What You Need to Know About Vinyl Siding Installation in the Winter, Queens, New York

Winter isn’t generally the most ideal time to dive into big home improvement projects, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be done. In fact, contractors tend to have more availability during the colder months, allowing you to schedule your project easily and get it done in a shorter amount of time.

Replacing your vinyl siding is one task you might think about performing as the temperatures drop, but the siding installation experts at JCHome Roofs and Sidings advise on a few things to keep in mind before you decide to move forward. Based in Fresh Meadows, NY, the company is experienced with working in all kinds of weather, and they know how to correctly put up new siding while taking winter conditions into consideration.

siding installationAn important characteristic of vinyl siding to be aware of is that it expands and contracts along with changes in temperature. Cold weather makes the material contract, while heat makes it expand. Thus, allowances will need to be made for this during your siding installation.

When applying siding in the winter, the material must be cut at a length that leaves enough space for it to expand when the weather warms up. Installers have to be especially careful around window and door casings. In addition, it’s essential to pay attention to how your siding is nailed because there should always be a little room left between the nail and nailing fin that gives the panel the room it needs to move around.

The best way to make sure your siding installation is done accurately in cold weather is to have a reputable company take care of the job for you. If you decide you wish to go ahead with your siding project this winter, call JCHome Roofs and Sidings at (718) 261-1891. You can also visit them online to learn more.
