Replacing your home’s siding improves curb appeal and ramps up protection against the elements. Though it’s something you can do all year round, there’s probably no better time to do it than during the fall. Here’s why.
In some parts of the country, the winter is too cold to install siding because the material is too rigid. On the other hand, in hot weather, it will expand almost 40% more. This poses problems with the siding that surrounds windows and door casings. This makes fall the perfect weather for the job since it’s not too hot or too cold.
Fall also provides a break from spring showers, summer monsoons and winter sleet. All these could lead to mold and mildew problems. Also, having materials on the jobsite exposed to the elements can harm their integrity. Fall’s dry season can be an ideal time to replace exterior cladding.
Many people do home repair projects in the spring or early summer. By the fall, stores are trying to make room for seasonal stuff like Christmas trees and decor. They will most likely lower prices on siding to make room for these items. Furthermore, after one year, there may be new and improved products on the market. So, suppliers don’t want to keep old inventory still lying around.
More Focus on Your Own Project
In fall, workers can spend more time outdoors before they either freeze in winter or burn up in summer. The fall weather is perfect, and workers can stay out there all day. In spring and summer, there’s a high demand for outdoor remodeling projects. As such, the fall tends to be a less chaotic season for contractors. Your contractor can focus more on your project.
