Your home’s siding is like the roof in many ways. In addition to enhancing curb appeal and energy efficiency, it also plays a crucial role in protecting your home against the elements. In this post, Twin Cities Siding Professionals explains how siding improves your home in six ways.
1. Increased Durability
Choosing top-tier siding for your home makes it durable. Our quality siding materials from James Hardie® have outstanding resistance to UV rays, extreme temperatures, humidity and insect damage. Your home will always look great with durable materials that can last a lifetime.
2. Fire Resistance
With quality materials, you can sleep soundly knowing that fires will not melt and ignite them easily. Top-tier siding materials have life-saving fire resistance ratings. Currently, James Hardie siding carries the highest fire-resistance rating of A2 on the market.
Siding products with exceptional weather resistance means that it can perform under extreme conditions while also being fade-resistant. They can also endure damage from wind-blown debris that can hit your home during a severe storm. Furthermore, they are easy to clean and repair once the storm passes.
4. Pest Resistance
High-quality siding also keeps insects and other pests out of your home. James Hardie siding, for instance, is made from well-formulated fiber cement that small insects and animals cannot scratch or include in their diet. In comparison, wood can suffer immense damage from termite and insect infestations.
5. Noise Reduction
Different siding products vary in terms of how much noise they can block off. Those that are denser and thicker can absorb sound and keep your interiors peaceful and quiet, which is beneficial if you live in a noisy area or near a busy road.
6. Energy Efficiency
Siding can help improve the energy efficiency of your home. Modern siding materials keep your homes comfortable by retaining indoor temperatures. Together with sufficient insulation and an airtight seal around your home’s energy envelope, you can be sure of lower energy bills during the summer and winter months.
