Siding isn’t usually the first thing that homeowners think of when it comes to home repairs and remodeling. But it can be just as important to maintain the condition of your siding as it is for your roof because, just like a roof, the siding is on the front lines of protecting the exterior and interior of your home. Here are just three great reasons why you should think about getting new siding.
First of all, new siding can go a long way to boosting your home’s curb appeal. Because vinyl siding can come in a variety of colors, you have a near-endless supply of design choices. You can also opt for some choices in shape, texture, and style of your siding. You can have siding that mimics other materials, like a plank pattern for a classic look, or you can go sleek and modern. The best part is that, unlike a simple paint job, your siding contributes more than just good looks. You will have the durability and no-fade power of vinyl siding that will stay in nice condition for years.
Hidden Structural Issues
There are many house issues that can be left out of sight and out of mind. But unless you had remodeled your home before you moved in, chances are there are hidden issues that have gone unchecked since the house was built. The good thing about replacing your siding is that it gives you the opportunity to have a part of your house you never see inspected. The framing of your home, a network of beams that hold up your walls, can suffer from water damage without properly insulated siding. Having your siding replaced will expose these problems to be fixed, and the new siding will prevent the same issues from coming up again.
Better Energy Efficiency
Speaking of insulation, that is a large part of what affects your energy bill. While your home has its own insulation built into the walls, the siding acts as a seal between the exterior walls and the outside. Old, cracked, and leaky siding can all but render the insulation useless. That means you could be spending far more on heating and cooling than you should because of an inefficiently insulated house. Replacing old siding might seem expensive and unnecessary to some people, but the truth is that it makes your entire house function much better, which will be reflected in lower energy bills.
