So if i had 11 replaced (2 being window well windows) and still have 12 to go I can treat it as a repair??
This makes a difference. Since you did the work before September 27th, you can treat this as a repair and deduct your time-space% of this cost in one year, regardless of the cost.

Tricky question. If you did the work before September 27, 2017 you can treat the new windows as a repair if you replaced less than half of the windows. Since you didn't, you must depreciate them as a home improvement over 39 years using the 50% bonus rule. Same answer for the siding. If you did the work after September 27, 2017 you can treat both expenses as a repair and deduct them in one year.
