Siding is a good upgrade for your home. It gives a fresh look to your exteriors and provides additional protection from the elements.
Things to Avoid
There are many materials, styles, colors, and finishes available in the market nowadays, making it harder to decide on what siding to install for your home. Twin Cities Siding Professionals®, a trusted siding contractor in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas, provides this list of things to avoid when installing siding on your home.
- Landscaping that Can Destroy Your Siding
Bushes or shrubs are sometimes planted around the house for additional curb appeal. Because they stand close to your siding, the moisture trapped in the bushes and the proximity of the bushes themselves could cause damage.
- Choosing Inferior Products
There are different siding materials available on the market, and each has their own advantages and disadvantages. Consult your contractor for the different siding products available and trust only brands with sufficient guarantees.
- Poor Installation
Siding should be measured, cut, and fit precisely to avoid gaps when installed. These gaps can allow moisture to enter your home and cause damage.
- Risking Personal Style
It’s not unusual to look for inspiration from your neighbor’s home. Some cities have remodeling guidelines that you should follow, but you can use these limitations to your advantage. You can get creative in choosing colors and styles that will reflect your own without resorting to copying your neighbor’s home aesthetic.
- Mismatched Colors, Materials, and Patterns
Even if you think this color or material looks good, it’s possible that it may not match the overall theme of your home. You should look at the bigger picture and see which colors and patterns will enhance your home’s look and which materials would look best.
