Improve the Look and Value of Your Home With Replacement Siding

May, 2014 by

If you are like most people you spend a lot of time making small improvements to your home. These little changes include things like painting the exterior, cleaning the bricks or any other little project that can help to maintain the value of the property. Another excellent option for improving you home is replacement Siding. Replacing or restoring the siding of your home can actually do more than protect the home’s value. It can also make the house look great and protect it’s occupants and their possessions from the elements. The latter can be very important when the weather seems to have sided against you.

Siding comes in various types and styles and which you choose will depend on the property, any pertinent local ordinances and your budget. For instance, vinyl siding is definitely one of the most cost effective options for many people because they can usually find a package deal to fit their budget. However, vinyl generally has a distinctive look and some areas require that homes use specific materials or styles on the exterior of the building.

Wood is the most commonly preferred material for home siding which may be due to how easy this material is to work with. However, wood siding may be the number one choice simply because folks love the way it looks on their home. Wood siding provides almost any home with a classic style and it will generally fit into any neighborhood with the exception of Mediterranean styled homes. The only real disadvantage to wood siding is the requirement of painting it so that moisture doesn’t make it rot too quickly.

An excellent alternative to wood siding is modern fiber-cement planks. This product gives the home that warm, classic wood look without the need to harvest trees for the required materials. Fiber-cement planks also serve another purpose, they give the home an additional insulating factor which can be very useful in extreme weather conditions. Plus, the siding tends to wear well with little breakage unless it gets abused. Like wood siding, fiber-cement siding will need to be painted, but that painting is less frequent and can last for years.
