Everyone wants their home to look its best. And when looking good also means saving time and money, it is even better!
New exterior siding can go a long way in improving the appearance of your home while also reducing maintenance costs. This is important if you are selling your home, and even more important if you are planning to continue living in your home for many years.
Home sellers who want to increase curb appeal in a stalled housing market find that new siding helps their home stand out in a crowded real estate market. New siding can change the entire look of your home, giving it a bright, fresh appearance that is sure to catch the eye of potential homebuyers.
If you are staying put, new siding offers even more advantages. In addition to transforming an old, dreary look, new siding can also reduce home maintenance needs, especially if you upgrade from wood siding to an engineered product like fiber cement or premium vinyl. The right siding product can also thwart problems like woodpeckers, termites and mildew.
Some siding styles can even help reduce your monthly energy bills. Properly insulated, siding can greatly lower the rate of heat transfer between your home and outside. This means you will stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, use less energy for heating and air conditioning, and lower utility bills.
Of course, less maintenance on your home means more time to spend on other, more pleasant activities. So if you’d like to improve your golf game, plant a beautiful garden, travel, or spend more time with family and friends, new siding is a good move!
