1. Fall is the Perfect Temperature for New Siding


An important feature of siding is its ability to withstand wide variations of weather. When applying it however, there are some key things that make fall the right time for this project. During the winter, the temperature drops and that causes the vinyl siding to stiffen up- making it incredibly difficult to manipulate. Conversely, when the summertime heat hits, vinyl expands, making it nearly impossible to estimate the correct amount of siding a project needs. When applied during the winter, it will expand in the summer, possibly leaving gaps, holes, or bare spots in the exterior of our home. The fall season provides a shelter from the spring showers, hot and cold months of summer and winter, making it ideal for a new siding project.

2. Siding Materials are More Affordable


The most popular time to do home construction is during summer or spring. This leaves a lot of supplies in the store that need to be used or moved in order to make room for more seasonal products. If a store needs to lessen its supply of siding, it will be more prone to give discounts, which is a win-win for both sides. By adding new siding to your home during the off peak months, not only do you save money on siding but...

3. Contractors are More Cost Efficient


During the summer, the hot temperature only allows workers so long before they need to retreat indoors or into some shade to recover. This stopping increases the amount of time needed to complete the siding project, which also increases cost. By choosing to do this project during a slower season that is also cooler, contractors can work all day and really focus on your project. 
 

4. Winter is Coming


It won't be Game of Thrones harsh, but the cold weather can wreak havoc on a home's heating bill- especially if the siding needs replaced. Old siding can have warps, gaps, or holes that allow heat to escape the dwelling, and that means higher heating costs during the winter. Siding itself doesn't provide a lot of insulation. However, when it's off, you'll have the opportunity to add additional protection to your home, insuring minimum heat loss.


5. No Distractions


During the summer months, the kids are home, stress is supposed to be low, and at-home distractions are at an all time high. Face it, construction crews and cluttered child-filled work environments don't mix. During the fall months, the kids are at school, leaving the entire work day open and available. This is premium time for the crew to come in and replace the siding without any distractions, safety concerns or interruption.
