What are the Benefits of Combining Exterior Remodeling Projects?

Table of Contents

Exterior remodeling projects are a considerable investment, and most homeowners want to make them as cost-effective and stress-free as possible.

Combining projects has several benefits if you have the budget for it. For example, windows and siding are a great combination to replace together.

Doing remodeling projects together can save you money and time and increase the performance of the products. We recommend it and can help build a project based on your wants, needs, and budget.

You Can Save Money By Combining Exterior Remodeling Projects

Having an installation team on site is expensive, so doubling up on projects means you get more bang for your buck. We only have to set up once and only need one dumpster delivered.

Exterior remodels are a significant investment, and delaying them can be expensive—labor and material costs increase, not to mention the price of a second setup.

At Hawthorn, we offer financing options because we understand that you may not be able to afford a combined project right now, but you can’t afford to wait, either.

We are also happy to design a project that meets your needs, protects your home, and fits within your budget.

Combining Exterior Remodeling Projects is More Convenient and Effective

When you combine exterior remodeling projects, you have the opportunity to create a system that is secure, effective, and weathertight. You can also fix problem areas simultaneously before they impact other areas of your home.

For example, you can install new windows to be air and watertight before putting on new siding. This creates a fabulous building “envelope” that protects your home against water and air infiltration.

Having a team working at your home can be disruptive, but by combining projects, you can cut down on the amount of time you are inconvenienced. Our crews respect your space, but a home renovation can be loud and messy, despite our best efforts. Sometimes taking the plunge and combining projects is the best option for a quick and beautiful result.

You can also change design aspects by updating more than one area at a time. This can give your home a whole new look.

What Exterior Remodeling Projects are Good to Combine?

Windows and siding are a fantastic combination if you want to work on multiple areas of your home. When we take off the siding, we can remove the old windows.

This is an opportunity to:

  • Check for moisture damage.
  • Install new construction windows or windows with a nailing flange.
  • Seal the frame with metal flashing tape before the siding goes on.

Most window replacements are pocket frames. This involves removing the old window sash but leaving the frame. A new window is then placed inside the old frame. This process doesn’t damage the siding or trim but also doesn’t allow you to see underlying damage.

A full window replacement involves removing everything, including the frame, and installing a brand-new window system. This requires more construction, which is why it works perfectly if you replace your siding. A full window replacement also offers better performance gains and allows you to change the window shape or design.
