Wood Siding Vinyl Windows
[Return to Topics]

Hi All = We have a wood sided house with rotting wood windows. We're ready to go ahead & start replacing the windows with vinyl. We want to keep the wood siding for now, but will eventually go to vinyl siding in about 10 years. The question is - Is there any problem with doing the windows first & then siding later? Or Should you side & do windows at the same time? Thanks.

Vinyl is designed to breathe enough not to hurt wood underneath it. I've torn down houses with vinyl siding and the wood's still okay. As you'll note with vinyl tile on floors tho, it DOES shrink, so pay attention to installation temperatures, leave the end fasteners float and pay attention to overlap requirements.

If your gona put siding on it down the road in a few yrs. get windows with the J channel built in then you dont have to trim out the windows when ya do put siding on and it looks better . Did windows and siding both a few yrs. ago , glad I did and one mess instead of two .

just be careful and don't tear up the wood siding it'll be fine with the vinyl windows.
