Purchasing new siding is a big decision, one that will ultimately influence the curb appeal and energy efficiency of your home. After all, unlike a fresh paint job or decorating scheme, installing new siding is something you’re committing to for many years. As such, you’ll need to make all the right choices regarding color, material and texture so your new siding will remain something to be proud of, both aesthetically and functionally, for years to come. Here are three things to consider:
1. Repair or Replace
While siding replacement does have a great return on investment (about 93% recouped), it does require a significant financial outlay so it might be worth waiting until replacement is truly necessary. In some cases, damaged siding can be fixed without having to resort to replacement. Consider performing a thorough inspection of your current siding, checking for rot, warping or mold and mildew growth. Twin Cities Siding Professionals can handle some siding repair jobs, helping you save on the costs of purchasing a new one. However, if damage is quite extensive or the siding is particularly old, the cost of repairs may make replacement the more prudent option.
2. Choosing the Right Siding Color
Naturally, you want a siding color that expresses your personal sense of style without being too overbearing. This is especially true in neighborhoods where houses have a particular theme. You wouldn’t want your house standing out for the wrong reasons. Rest assured that there are so many color and shade variations that you’ll definitely find something that suits your taste.
3. Siding Materials
