Spring Is Siding Season in West Jordan

June has more daylight than any other month, and that means you are more frequently reminded of how your home needs new siding. Now is the best time to schedule siding installation with Capitol Exteriors, because you will get to look at your beautiful new siding all summer long. Plus, the temperatures are perfect in June for siding installation.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is popular across the U.S. because it is an economical siding choice, requires little maintenance and makes homes look beautiful. Additionally, it helps to insulate your home against both heat and cold, so it saves money year-round.

You may read about the effects of heat on vinyl — warping, bending, etc. — but this is not usually a problem in northern Utah. Although our summers here are hot, they do not compare to the stretches of 100-plus-degree-days in New Mexico and Arizona.

Still, it’s not a good idea to install vinyl siding on a day in which temperatures are in the high 90s, since the vinyl can shrink when the temperature comes back down again, possibly causing warping.

Hardie Board Siding

Hardie Board, a top brand of fiber cement siding, is extremely durable. As such, it can be installed in hot weather with no negative side effects. Sometimes cold weather or rain can be an issue if the homeowner has chosen Colorplus Hardie Board, but heat is not a threat.

In fact, Hardie Board now manufactures its siding specifically for different temperature zones. So as a West Jordan resident, your Hardie Board is engineered for our climate here, protecting your home from the heat in summers and the cold in winters.

Wood Shake Siding

Wood shakes should not be installed in the rain or extremely humid conditions, but that is not a frequent issue here in West Jordan. Wood shakes perform well in both the heat and cold, and they look beautiful.

The hot summer sun can impact the longevity of wood shakes, but again, summers in northern Utah are usually not hot enough to damage wood shakes. That is why you see so many stucco homes further south — because that material holds up better than wood or vinyl in extreme heat.

Siding Company Schedules

One of the more pressing issues involving siding installation in summer is the safety of the work crew. Installing siding at a property without shade on a 90-degree-plus day can be risky to the health and safety of the siding installers. That’s why spring is the busy season for siding installation — it’s much easier and safer to install siding on West Jordan homes in the spring.
