Typically, Colorado homeowners turn their attention to their home exteriors in the spring and summer, when we can plan for clear days and warmer weather. But your home exterior matters in the cooler weather too, especially when it comes to efficiently heating your home. At Bellwether, we install siding in all seasons, and there are a few reasons why we especially love siding installation in the fall and winter. We like to keep our crews busy over the colder months but there are also some good reasons for you to consider having your siding replaced now instead of waiting for warmer temperatures.
For Colorado homeowners, we have great home exterior projects weather in any season.
Colorado has great weather year-round. Even during the colder months, we see plenty of sunshine in around Denver, the Front Range, and even into the mountains. Even with snow in the forecast, the sun shines more days than not. This means that we can replace siding throughout the entire year, no matter what month it is.
Temperatures can be ideal to work outside during the cooler months and some of our crew members and technicians prefer winter days over the heat of summer. We take all necessary precautions to work in the cooler weather and keep our team safe.
As an added bonus, most vegetation is dead or dormant in the winter, meaning our team members can move about more freely without worrying about landscaping. While we treat all of your property with an abundance of care, not having to work around freshly-planted flowers and blossoming bushes means we can more easily (and more quickly!) complete your siding replacement project in the winter.
Replacing your siding in the winter means better protection from cold temperatures.
New siding can do a lot for your home in terms of protection. Old and failing siding can cause moisture to leak through, causing substrate damage. Old siding does not protect your home from the elements and harsh weather like new siding will.
Investing in a quality siding product like James Hardie fiber cement siding in the winter means safe-guarding your home against moisture damage from snow and ice, as well as other winter-related elements such as wind and freezing temperatures. Fiber cement siding withstands harsh weather extremely well and looks beautiful. Plus, James Hardie fiber cement siding comes with a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty, meaning your siding will last, whatever season you install it.
Whatever siding material you choose for your wintertime siding replacement, professionally installed siding means improved energy costs and efficiency. Our installation processes include moisture management systems and we can replace windows too, ensuring that your home is warm and dry inside, with water and cold air kept out.
Winter months could mean lower prices for siding and construction materials.
The winter months, especially January and February, are less busy in the home repair and construction world. As demand lessens, so do costs. Some winters, you could save up to 15% on materials costs. For homeowners considering budgets for their siding replacement projects, the wintertime could be an opportunity to save money on high-quality and high-design siding products.
In the Colorado winter, our schedules are more open—meaning shorter completion times for your siding project.
When you have your siding replaced during the winter you can usually expect shorter completion times. Though we forecast and keep our projected timelines in any season, during the busier months of the year you might have to wait several weeks to have a crew come out to replace your siding. Since fall and especially winter are less busy for our team you will see much quicker project start times. We will most likely have fewer projects in the queue and more team members to work on your siding replacement. For you, this means that your project will be completed quicker. You will also be more likely to be able to pick an installation time that is most convenient for you.
Whatever the season, siding replacement will increase your Colorado home value.
New siding drastically increases your home’s value. A well-maintained home with new siding makes it more attractive to potential buyers and will leave a very favorable first impression. But we want you to love the home you live in, improving the value of your home to you! Replacing your siding with new fiber cement siding means designing a home in the style and colors you love, while improving the energy efficiency and comfortability of your interior.
At Bellwether, we’re a four-seasons siding replacement company. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, we are available to install your siding and help you achieve a beautiful, protected home you love.
