Why You Should Replace Siding and Windows at the Same Time

If you’re thinking about giving your home a great upgrade with new windows, that can be a great time to do a total makeover with new siding, too. It will make the aesthetics of your home flow together and soon, it will look fresh and updated!

Did you know we can help with your siding and window replacements? Replacing your windows and siding at the same time will allow us to set the capping around the window before we put in the siding. This process helps keep the water away from the frame and the inside of the walls.  Getting the siding first, then installing the windows could end up saving you money later down the road.

Window installations oftentimes require us to cut back portions of the siding. Sometimes, this leads to discovering dry rot, which can be fixed by replacing the siding. Prior to patching the one area of siding, you may wonder if there is dry rot in other places, so it’s oftentimes a better choice to just replace all of the siding at once, rather than pieces at a time. In addition, this issue could mean that there are bigger problems, like rotting boards and leaks inside of your home’s interior, which could lead to high energy costs and even health issues. If this problem is discovered, it is best to take care of it right away in order to avoid further damage down the road.
