When it's Time for New Siding, We Leave the Options Up to You
Roughly every twenty to thirty years, a home's siding begins to appear outdated. Since siding serves both an aesthetic and protective purpose, shielding the building paper, sheathing, wall studs, insulation and your interior layer, it's no wonder that after several years your siding won't seem appealing or remain as sturdy. Like all exterior pieces of a building, the major purpose is to protect the elements within. The second responsibility is to protect the inside elements in a stylish manner.
Most siding problems occur in areas that are not as noticeable, or rather in areas that we tend to ignore. Examples include where siding meets a chimney, around doors and windows and wherever there is contact with bushes and treetops.
Many people fear remodeling any element of their house as they want to ensure that every piece is installed correctly and the new siding will help increase the value of the house rather than decrease it. Poor installation of siding can also result in a homeowner having to continuously fix problems, such as a loose nail or replace a damaged board, which are inconvenient. But, if siding is installed correctly, you won't encounter problems.
People enjoy remodeling homes because it allows some creativity. When selecting siding for your house, you have an array of styles and colors to choose from.
