Replacing Your Windows? Consider New Siding to Complete the Fresh Look

If you’ve decided to replace your old windows, it may be time to replace your siding as well–and for some of the same reasons.   This is especially true if your old windows and siding are wood. 

If your old windows have deteriorated, chances are your siding has, too, if it’s about the same age.  And if your siding doesn’t look as good as it once did, it probably isn’t performing as well either.   Old wooden window frames deteriorate due to the frequent and often drastic shifts in temperature and humidity we experience here in Minnesota.  Wood expands and contracts, and eventually warps, resulting in air and water leaks around the frame.  Water leaks can mean further deterioration of your window frames as well as the surrounding structure itself.  Drafty windows translate into higher energy costs and uncomfortable rooms. Add in the fact that most older siding products were not insulated, and you’re probably spending more on heating and cooling than you need to.   The same thing can happen with old siding products, especially those installed with overlapping seams instead of today’s preferred seamless or tightly-abutting, sealed seam installation methods.  If moisture is intruding behind your siding, your siding may not be all that is deteriorating–the underlying structure could be suffering damage as well.   

Are you replacing your old windows because you’re spending too much time on maintenance and upkeep?  You may be doing the same thing with your siding.   Today’s maintenance-free siding products can add fresh and enduring beauty to your home while eliminating the need (and expense) for periodic repainting.  In addition to the wide variety of premium replacement window lines which we offer, Window Outfitters also sells and installs such top-quality siding products as fire-resistant cement fiberboard from James Hardie.  If you’re picking the best windows for our Minnesota climate, why not pick this siding product which was engineered to withstand severe Midwest weather?  Other siding products are also available, including insulated vinyl Craneboard siding from Crane and the new Apex Ultrex fiberglass siding from Marvin.
