As with any home improvement project, getting new siding for your house can be exciting and possibly a bit overwhelming. This is the perfect opportunity to get exactly what you want for the exterior of your home. Because you want the very best results, your remodeling project should not be started without taking some things into careful consideration.
Why Replace the Siding at All
Not sure if the siding actually needs to be replaced? Some sure signs to watch out for would include:
- Warped, rotted, loose or cracked siding
- Severe fading
- Holes or bubbling on the exterior
- Loose wallpaper or peeling paint on the interior walls
- Increased energy bills
- Heavy winds or hail have left storm damage to the siding
What Material Should You Use
Which material you choose for the exterior of your home is a personal decision based on a few factors. Cost, durability, maintenance requirements and overall appearance can all determine which siding is right for you. For example, vinyl siding is a low-cost option that is easily maintained and is typically available in a variety of colors. Some people may prefer the look of wood siding, which is also a good noise barrier and insulates a home well. However, it is a more expensive option and does require more maintenance and can be attractive to some insects. It is a good idea to compare the features of each and determine which factors are most important to you before deciding.
Does Color Matter
Siding covers the entire exterior of your house, so choosing the right color can make a big difference in the curb appeal of the home as well as the resale value. Exterior color is a great way to express your personal preference and accent the style of your home. However, you want to make sure it stays with the general look and feel of your neighborhood and that you abide by any association requirements.
Who Should You Hire to Replace the Siding
Your siding is your home’s first line of defense against the elements so you should hire a company that you can trust to do the job right. Siding that is improperly installed can leave your home vulnerable to wind or hail damage and can end up costing you a lot of wasted money in heating and cooling bills.
