It’s a common roofer and siding installation rule of thumb to put off any repair or installation jobs during the winter. There are plenty of reasons for this, including but not limited to the fact that it’s more difficult to move around outside in the cold and wet, or the fact that some materials expand in the heat.
These all seem like sound reasons to avoid them, but there are also some fairly good reasons to conduct a siding replacement during this season. Here are a few of them.
- Emergency Repairs– This is probably the most obvious reason to call in a siding and roofing company during the winter. Sometimes, accidents happen and parts of your home will need to be repaired or replaced. It’s no different with your siding; if for some reason an accident manages to damage your home’s exterior, there’s no better time to call in a siding expert than during the winter because of the following reason.
- Less Competition– There’s less competition for the contractor’s attention. Whereas at any other time you may need to deal with a contractor with a full schedule, they generally tend to have more time on their hands during the winter months. So if you want to get your siding installed at your own pace, then this is undoubtedly the best time to get it done.
- You Can Improve Your Energy Consumption– In addition to getting an installer to conduct your siding installation at your own pace, you can also improve your home’s energy efficiency with new, better siding. Your home’s exterior goes a long way into keeping the heat within your home from escaping outside, so old and faulty siding can lead to heat sinks that might actually be cooling down your home. Getting a new siding installed can fix that.
