Your home’s exterior siding plays a vital role in your property’s look and feel. It also keeps your home effectively insulated, so you can’t afford to ignore the siding when it’s showing visible signs of wear and tear.
Below is a look at the top five benefits of new siding.
1. Reduced Maintenance Cost
If you have old siding, you may attempt to mask the outdated appearance by painting the property’s exterior. However, whole-house painting is expensive, and you’ll have to spend more on touch-ups every few years.
Replacing siding around your home is cheaper in the long run. Additionally, quality siding can hold up better than paint after a few years under the impact of weather elements.
2. Improved Aesthetic Appeal
Changing the old siding around your home can instantly improve your home’s curb appeal. With so many siding options to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect products to transform your home.
For example, you can choose luxury vinyl, fiber cement, composite siding, and more. With the siding installed, your home will look very different immediately.
3. Improved Temperature Control
One of the main benefits of new siding is that it will keep conditioned air inside your home.
The siding and the insulation materials added to the exterior walls during the siding installation process work together to improve your home’s energy efficiency. As a result, you’ll notice a drop in your home’s energy costs.
4. Better Protection for Your Home’s Structural Integrity
Old sidings can allow water leaks into your home’s walls, leading to wood rot and water pools around your window sills. The water can even make its way down to your foundation, causing significant damage.
Additionally, water damage can encourage mold growth in your basement, attic, or crawl spaces.
Fortunately, new home siding can protect your home. Some siding materials can withstand up to category five hurricanes, so there is no risk of water entering your home in adverse weather conditions.
However, you need to ensure accurate siding installation for full protection.
5. Higher Property Resale Value
If your home is on the market, new siding can help you get closer to your asking price or even better. New siding makes the property look great on the outside, making it more likely for a prospective buyer to check out your house.
Installing new siding also tells the potential buyer that they have one less maintenance or repair work to worry about due to the low-maintenance nature of the materials. Although painting can deliver similar visual aesthetics, the siding will deliver better results.
In addition, you can recoup up to 90% of the cost of new vinyl siding when you sell your home. So, you increase your chances of landing a good price for your home at a fraction of the installation cost.
