Doing two or more concurrent home improvements offers many advantages, like shorter overall installation time and potential savings on labor. In today’s post, the siding installers at Austin Pro Siding, Windows & Roofing discuss the benefits of having two such projects — window and siding replacement — done together.
Trim and capping are the components that cover the area between the wall opening and window frame, creating a finished look. They also protect the gap from air and moisture infiltration. During window replacement, a window installer might have to cut into the siding to install trim and capping, which presents some risks. In the hands of an inexperienced window installer, the siding may end up with exposed sections due to improper cutting. It may also affect the warranty coverage on the siding. Having the windows and siding replaced concurrently can result in a cleaner installation.
You’ll Only Need to Work With One Contractor
Finding a contractor for one project can take a lot of work. You have to come up with a list of siding companies in the area, compare their credentials, then call their references. You’ll also have to spend time comparing quotations before committing to a project. Replacing your windows in a separate project means you’d be doing the same thing all over again. On the other hand, having your windows and siding replaced at the same time means you’ll only have to look for a contractor once.
Potentially Lower Overall Cost
It goes without saying that the upfront cost will be much higher than either project’s. However, the overall cost may actually be lower compared to hiring separate contractors for each project and having them done on separate occasions. Contractors with financing options can make it easier for you to have two or more home improvements done at the same time. We at Austin Pro Siding, Windows & Roofing offer flexible financing options from GreenSky.
