The exterior of your home is extremely important, not only is it one of the first things people notice about your home, it is also the first line of defense against each of the 4 seasons we experience here in the Hudson valley. Aging siding not only becomes an eyesore, but allows the elements to slowly make their way into the walls of your home. The good news is that replacing your siding allows you to increase curb appeal, increase energy efficiency, and repair any hidden structural damage. Here are some benefits of new siding…
The most convenient and cost-effective time to add insulation to the exteriors walls of your home is during a re-siding job. Installing rigid-foam insulation and a home wrap product on your home’s exterior can make your living space more comfortable and save money on heating and cooling costs.
In addition to adding energy-efficient products behind your siding, you can also boost your home’s efficiency even more by adding new windows and/or roofing to your home at the same time.
Many types of new siding are virtually maintenance-free or have very low maintenance requirements. Instead of repainting your entire wood-sided home every few years, upgrade to vinyl or Hardie siding and you’ll get to spend more time simply enjoying your home.
Peace of Mind
Installing new siding gives you the chance to block air leaks or add new flashing to better protect your home from moisture. Newer siding technologies offer also better protection for your home, and some types of siding, such as HardiePlank®, are specifically engineered for various climates, called HardieZones®. Many of latest siding options are more durable than ever, keeping your home looking newer for much longer.
