Can I Replace My Windows & Siding At The Same Time?

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 To Replace Windows & Siding At The Same Time

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 new windows and siding labor costs by not having this work performed twice. 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.

Windows & Siding Replacement Are Installed 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.

Window & Siding Installation Reviews:

"The Lindus crew that worked on my house was great! We had our large house re-sided, new brick, soffit and fascia, and gutters. They provided status updates, answered my questions, and provided great recommendations when we ran into the inevitable hiccup of replacing old with new. Their quality control process is above and beyond anything I have ever experienced which left me with an amazing end result in which I felt 100% confident in the lasting power."
