Is the exterior of your home covered with siding? Do you know how long it’s been since it was installed, cleaned, or replaced? If not, then you may want to look into the process of getting a siding replacement to ensure that it will last as long as possible while maintaining its aesthetic appeal.
Does Your Home Need a Siding Replacement?
The time of year in which you having the siding redone matters. Ideally, it would be within a season where it’s easier to do outdoor work (that is, not in the highest heat of the summer or in the middle of a snowy winter), and in a season where moisture levels aren’t too high.
To determine whether you need a siding replacement job done, you need to take a look around the exterior and search for certain signs, such as warped wood, mold and mildew, and/or dry rot. Some of these might not be apparent to the untrained eye, so you may want to hire a professional to inspect the home just to be sure that you do, or do not, need the replacement.
“Siding isn’t cheap, which means many homeowners and business owners put off investing in it for as long as possible.” However, it’s both a necessity, as it covers your house’s exterior, and it also comes with other benefits as well. It immediately will boost your curb appeal, in case you ever intend to sell, and it can also save money later on by simplifying the maintenance and cleaning process.
As you’re choosing what kind and color siding to use for the replacement, keep in mind that your area should come into play. “The siding should be well suited to the climate and should fit in with the surrounding properties.” You need materials that can stand up to the weather conditions and colors that aren’t too far away from the common color schemes of comparable houses. You could actually get in trouble within your neighborhood by picking too far-out of a color!
