Replacing your siding is important for many reasons. Siding that is damaged or worn out lacks energy efficiency and if moisture gets in through cracks or holes, complications with rot or mold can arise. Additionally, siding is important for aesthetic reasons too and preserves the beautiful appearance of your home.
Especially in Colorado, because of the fair amount of rainfall and snow that occurs throughout the year, keeping up on your siding maintenance is important. But did you know that it also matters when you install new siding for your Denver home? Installing siding during the right season can help prevent issues with timing and weather, and ensure that your install is completely correctly.
3 Reasons Why Summer Is a Great Time of Year to Install James Hardie Siding
The benefit of James Hardie siding is that it is heat and moisture resistant. With other siding materials like vinyl, you have to be extremely careful about what kind of weather conditions you operate in during the installation process, because these materials are sensitive to temperature changes. Technically, James Hardie siding can be installed any time of the year. However, there are many benefits to installing fiber cement siding during the summer such as:
1. Safer weather conditions – While fiber cement siding itself is not easily damaged by moisture, the other parts of your home can be, such as the insulation beneath your siding. Leaving this moisture sensitive material exposed to spring rain or winter snow can mean bad news, which is why it’s best done during dry summer weather.
2. On time installation – Bad weather is hazardous to work in, and most companies don’t want to risk an accident or injury to one of their crew members. Installing your siding during the summer decreases the chance that there will be interruptions during the time that your siding is being removed and replaced.
3. Quicker installation – Most siding companies, like ours, are better staffed during the summer than the winter. After all, not many people want to work outdoors in Colorado when it’s only 10 degrees, and who can blame them? During the summer, we have a large crew, and therefore can complete projects in a shorter period of time.
