Pros of Vinyl Siding Installation in Winter

Stress-free Installation

Assuming the weather is reasonable, it makes the most sense to book the installation in winter because contractors are more like to be available. They’re usually overscheduled during spring and summer, so there’s a better chance that installation can be more efficient and inexpensive in November and December.

Cheaper Rates

As expected, contractors see a large dropoff in clients when winter sets in. That’s why vinyl siding installation can be relatively cheap compared to other seasons. If you’re one of many people who postponed their siding project due to high costs, winter might be the perfect time to get this done at a reasonable price.

Summer Heat Affects Siding

Vinyl siding expands in the heat, so if it’s installed in hot weather and nailed in too tight, it could buckle. Fall and early winter provide the ideal temperatures for vinyl siding installation and ensure minimal problems as each winter passes.

Cons of Installing Vinyl Siding in Winter

Cold Weather

Chilly weather makes installation frustrating because the colder it gets, the easier the vinyl will crack. Putting in the siding in temperatures lower than 40 degrees increases the chances of cracking and buckling. Some homes avoid any damage, but too many issues can occur during installation, so it’s not recommended.

Longer Completion Time

If you live in a warm-weather state, any season is ideal for installing siding. However, those in the Northeast endure harsher climates in the winter, lengthening the process. Typically, siding is placed on a home’s exterior sections at a time to minimize cold air entering and damaging the side of the house. Combine this with extreme weather, and the installation could eventually stretch into a two-month project.
