Replacement Windows and Siding

Replacement windows and siding are two of the most popular exterior home remodeling projects consumers tend to take on in their homes. The combination of the two creates an entirely new look on the home's vertical spaces outside. Homeowners who are getting replacement windows and are concerned about their siding need not worry as long as the window job is being handled by trained professionals. The biggest risk is in the new window installation not being properly flashed in behind the siding to allow for proper water flow up and over the front edge of the window units. But this is not an issue when seasoned pros handle the job.

Installing Replacement Windows in Siding

One of the things we need to know ahead of time is that certain areas of our vinyl siding will need to be removed to allow for the removal of the old window frames and the installation of the new, as this will affect replacement windows prices. This also allows window installers to apply flashing materials and window tape to the top and edges of the unit to make sure it is weather tight and that no water ever gets in the outside wall of the home. After the replacement windows are installed the siding is put back into place, sometimes with minor adjustments to account for slight variations in size, thickness or location left to right or top to bottom of the new windows. Putting everything back into place is the easy part. The most important task on the outside of the home is the weather proofing of each window. When this is done well the home is much more resistant to hard rains and the replacement windows can be expected to last much longer because they will never be compromised by even a trickle of water. So, homeowners who see their window guys removing vinyl siding do not need to be alarmed. It is all part of the job.

Replacement Windows and Siding Jobs

Another closely related thought that sometimes comes up among homeowners who have just gotten replacement window work done relates to those of us who are thinking about getting other remodeling products done on the home's exterior. After the installers made sure the replacement windows and siding were getting along like they were supposed to and that everything overlapped in the proper order to prevent leaks, siders may come in and remove vinyl panels and even window tape and flashing. Some siders prefer to start fresh, bringing their own window tape to the job and flashing everything as they go. There is a very good reason for this.

As a general rule the last construction worker who worked in a particular area usually gets blamed in something goes wrong. And siders who had nothing to do with the previous remodeling work want to make sure the replacement windows and siding they add to the home coexist and keep water out. Hence the application of new window tape, and possibly new felt paper all the way around as well.

The same principle applies here as it did in the other scenario. When replacement windows and siding are in contact with one another, as they will inevitably be in a home that is sided, the key is that their interaction is planned right so that the window fully functions but is also fully weather tight. Any place where vinyl panels have to be suddenly cut off is a potential spot for a leak, and a hole in the wall filled in by a piece of glass is an especially strong candidate. Fortunately in most cases siders are just as knowledgeable as window installers about the right way to water proof the entire area to prevent any water ever getting in, even in a heavy direct rain.

Replacement Windows and Siding Together

Of course, rather than do the one and wait a few years to do the other, the ideal way to do replacement windows and siding is to replace them all at once. This way the entire face of the wall is clear when the window units are installed so that the installers can do perfect jobs water proofing from all sides, and the siders can come in and install metal flashing across the top before they even J channel around the unit.

Replacement windows and siding are two of the most popular exterior home improvement projects, and they are both extremely critical for keeping the outside weather outside. Replacement windows must be done well or vinyl panels can be affected, and likewise siders need to properly work around window units to avoid causing leaks. It's the work of skilled trades people to get this stuff done, but replacement windows and siding can coexist and get along together if their installers do their jobs right.
