Should you Replace Your Siding and Windows Together?

With home renovation projects, some do everything at once and some stagger their projects. But when it comes to windows and siding, should you do both at the same time? Although you don’t necessarily have to do both at the same time, there are benefits to tackling both projects all at once.


Maintenance & Care


Replacing your windows and siding concurrently gives your contractor the opportunity to set the capping around the window before installing the siding. Window capping is a key process since the framing directs water away from the frame and the interior of your home. This helps avoid leaks and can end up saving you money in the long-term.


Superior Aesthetics


When you choose to complete your siding and window projects at the same time, it makes it easier to coordinate the two for a superior aesthetic. Coordinating the design and appearance of your windows and siding together gives you more combinations to choose from. Instead of trying to match limited new siding options that work with existing windows, you can choose the perfect combination right away from a wide array of both windows and siding.


Less Disruption


When you have both damaged siding and old windows, your home is going to be less effectively cooled and heated, which should make both projects a priority, especially in the fall or spring. Both projects require quite a bit of work and coordination, so it makes sense to get both done at the same time if you don’t want to deal with that type of disruption to your home and normal life twice.


The good news is that you can still get both jobs done separately to save money if that’s what works best for you. But you should prioritize windows in that case, so your renovation team doesn’t have to cut into new siding to replace your windows when the time comes.
