Quality Siding Is Important, Here's Why...
Your home is your family’s safe space. It’s where you can unwind after a long day and reflect on the day’s events. Think of the siding on your home like a protecting shield. It keeps any outside resources out and helps keep the heat that warms your family inside. While yes, your home does have wood and foundation protecting it as well, you may ask yourself, “Is having quality siding on my home really that important?” The answer is yes. Let’s discuss this.
It adds value to your home
If your family plans to move in the next few years, you may want to invest in proper siding. The siding and the condition that it's in will be an important factor that potential buyers will look at upon their first time seeing the home. They’ll notice if the paint needs to be redone, or if any panels are hanging off or missing. Choosing to reside your home can add a significant amount of resale value to your property. In fact, it’s estimated that you’ll see a 89% return on your investment. Depending on where you live, of course, that almost pays for itself!
Lower energy bills
Like I mentioned previously, the siding on your home is the outer protection. It helps keep your family safe. It’s estimated that siding can help reduce your energy bills by 25%. Along with that, it doesn’t allow any outside substances to come in, such as cold air. Also, if you live in a busy area, it can help keep the noise level to a minimum, so you don’t have to be annoyed with your neighbors. Less money spent on bills and less noise, that’s a win-win!
Old siding can be harmful
If your home is older and you’re unsure of how old the siding is, it may be causing damage to the frame and seeping in. When that happens, it can allow moisture inside, and that’s when you’ll begin seeing issues with mold growing and the wood rotting. Along with that, it makes it easier for insects and other things to get inside. Updated siding ensures that your home has proper protection and keeps your family safe.
