Siding 101

Siding is a material that protects the exterior walls of a home or residential style building as well as the contents within. Weather such as rain, snow, wind, and tropical storms can damage houses without adequate siding much quicker than those with it. Siding also helps keep a home properly insulated, keeping the interior warm during the winter and cool during the summer.

Siding is also a main aesthetic feature of the home, as it takes up most of a home’s exterior. Attractive siding is important to the value and appeal of any house, and can be catered to fit any style.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the warning signs that your siding needs replacing as well as some of the various siding styles offered by most home improvement companies.

Maintenance and Replacements

All siding needs maintenance and eventually should be replaced. Here are some of the signs that it’s time to replace your siding.

·      Warped Siding

·      Repeated Repainting

·      Increased Energy Bills

·      Holes

·      Dry Rot

·      Loose or Cracked Siding

·      Fading

These damages can signify improper insulation, structural issues and safety concerns. If you notice any of the above, we highly recommend calling Momentum Home to further assess your situation and assist with your renovation project.

Aesthetic Value

Many choose to replace their siding simply to add value to their home and to match their style. Replacing your siding can give your house a brand-new feel!

There are many types of siding that come with different features, looks and benefits. Below are some different types of siding you have available to choose from.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl is a tough, durable, versatile and virtually maintenance-free. Insulated vinyl siding prevents heat loss between wall studs in exterior walls while also helping to keep your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Vinyl siding is also very popular because it’s available in virtually any color and has a relatively low cost.

Wood Siding

Wood siding is another common choice because it creates a rich, unique look. Wood remains a popular and durable option for siding and is another top choice for homeowners who are re-siding their house.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is the latest development in residential siding. It is a low maintenance, long-lasting home exterior solution that is extremely durable and made from recycled materials. Fiber Cement siding is available in a variety of colors, textures and styles that can work well with virtually any type of home.

Stone Veneer

Stone is a beautiful home exterior option, but real stone is pricey. Stone veneer is a fantastic alternative – it is cheaper and more durable than a real stone exterior.
