Windows or Siding First

Factors to Consider

When deciding whether to replace your windows or siding, you must consider several factors.

  • Damage. Prioritize repairs to windows and siding based on the extent of the damage.

  • Long-Term Savings. Replacing windows and siding can help improve energy efficiency and save money in the long run.

There are several advantages to replacing your windows before siding.

  • New windows can improve your home’s insulation and energy efficiency, reducing heating and cooling costs.
  • Modern windows can enhance the curb appeal and value of your property.
  • You can replace windows first to simplify the siding installation process as the new window’s dimensions need to fit and align with the siding properly.
