel like an obvious choice, but there are advantages to doing exterior home renovations in the off-season. When you have the right product and a great installation team, there are numerous benefits to replacing your siding during the winter.
Stop problems in their tracks
If you find problems – cracks, missing pieces, or discoloration – you need to get them assessed fast. If moisture seeps under your siding, it can cause further costly damage to your home’s exterior. Cold temperatures will also exacerbate existing issues. With a material like wood, water that permeates gaps will freeze in cold weather, expanding cracks and aggravating damage.
Get a convenient installation time
When companies aren’t as busy, it is easier for them to schedule your installation process for a time period that is most convenient for you. Scheduling the job far enough in advance when siding crew schedules are more flexible can help you schedule the best and most convenient install time, and in some cases, get you a discount.
Keep the heat inside your home
This is a great perk to getting your siding replaced during the winter months. Your investment in new siding can pay off quickly. New siding can more effectively keep heat inside, and it’s reasonable to expect your energy bills to be lower than they would be otherwise. You can still get the benefits of added insulation for part of the season when the temperature drops, which will roll over into your spring energy bills, giving you the full benefits of your new siding’s energy-saving properties.
Increase your home’s value and curb appeal
Not only will new siding bring about some short-term benefits, there are also long-term benefits. For instance, new quality siding will increase the overall value of your home and its curb appeal. Replacing siding is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of your home’s exterior.
No need to worry about landscaping
In the winter, the installation crew doesn’t need to worry about working around landscaping. Whereas in warmer months, they have to take extra precautions to ensure they do not flatten bushes or hedges around the outside of the home during the siding installation process. Clean up is also easier when workers can easily see debris on the ground that is not hidden by landscaping.
Kids won’t get injured
In addition, homeowners might benefit from their kids being at school during a majority of the remodeling process This means the kids won’t be around to play with or inspect the various tools, machines, and scaffolding in use as they might during the summer when they’re out of school.
