Are you thinking about your next home improvement project, specifically replacing your siding? Spring is the right season to transform your home and showcase new windows. Why spring you may ask? It’s the best season for remodels, starting fresh, pressing the reset button, and bringing new life to an outdated space. Still, there is more to getting a siding replacement in spring. Let’s check out some common reasons why spring is a great time for your window replacement project.
Siding Installation Easier in the Spring
Spring is the ideal season for your siding replacement job because of the moderate weather conditions. It’s the right amount of heat and coolness, which makes for a comfortable work environment for contractors to work. Spring is the sweet spot between the extreme heat and extreme cold, which are tough conditions for installing siding, which may expand or contract. This can create a new set of problems during the installation process. Sealants and caulk, for instance, tend to take a longer time to adhere and harden during cold weather conditions. There’s a level of predictability to spring weather, which allows for better management of the siding replacement project.
One of the benefits of siding is to provide insulation and as such, it boosts energy efficiency for the upcoming seasons. The potential result is lower electricity bills during the summer and winter when you need your home’s insulation to perform at its best. Let’s say last winter’s energy bill was a bit high, you may find that your siding has outlived its usefulness in providing proper insulation, contributing to increased energy costs. If proper insulation is compromised because of old inefficient siding, the result could be high energy costs as well. Replacement siding this spring can improve insulation and reduce costs.
Spring Safer for Siding Replacement Project
Weather conditions can impact a siding replacement installation project, and the sweltering heat of summer and frigid temperatures of winter can be extreme for even the best siding contractor. Winter has snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain, and many slip-and-fall accidents occur during this season. Summer can bring unbearable heat and exposure can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke. Spring, on the other hand, lacks extreme conditions that can make for an unsafe work environment for performing a siding replacement. Spring conditions are temperate where the heat and cold are minimal and contractors have fewer worries about weather-related safety, and as a result, fewer project delays. The work can be completed faster.
