When Is It Time to Replace the Siding on Your New England Home?
You may be looking for a way to change the aesthetic of your New England home or to improve the value of your home. Siding can be a worthwhile project, but it’s important to know when it’s the right time to move forward.
There are a few tell-tale signs that it might be time for you to start a home siding project.
Enhance Curb Appeal
If you’ve been looking for that “extra something” to add to the overall curb appeal of your home, siding may be the best answer. You can choose the color of vinyl siding that is complementary to your home’s overall decor. Plus, vinyl siding can be virtually maintenance-free, ensuring you won’t have to deal with cracks, peeling, or painting. Vinyl siding also allows you to enjoy the longevity of a high-quality material on your home for many years to come.
If you ever decide to put your home on the market, the siding will help to add value. It may be just what’s needed to sell your home in today’s competitive market.
Replace Old Materials
Older siding materials, such as wood, may be rotting or have a significant amount of mold on it. There may also be dents and scratches that are nearly impossible to repair. Wood siding is only going to get older and rot more over time, so you won’t want to wait until wood siding stops protecting your home from the harsh New England elements. Try to determine when the old siding was last replaced and use it to gauge if it’s time to tackle your siding project. Many trusted siding companies recommend updating every 8-10 years depending on materials.
Improve Energy Efficiency
If your heating/cooling costs are skyrocketing, it might be because you don’t have the insulation that you think you do in your home. When you’ve already done what you can to improve the insulation in the walls, the next step is to replace your home’s siding. Check to see if the new siding you’re looking at is made with NEOPOR, which can provide the added layer of heat loss resistance and insulation that you need.
With premium vinyl siding materials, you should notice a lower energy bill after your siding is replaced. High-quality vinyl siding can help to regulate New England’s hot summers and cold winters, creating a more comfortable atmosphere as well as helping to combat against mold, mildew, and rot.
Improve Noise Reduction
Quality siding can reduce the noise that enters your home. Depending on where you’re home is located in New England, you may be battling with new highways or construction noise. If you have babies are small children who can’t sleep at night because of various sounds from outside, you may consider investing in a premium vinyl siding. Additionally, it will provide you with peace of mind knowing that you and everyone else in your household will be able to get a good night’s sleep.
