Replacing Your Windows & Siding Simultaneously

One of our installers recently brought up the fact that there are several ways a homeowner benefits from replacing their windows and siding at the same time.  While this concept makes perfect sense in the construction industry, it’s not something a homeowner may even be aware of as they plan home improvement projects.

Why it’s a Good Idea

Replacing your siding and windows in tandem allows you to achieve the best possible scenario.  It oftentimes saves you money because caulking and sealing window openings & trim and siding joints will only need to happen once.  This saves you in labor costs by not having this work performed twice.  siding Because these two projects are so often done concurrently, it’s fairly easy to find a contractor that can perform both tasks which also saves you by not having to hire two separate companies.  Another way you save by replacing siding and windows simultaneously is in energy costs.

Protecting Your Home if the Work Must Be Performed Separately

If you’ve already had the siding replaced and are now noticing that your windows aren’t as energy efficient as they once were, there are still ways to protect your siding during the removal of the old windows.  One method is to install window trim around current windows when the new siding is installed.  This prevents the new siding from protruding the nailing fins.  This means that when the old windows are removed only the window trims will need to be removed, leaving the siding undisturbed.  Installing window trims with screws, rather than nails, can also minimize damage during the window removal process.

Tell-Tale Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Windows:

  • You hear your windows rattling when it is windy outside
  • You notice your windows develop an icy or frosty glaze inside the window pane
  • You feel your home becomes drafty with cold air in the winter months and warm air in the summer months
  • You see excessive condensation on your windows or they become fogged
  • You have to prop your windows open because they will not stay open on their own

Window & Siding Installation Reviews:

"I had the Marvin windows installed and I'll tell you they're better than Andersen.  The guys who put them in, Tony and Ryan, were excellent.  I'm going to go get some more windows from you as long as Tony and Ryan install them.  I'm very pleased."

"The crews were great to work with. When they had questions about things they never assumed, they asked. Also, they were very open to some small things I wanted them to do. Their craftsmanship is great, and they have very high standards. I would recommend them to anyone."
