Siding on a House
There are several main signs that every homeowner should know if you’re wondering if it’s time to to repair old siding on a house. Over time, sun, harsh winters, heavy rain and other elements can cause significant damage to the exterior of your home. If you ever notice rot of any kind of realize that your siding can no longer hold a nail, it’s time to call Four Seasons Roofing. Siding should never crumble or fall off, which can happen through the years to wooden siding, which is popular on older homes. In this case, we recommend switching to vinyl siding. Vinyl gives you longevity and peace of mind.
Sometimes it can be a good idea to replace your siding if your life takes an unexpected turn that leaves little to no maintenance time. Always remember that siding on a house is as important as having a durable roof. Some brands of vinyl siding are extremely low maintenance, so you won’t have to spend time or money on repairs or upkeep in the future. Replacing siding is also a great investment to make for a home that will soon be placed on the market. The knowledge that future owners won’t have to tend to the siding in the new future and the improved curb appeal will make your home a hot commodity on the market.
Siding on a house comes in four main materials: wood, aluminum, vinyl and cement fiber (aka fiber cement). Wood siding is subject to insect damage, splitting and rot. Although it’s common in many older Maryland homes, it requires a great deal of maintenance to keep it looking presentable and free of damage. Caulking and painting will be a major part of your maintenance. Aluminum is a beautiful alternative that lasts long and won’t require much work to maintain. However, it does have a slightly higher installation and replacement cost. Aluminum can also dent and is noisier than your traditional wood siding when it rains. Vinyl, on the other hand, is the most durable when it comes to combatting the elements and insects. You don’t have to paint, or clean vinyl and you can choose from a myriad of cost-effective options.
