There’s Plenty of Upsides to Getting New Siding This FallSeptember 14th, 2018
If you’re considering getting new siding, we have great news for you: fall can be the perfect time of year to not only add beauty and character to your home but to add value to it as well. As Bucks County, PA’s premier general contractor, Munz Construction’s early expertise was in siding projects. And we still feature the same level of high-quality materials and expert siding installation services we did back in 1985.
While autumn is synonymous with Halloween, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving, there’s another benefit to the temperature and drier weather. It’s the perfect conditions for installing new siding. Let’s see why now may be the best time to introduce a little style and personality to your home’s exterior.
Beat the Heat
One of the most popular materials for siding is vinyl. And as a product made from plastic, it can react poorly when it’s exposed to high temperatures. Even if it doesn’t fully melt, vinyl will stretch and expand significantly in hot weather. Not only can this cause a considerable length discrepancy when winter comes, but it can also cause it to bump against window casings, buckle, and even fall off.
Avoid the Freeze
A similar approach applies to freezing weather, or once temperatures drop below 50 degrees. Cold weather siding installations can have the opposite problem. When the weather is cold, it can make it easy to nail them on too tight. Additionally, freezing weather can make siding more brittle and likely to break apart, which can lead to broken and wasted materials.
Evade the Moisture
While it may be true that April showers bring May flowers, they also create adverse conditions for professional siding installations. With the constant threat of rain showers, a spring installation can expose your home’s sheathing and walls to rain, moisture, and mold. Instead, an autumn installation offers typically drier conditions that are more advantageous to siding work.
Get Prepped for Winter
Besides all the benefits of installing your siding during fall, it also allows you to protect your interior walls from moisture and greatly reduce the loss of heat. This can keep you more comfortable throughout the cold season and it can help to defray the cost of heating your home through reduced utility bills.
