Are you giving your home a makeover? Two of your best options include getting new siding panels, and replacing your old windows. However, you’re probably thinking that maybe you should get both at the same time. Is it a good idea? Our siding and roof replacement experts have something to say about the matter.
A Big Task
The greatest challenge that comes with replacing both the windows and the siding at the same time is the amount of time, planning and resources that it takes to get the job done. With two very complicated tasks, there are much bigger risks of things happening such as lapses in planning, running out of funds, or even having to get more work done under a tighter schedule.
While replacing both siding and windows requires more effort, there are some aspects that are easier if they are done simultaneously. For example, because you’re most likely getting windows and siding panels, you’ll have an easier time finding options that look better together. In fact, if you want to guarantee a perfect match, working with a roofer and home exterior expert in one big project is one of the best ways to go about it.
Avoiding Extra Work
Getting new siding first might mean you’ll have to cut into the new siding when you get new windows. If you get windows first, you’ll have to recap your windows a second time. With both done at the same time, you have the chance to make the adjustments before either component is installed so you get to do away with the extra work.
The Right Schedule
Finding the perfect time to get multiple exterior components replaced at the same time. You’d want to schedule around summer or early fall so you don’t have to deal too much with bad weather. If a recent hurricane caused storm damage to your roof and siding, you could use it as the perfect opportunity for a project of this magnitude.
