Other Home Improvement Projects
If you’re thinking of getting replacement windows, too, you might want to do this at the same time you’re installing new siding. These two projects are often done at the same time. However, of course, completing these projects in one go will cost you a lot of money. If your current budget can’t pay for both jobs, it might be better to take care of the windows first.
