The right type of siding can add to your home’s curb appeal. Contractors often advise their customers to take some time to consider what siding they want as the right choice will make their home look great, but the wrong one might make it stand out for all the wrong reasons.
Siding is not just about the looks, however, as it also contributes functionality to your home. Here are some of the factors that make siding important:
While your home has a roof to protect you from the elements, there are also other components that keep your home protected. Siding is one of them. Siding protects your home from water intrusion that can cause all manner of damage. If you install the type of siding – such as fiber cement – that’s impervious to attacks from critters, that adds even more protection.
With the added protection against the elements, siding can give your home that much-needed support to make it last longer. While it doesn’t fix structural problems, it does slow down the deterioration of the components it covers. Siding repair is a lot faster and more affordable than removing rotted wood and other such problems.
Siding is an added layer that also makes your home more comfortable and energy-efficient. It helps prevent heat from entering during summer and the cold during winter. Insulated siding is even more effective in keeping your home warm in winter as it serves to patch up the common thermal bridges, such as the wall studs. Your HVAC doesn’t need to work overtime to cool or heat your home so you also save on your energy bills.
