If your home needs an upgrade, or if you just want to change the look of your house, changing your siding can drastically alter your home’s appearance. It can be overwhelming to make such a big decision, so we’ve answered a few common questions about siding.
Why Change the Siding?
There are a number of reasons to change the siding on your house. First and foremost, it can enhance the appearance of your house. New siding can make an old or outdated exterior look cleaner and more modern with a more current style. It can also be an investment. By adding new, updated siding, you can also increase the value of your home. If you ever decide to sell the house, you could get a decent chunk of your money back.
Certain types of siding can also improve energy efficiency. Materials like cement and vinyl help keep the indoor temperature regulated, so you won’t spend as much money heating and cooling your home.
What Are the Options?
Vinyl is one of the most popular types of siding, due to low cost and easy maintenance. It’s also versatile, with multiple styles and colors available. For a more traditional look, you can also install wood siding. Wood is durable, but it also requires a fair bit of upkeep. It’s susceptible to insect attacks and you may be required to treat wood paneling with fire resistant chemicals.
Cement board is another low cost and low maintenance option. It’s fire resistant, durable and versatile. Aluminum siding offers protection against salty and humid air, since it doesn’t rot or mold.
