Summer May Just Be the Best Time to Replace Your SidingJun 15, 2014
When most people think of home improvement and remodeling projects, they think of spring and autumn, but that may be part of why summer could be the perfect time to replace your home’s siding! If you’ve been thinking of replacing your home’s old siding—maybe it’s time for an upgrade to vinyl or polymer siding, or maybe you just don’t like the color—but you’ve been waiting for just the right moment, here are a few reasons why summer might be just what you’ve been looking for:
- Contractors aren’t as busy. Since most people do tend to want home improvement and remodeling projects done during the spring and autumn months, siding contractors aren’t generally as busy during the summer. That means that you’ll have an easier time scheduling your siding replacement without waiting, and it also means that contractors will have more people available to do the work, and can take more time on it, giving you greater flexibility.
- There’s always a good deal to be had. As a result of not being as busy, siding contractors can offer better deals during the summer months. After all, nobody wants to sit around without any work to do, so contractors can often offer better deals during slow seasons than they could when their crews are being kept constantly on the go trying to keep up with demand. What kind of deal you’ll get will vary from contractor to contractor, but it never hurts to ask.
- The weather is more likely to cooperate. Think about it, here in the Midwest, spring and autumn tend to be rainy and, in the latter case, cold. And let’s not even think about Kansas winters! Summer, on the other hand, offers almost perfect weather for siding installation. Sure, the days can be hot, but your local suppliers of siding in Kansas know how to work around the heat. They’ll start on the hot side of the house in the early morning, before things really start to heat up, and by the hot part of the day they’ll be working in the shade.
- The right siding can help save on energy bills. Good polymer siding from Continental Siding will help keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and the sooner you get it installed, the sooner you can start seeing a return on your investment in the form of lower utility bills.
Ultimately, the best reason to replace the siding on your home any time—spring, summer, autumn, or winter—is because it will make your house look better and feel better, improve the resale value, and protect your home against damage.
