If you’re taking the time to replace your home’s roofing or siding, are you done with the renovations that you need to have happen now? This is often a very convenient time for homeowners to consider replacing their windows at the same time. Why? Roofing, even when accomplished by a careful crew, has some risks to your windows. Replacing siding makes window replacement easier. Here’s a look at why you should consider replacing your windows at the same time that you have other work done.
While You’re Roofing or Siding, Have You Considered Replacement Windows?
Window technology has continued to advance over the decades, getting better over the years. Originally, single-pane windows were used for centuries. A number of techniques were used to help create a better seal, then a second layer of glass was added in the form of a storm window. Within the past few decades, the two layers were brought together into a single window structure, with an air space between them. This space was later filled with various gasses that had specific thermal insulative properties. Most recently, the glass has had special films added to them, reflecting heat into or away from the building.
Replacing Your Windows at the Same Time as the Roof or Siding Can Save You Money
When you have contractors already working on your home, replacing your windows at the same time makes the entire process less costly. Because the contractors are already out at your home, they don’t need to charge you for a separate trip or project. If your siding is coming off to be replaced, it greatly reduces the amount of work required when the windows are replaced, because the process is very similar. If you’re having your roofing replaced, changing out your windows at the same time also helps ensure that you don’t need to worry as much about potential damage that can happen from even the most careful contractors. Improved windows mean you’ll have better sound and thermal insulation at home.

When your home’s exterior needs to have an update to its appearance, replacing the siding can be a great way to make a change quickly and inexpensively. Developed in a wide range of options than have ever been available in the past, you can now use vinyl siding to reflect a wide range of architectural styles and appearances. Here’s a quick look at what options you have available and how the process works.
Update Your Home’s Appearance with Quality Vinyl Siding
Let’s start by talking about the many different styles that are now available. Unlike the simple clapboards of the past, you can now get vinyl siding in styles including shakes, batten board and chamfer board, opening up a whole new world of possiblities. A wide range of colors are available from most manufacturers, including rich browns, cool blues and vibrant reds.
Unlike past versions of the product, today’s vinyl siding has a range of UV inhibitors, which prevents fading and oxidation. This means that your house will look just as fabulous five years from now as it does today. This also makes it very easy to replace a damaged piece of siding without having it stand out with a deeper color than the surrounding vinyl. Foam-backed siding options provide you with a small increase in your home’s R-value, while standing up better to impacts from balls, shoes or whatever nature will throw at it.
Learn More About the Siding Installation Process
The installation process is fairly simple. A guide piece is
placed on one end of the installation, then the siding is snapped into place.
Once a row is entirely secured at the edge, it’s then nailed down securely into
your home’s exterior wall. The next piece is snapped into that one, and this
process continues until your home’s new siding is completely installed.
