If you’re in the market for siding, then you will definitely want to at least consider replacing your windows at the same time. Here’s why…
With a tight budget, you may feel that only one upgrade is possible, but choosing both of these upgrades at once can save you time and money.
Depending on how many windows you need to replace, getting all your windows replaced is typically less expensive than replacing entire siding on your home, so it might make sense to replace the windows before tackling an expensive siding project. However, when you have your windows and siding installed by the same contractor, you can save big on installation. So it’s more affordable to install new windows and siding at the same time than to do them separately.
Window and siding replacement is a process that can help extend your home’s longevity, eliminating the possibility of water damage and leaks. Window wrapping is one step involved in this process. It refers to a construction method where a thin sheet of aluminum or vinyl is wrapped around the exterior frames of your windows. Window wrapping is often used on windows that are outdated, have bad seals, or are in need of replacement. One of the largest benefits of window wrapping is moisture reduction. The barrier effect it provides can help prevent and reduce water seepage into your home, which can be a major source of damage. This protection can extend the life of your siding as well as your windows. Window wrapping and siding replacement are 2 projects that should ideally be tackled together to ensure the best results.
Although it will cost you more to have windows & siding done together, it will cost less than if they were done separately. If that’s not an option for you at this time replace your home windows first, and down the line replace your siding.
Why windows first and not siding?
By getting new replacement windows first, you'll prevent potential damage to your new siding later. To install windows, your contractor has to install a moisture barrier that goes around the window and that barrier needs to go behind the siding as well. That means the contractor might have to cut into your new siding to do that or remove the siding and reinstall it after, which adds to the cost of the project.
Siding and windows make an impact on the entire home. They protect the interior from weather damage and improve the curb appeal of a property, which can add to its resale value.
