Advantages to Replacing Your Siding in the Winter

November 4, 2020

Snow and freezing weather are right around the corner and updating your siding is one sure way to keep your home warm and cozy during cold weather. As siding ages, it becomes less energy-efficient, allowing more drafts and cold air to seep in. Now is a perfect time to have your siding inspected by a technician from Dick’s Roof Repair.  

Our team members are trained to look for:

  • damaged or cracked siding
  • siding that is extremely faded in color or blistering in spots
  • siding that is bulging 

Once the inspection is complete, our specialists can offer their suggestions and discuss repairing or replacing with you. These days, there are a variety of options and materials, depending upon the size of your home and your budget.

Replacing your siding can help you achieve a more durable exterior that can withstand harsh winter weather and can also require less maintenance and cleaning.

There are five great reasons to replace your siding in the colder months:

  1. Convenience. Traditionally, many roofing/siding companies are less busy in the winter months. This means you might be able to schedule your home’s upgrade easier.
  2. Upkeep. Modern vinyl siding is manufactured to require less maintenance. It is engineered to handle severe cold, wind and precipitation. This means your home will be protected from harsh wintertime weather.
  3. The yard. Wintertime installation means crews can be less worried about working around landscaping. Our crews are always respectful and careful of your home and yard, but it is easier to not have to work around plants and flowers.
  4. Warmth. Old siding, with cracks and other damage, lacks efficiency and that leads to a colder home and higher heating bills.
  5. Curb appeal. Updating the look of your home with new siding will increase your home’s curb appeal and thus increase its potential resale value. It is a great return on your investment. There are a variety of options and colors to choose from.

Many customers are choosing colors that are brand new to the market and add a pop of color to their home. Popular collections from Mastic Vinyl Siding include Carvedwood Premium Dark colors and Carvedwood Solar Defense Premium colors, as well as their cedar discovery shake and shingle siding. As a bonus, homeowners can use an online tool to view different color options and see what they like best. PlyGem offers a home exterior visualizer tool. Siding and shingle manufacturers are both thinking outside the box. If you’d like to take a virtual tour to see how a certain roof color might look on your home, we are big fans of Owens Corning’s visualizer platform. It’s an easy way to scroll through some of the latest color options before making a final decision. The Artisan series of shingles by Owens Corning, for instance, includes a variety of designer colors, including the 2018 Color of the Year, black sable.
