Your siding offers a neat and easy way to improve your home’s curb appeal. But this exterior component also offers many advantages beyond that, including the following:
Provide Additional Weather Protection
Along with the roof system, your siding is instrumental in keeping your home dry and safe against harsh weather conditions. It can effectively head off rain, snow, wind and hail like a second layer of skin. With a properly installed and maintained siding, eliminating the possibility of mold growth and rot, and ensuring the structural integrity of your interior walls and foundation become worry-free.
Add a Thermal Barrier
The siding can augment the performance of your wall insulation. Thanks to the additional barrier it provides, your siding prevents extreme outdoor temperatures from transferring into your home and compromising its indoor environment. This means no unnecessary strain is placed on your heating and air conditioning system, allowing it to continue delivering the reliable and energy-efficient performance you’ve come to expect.
Improve Fire Safety
Did you know that wrapping your home with siding can improve fire safety? This will depend on the siding material and its fire resistance rating. Twin Cities Siding Professionals, for instance, offers high-quality fiber cement siding from James Hardie®. Engineered for durability, this excellent option complies with ASTM E136 as a noncombustible cladding and is recognized by fire departments nationwide. James Hardie fiber cement siding doesn’t ignite like wood or melt under heat like vinyl. Instead, it holds up during a blaze and slows down flame spread, giving homeowners enough time to exit their home to safety.
