Any home exterior project can feel like a big undertaking, a large investment of planning, time, and money. That makes it tempting to have it on your to-do list, but keep putting it off. But we say: don’t defer your home siding—or any other home exterior—project! Obviously we are looking forward to working with you on your home exterior design, but there are important reasons for beginning that project now, not later.
If you can see you need new siding, you’ve needed it for awhile.
Often siding damage and deterioration is taking place beneath the surface. If you’ve found broken or rotting siding on your home, chances are, it has been a problem for awhile. You might think, you’ve just found a small soft spot, and now new siding is “on your radar”. But soft wood indicates moisture damage and is a clear sign that you needed new siding yesterday. The same is true for windows. By the time you see warping frames or notice moisture inside your glass panes, your windows have needed replacing for awhile. These are not signals to start planning for exterior renovations! They are the sign that it is time to begin!
Long-term investments save you money in the end.
Often homeowners will put off siding and other home exterior projects because of the cost. Siding replacement and window replacement are big investments! But the good news is that, with this investment now, you’ll start saving money sooner. Siding and window replacement mean future savings with lowered energy costs and less maintenance demands on your wallet and weekends. Our financing programs make the initial investment accessible for our clients, and we can help you anticipate future savings once the job is done. Our sales teams create unique designs for any budget so that you can get the most for your money now, knowing that you’ll save money later too.
Economic issues affect your renovation project.
If the last few years have reminded us of anything, it’s how unpredictable the economy can be—and how directly that impacts the consumer. Between supply chain issues and significant inflation, planning to wait to start your project almost certainly means planning to pay more or planning for a delay due to supply chain shortages. Increased demand and inflation costs mean that, potentially, materials are as cheap right now as they will be. Home construction is always directly impacted by economic fluctuations and supply chain issues, including increased lumber and materials costs and even shortages of many materials essential for an exterior renovation. Forecasting for future discounts might save you money, but it could just as easily mean that you are waiting longer to pay more.
You should love the home you’re in.
When it comes to homeownership, there are always projects to tackle. But you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable in your house—it should feel like home!

It can feel like the home of your dreams now! You should drive down the road and be in love with your home’s design, knowing that when you step inside, you and your loved ones will also feel warm, dry, and secure.
