The siding industry has come a long way thanks to manufacturing advancements, making modern siding materials highly durable against severe weather conditions. However, no matter how sophisticated or durable your siding materials are, there will come a time when they will fail due to sustained exposure to heat and the elements. With that comes the question of when you should have your siding replaced. Unless it’s an emergency, both roof repair and siding replacement contractors would agree that the fall months are the best time to have a siding replacement.[…] Read More
5 Factors to Consider When Choosing Siding
Selecting new siding is one of the most important decisions homeowners face when building new or remodeling an existing home. Your choice of siding has a major effect on your home’s appearance, weather resistance and durability. That’s why you need to consider several factors before choosing a new siding for your home.
Whether you are building a home or remodeling one, there are five key areas homeowners should account for when determining which siding option meets your needs, according to roof repair experts at Patriot Roofing LLC.
- Ease of Installation
A faster installation brings in less disruption to your home. Not only does it reduce the number of days you need to deal with loud sounds and piles of clutter, but also help save dollars on labor.
Your siding determines your home’s appearance because it is the largest part of your exterior. When choosing your siding options, you need to think about the available colors and how well the siding matches your home’s architectural style.
The siding, along with the roofing, is your primary line of defense against harsh elements, such as hail and wind. It is important to find a material that can effectively stand up to environmental threats for a long period of time.
A high-maintenance siding material that needs frequent cleaning or repair is not only inconvenient, but also impractical. It is a good idea to choose a material that does not need to be restained or repainted, and only requires a mild detergent and clean water to look brand new.
- Energy Efficiency
As part of your home’s exterior, siding with good insulation can help improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat conduction between interior and exterior surfaces. This helps maintain consistent indoor temperatures, which results in reduced indoor cooling and heating requirements that lead to savings on your energy bill.
