i am planning on having both vinyl siding and vinyl replacement windows installed in the next 2-3 years. i can't afford to have both done together and am wondering whether there is a preferred sequence of installation?
it seems to me that if i have the windows installed first they need to be placed further out from the wall of the house to take into account the future thickness increase of putting vinyl siding over the original clapboard siding.
if i have the siding installed first i would think the existing window location (effectively indented compared to the siding) would make it harder to frame the siding around the windows.
any guidance would be appreciated.
