Siding is not only meant to increase curb appeal. Sure, aesthetics play a part in your choice of siding, but function should always outweigh form. Different siding offer different benefits but are all designed to protect our homes.
Protects the Structure and Interior
Think of your home as a body, with the frame and beams as the skeleton. Your siding is the skin that wards off harmful elements like hail, heavy winds, rain and more. Keep your siding in good shape, and it will also keep your home intact.
Shields You From the Elements
Over time, home structures can develop cracks in walls. Siding doesn’t serve as a fix to these kinds of problems. But it provides extra protection from the elements that slows down further damage. Think about what might happen if the siding weren’t acting as a barrier.
Keeps You Comfortable in Any Weather
While siding is often a thin layer on the exterior, it still does a lot to insulate your home. Think of it like wearing a windbreaker or light jacket. Along with the insulation and interior walls, it keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. And, that not only makes you more comfortable, but also saves you money on energy bills.
Helps Waterproof Your Home
If water is getting inside, it might be time to replace your aging siding. Siding helps to waterproof your home.
