Tips for Siding Replacement

When people drive through a neighborhood or past a home, the first thing they notice is the siding. The siding of your home plays an important role in keeping you protected from Mother Nature’s harsh elements. Over time, your home’s siding will begin to break down after taking on a lot of wear and tear, eventually leading to replacement or proper maintenance. As a homeowner, it’s important to notice when it’s time for new siding and which materials will be best for your home. Continue reading our blog for some helpful information on and tips for siding replacement.

The importance of your home’s siding

The siding of your home plays a central role in keeping you protected from harsh elements such as snow, rain, strong winds, and hail. Due to these natural elements, the siding ensures that you and your family are comfortable by having the proper insulation needed to withstand this weather. Siding will also effectively seal your home’s exterior and keep pests, insects, and any other unwanted guests out of your home. Most importantly, good siding will increase your home’s curb appeal and its value. A beautiful home will lead to a higher asking price.

Signs you should replace your siding

There are several factors that can go into why you need to replace your home’s siding, like the type of material, quality of the installation, how often you maintained it, and the climate. Here are a few signs to look for to determine if it is time for a replacement:

  • Cracks that are noticeable
  • Fungus and mold
  • Your utility bill is high
  • Siding is beginning to fade
  • Bubbling
  • Rotting

Different types of siding materials

When deciding on a siding for your home, it is important to know which type of siding material is best for you and has the most curb appeal. Typically, there are four common siding materials: wood, metal, vinyl, and fiber cement. Wood siding is a more classical material and used to be the go-to option for most homes. Metal siding is normally made of steel and aluminum, requires little maintenance, and is durable for many years. Vinyl siding is the most affordable and durable while requiring very little maintenance. Fiber cement siding is long lasting and has low-maintenance needs.
