Winter Siding Replacement? Why It is a Good Idea
Northeast winters in Pennsylvania and Maryland are unpredictable when it comes to the type of weather and amount of snow and ice that fall. Massive snow, windy days, and extreme chills are all elements we have seen in past winters. And each can take a toll on a home’s exterior. Having quality siding on a home is one of the best ways to keep your home warm all winter long.
Wintertime isn’t the most popular time to replace siding, but there are 5 benefits to replacing siding in the winter.
No need to worry about landscaping
Most homeowners don’t spend countless hours maintaining landscaping throughout the winter because the majority of shrubs, plants, and flowers don’t survive the winter cold. This makes it a great time for contractors to replace siding because they (and you) have less to worry about or look out for during the process.
Siding contractors have more time
During the winter months, contractors slow down and have more available times in their schedule. This makes it easier to schedule a reputable siding contractor to complete the siding removal and installation at a time that is convenient for you.
Increase your home’s curb appeal
Replacing a home’s siding is a great way to improve its curb appeal and increase the property value. This is especially true if the siding is worn out, cracked, or falling off.
Keep warm temperatures indoors
Giving your home a facelift not only makes the house look better from the outside, it also makes it feel better inside. One of the biggest benefits to installing siding on a home is that it keeps the warm temperatures in during the winter and cool temperatures inside during the summer months. Many homeowners experience fewer drafts after new siding is installed.
Ideal temperatures for the siding
While it may not be the ideal temperature for you outside, it is the ideal temperature for the siding. If siding is installed in the middle of summer heat and humidity, it can buckle or warp when nailed to the house. In the cool temperatures of winter, buckling is less likely to occur, making the siding easier to install.
