Vinyl and fiber cement siding are very popular choices for home exteriors due to their easy maintenance, durability, energy efficiency, and the almost endless array of color and design options. You may think that the best time to replace or install siding on your home is whenever you are ready, but there are a few reasons why fall is the best season for vinyl siding installation.
Moderate Fall Weather Means Smoother Installation
Like many manufactured and natural materials, siding reacts to temperature extremesby expanding and contracting, which could affect the quality of your installation. Summer heat can cause your siding to expand while cold weather makes it more brittle and causes the panels to contract. Spring showers mean your home’s sheathing could become exposed to moisture, leading to mold and mildew. Georgia’s moderate fall weather (dry, around 50 degrees Fahrenheit) provides ideal conditions for siding installation.
Prepare Your Home for Winter
Siding is an essential component of your home’s energy envelope.By installing new or replacement home siding in the fall you will prepare your home’s envelope to save energy and provide greater comfort during the upcoming winter season and throughout the rest of the year. Your siding contractor will also be able to identify and repair any gaps or holes in your home’s exterior which may be letting in drafts and cold air during the winter, decreasing your home’s energy efficiency.
Possibly Lower Prices on Product and Labor
The spring and summer seasons are often the busiest times of year for home exterior contractors, meaning less special deals on labor or convenient scheduling opportunities for you. Also, siding manufacturers may to offer lower pricing on some of their inventory in order to make room for new styles and products. This isn’t always the case but it is always worth researching.
