Should You Replace Your Windows When Installing New Siding?

Feb 17, 2022

Picture of the front of a house with new replacement windows and siding.Siding and windows are two very important components of your home’s exterior. Because these two parts of your home are exposed to the same conditions over the years, they are very likely to need replacing within a few years of each other. Whether you’re planning for a future home improvement project or are about to get started replacing either your siding or your windows, you may be wondering if you should have both your windows and siding installed at the same time. Here, we’ll help you understand why it’s a great idea to replace your windows when installing new siding.

Installing Windows and Siding Together

Your windows and siding work together to provide your home with a durable, protective, and attractive exterior. In particular, replacement windows include a moisture barrier that helps prevent water from entering the home. Ideally, this barrier should be installed behind the siding, making a siding replacement project the ideal time to replace your windows as well. In fact, when you have both projects happening at the same time, your windows will be installed first, followed by the siding. For a highly functional home exterior, replacing your windows and siding at the same time helps ensure that everything can be properly installed.

Consider the Aesthetics of Your Home’s Exterior

From an aesthetic standpoint, installing new windows and house siding at the same time is also ideal. Chances are, both your siding and your windows are a little past their prime at the point when you’re planning a full replacement of either. If your siding is rotting, deteriorating, or missing in places, having brand-new siding installed can have a transformative effect on the appearance of the entire home. However, brand-new siding with outdated windows that are in need of replacement will give your home a mismatched look. Rather than wait a few years to have your windows replaced, which will be problematic for properly installing the moisture barrier and other elements, having your windows replaced at the same time as your siding will contribute to a much more cohesive and attractive appearance.

Choose an Exterior Contractor That Offers Siding & Windows

When it comes to choosing an exterior remodeling contractor to work on a siding replacement project, window installation project, or both at the same time, finding a remodeling company that offers both of these services can make for a much more convenient experience. Rather than having to coordinate between two companies yourself, having one company managing both parts of your exterior renovation project will ensure everything is progressing forward the way it should.
