Is Siding a Good Value?
5 REASONS WHY SIDING IS A GREAT VALUE FOR YOUR HOME.
1. Siding Looks Great On Any Home
The first thing visitors see when approaching your home is the siding. So it makes sense to keep your home’s siding looking good. Vinyl, fiber cement, fiberglass or aluminum siding can be shaped and patterned to fit the architectural style of any home. It creates a whole new look that retains its beauty for years with very little maintenance. Today’s siding can have a smooth grain or wood grain finish. Whether you have a modern home, ranch style home, Craftsman or Victorian, there is a siding that is perfect for your needs.
2. Siding Lasts For Decades
Siding stands up to rain, sleet, ice, sun, wind and snow for years and years. It doesn’t peel, crack or fade, and never needs to be painted. The tough materials of modern siding can take quite a beating without showing signs of wear and tear. And it is easy to keep clean just using a garden hose.
3. Siding Can Reduce Home Energy Costs
Siding can save you money on your energy bills. An extra layer of insulation keeps heat in during the cold winter nights and keep your home cooler during the warm summer months. This can translate into lower monthly energy bills that over the life of the siding can add up to significant savings. And if add insulated siding, the savings are even greater!
4. Siding Is A Relatively Inexpensive Home Improvement Project
Compared to the cost of painting your home every few years – which can run into tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your home – siding is a bargain. With a service life that is counted in decades, the initial investment you make in siding your home will be paid back quickly. Plus you’ll gain the peace of mind of knowing that your home’s structure is better protected and you are saving money on heating and cooling costs.
5. Siding Adds Value To Your Home
Recent studies have shown that siding projects are among the top home improvement projects in terms of return on investment. By enhancing your home’s “curb appeal” new siding adds value to a home when you sell it. Even more important, siding adds value to your home while you still live in it, with improved looks, convenience and comfort.
