Expanding and Contracting Siding

Posted on February 27, 2024

Expanding and Contracting Siding

A typical 12 foot piece of vinyl siding will expand over 5/8″ from winter to summer and will contract when winter rolls around again. While siding can be installed at any time of the year, the ideal temperature to install is 50 degrees F. Installing at other temperatures is simply cutting the siding a bit longer or shorter depending on the weather being colder or warmer than 50 degrees F.
