It’s that time of the year again when the weather starts to get colder, and the days are getting shorter. For homeowners that are in need of last-minute repairs, replacements, and other improvement projects done to the exterior of their homes, now is the time to make sure that those urgent projects are completed before winter hits.
One of the most important exterior features of any home is its siding, which is especially important during this time of the year. High-quality, efficient siding is critical for keeping a home safe, comfortable, and warm—and for protecting it against the harsh elements and potential energy loss.
If you’re rushing to get last-minute work done on your home, and are in need of new siding before the winter season, now is the time to get it done. In this article, our team at Classic Construction explains why November is such a great time of the year for your Richmond siding installation project, and what to look for when determining whether your current installation needs replacement or not before the holidays are here.
Evaluate Your Siding Products in the Fall
November is a wonderful time of the year for replacing siding products, as the weather
is still mild—not too hot, and not too warm. It’s also a great time to evaluate your home for potential issues and repair needs, including your exterior siding products, in time before the harsher weather conditions roll in.
To determine whether your home’s siding products are in need of replacement, here are a few issues to look out for when examining your home before winter this year:
- Surface Problems: If you see bubbling or peeling paint, that could be evidence that there is a deeper problem brewing underneath your home’s siding. The sooner it’s addressed, the easier it is to fix—so don’t delay in having it checked out by a professional contractor.
- The Warp Factor: Over the years, all exterior products will begin to show wear and tear, however major or minor it may be. However, if your siding is starting to warp or look deformed, it’s likely to need repairs or a full replacement before the rain or snow makes the problem worse.
- Staining: Aside from being unsightly, stains from mildew, water damage, and other sources can indicate a poorly-installed or faulty roof. If you see stains on your siding, contact a professional contractor to determine whether your roof is the problem—and
how to fix it before it deteriorated even further.
- Poor Energy-Efficiency and/or Indoor Climate Comfort: If during the
summer you noticed that your house wasn’t cooling very effectively, it’s possible that the siding of your home might have played a role in your home’s indoor climatization issues. While other factors may contribute to the energy-efficiency of a home, poor siding quality or siding that is in need of repairs can play a large role in keeping a home comfortable (and energy costs down).
‘Tis the Season to Show Off
It’s no secret that the siding on a home can add enormous aesthetic value to its outside appearance. Enhancing your home’s curbside appeal before the busiest and most social time of the year just makes sense—especially for those that love to entertain, or that decorate their home for the holidays.
