Five Factors to Consider When Siding Your Home
Some look at a house and only see a home. Others think of what that house says about them. In our business, we don’t see the need to choose. If you request an estimate, you can rest assured that we see your house as a home that sends a message of your design.
Once you hire us to re-side your house, we will help you consider more than just its curb appeal. Both your personal style and the long-term performance of the siding are equally important. We appreciate aesthetic sensibilities but we are also intent on protecting your house from the elements. If you haven’t already, review these five factors essential to the process of determining how you will side your home.
We love our clients but we don’t plan on seeing them for anything but maintenance, at least not for a good long while. Instead, we will discuss the various options in terms of materials to side your house with, as well as each one’s long-term durability. Many customers opt for wood, despite its susceptibility to water and insect damage. Vinyl has other issues, such as heat or impact damage, but it will last longer than wood. As you can see, there is enough to discuss regarding durability alone.
Constant maintenance means constant spending, regardless of how long the siding lasts. You will want your siding to always look its best but we will help you make the best decision for your time and budget. If you are okay with painting, scraping and replacing damaged or rotten boards, then wood might still make sense. Vinyl does not have such issues, adding easy upkeep to its list of advantages.
Now we can get into aesthetics and it goes without saying that siding that fails to match your home’s architectural style will receive an F in that department. Even a passing glance should not reveal such a faux pas. That is why we rely on our experience with other homes of your architectural style to ensure that your siding will enhance your home’s curb appeal.
The decorative elements on your home’s façade are the details that reveal your home’s architectural style. Panels around windows or octagon-shaped shingles beneath your roof line are just a few examples. There is no devil in these details, only the expertise of home improvement professionals.
Color warrants a paragraph all its own. Color is how homeowners express themselves, which matters a great deal to us. Whether it be to match your home’s architectural color palette, start over with a fresh new look or match the other homes in your neighborhood, color is crucial.
Whether you plan to pass it on to your children or seek the best return of your investment, the siding on your home impacts its resale value. Certain types of siding equate to different rates of return. We do not take our role in this facet of homeownership lightly. Request an estimate so that we may begin discussing the message you wish your home to send.
