What to Consider When Re-Siding Your Home

Re-Siding Your Home

Is your home ready for a re-siding project?

Siding is one of the most important aspects of the exterior your home that people often don’t notice unless it’s damaged, discolored, or looking a little bit worse for wear. However, your siding plays a huge role in the safety of your home. Siding boosts your home’s curb appeal, gives it extra style, and helps to protect the structure of your home. Are you ready for re-siding at your home? Here are some of the things that you need to consider during the re-siding process.

Durability

Re-siding is a big undertaking, and you don’t want to need to repeat the process more often than absolutely necessary. As a result, it’s important to choose siding that is durable and built to last. Wood is a classic option for re-siding, but it doesn’t always last as long as a result of insect damage and water damage. Vinyl is another popular re-siding material choice that can be replaced in sections as it ages.

Maintenance

Re-siding materials should also suit your home maintenance patterns. Do you enjoy regularly spending time outdoors taking care of your landscaping and hardscaping? Is it a pain to even get outside to mow the lawn? Choose a re-siding material that suits your maintenance personality so that you get the most longevity and pleasure from it. Wood siding, for one example, requires regular maintenance including re-painting, replacing rotting or damaged boards, and more.

Color

Some homeowners are creative and love adding personality to their home with their siding choice. Others are a little less adventurous or are under the rule of an HOA. If color is important to you, choose a siding material that offers flexibility. Wood siding can be painted a wide variety of colors and vinyl siding is already available in many different shades to suit your personality and your home.
