Like most important home improvement projects, your siding replacement has a process to it. Many homeowners consider the planning stage as the most important. That’s because it allows you to go over your options, cover all the bases and finalize any major decisions, which should include your choice of siding. To help you pick the right one for your home, check out these essentials:
1. Take the siding material into account. How well your new siding performs – and how long it lasts – will depend on its material. There are plenty of siding choices available on the market today, ranging from vinyl, which is cost-effective and versatile, to fiber cement, which is designed to be durable and enduring. If you want something traditional but premium, there’s brick, natural stone and wood shingle. Each one has its pros and cons, so weigh your options carefully and pick something that will best suit your needs and budget. If you need help choosing, you can always consult a premier exterior renovation expert like American Roofing & Construction, LLC.
2. Decide on a good siding color. This can be a bit tricky, especially if you live in a community with a homeowner’s association (HOA). Should this be the case, your exterior palette will be somewhat limited as you’ll need to choose a color that’s pre-approved by HOA guidelines. In any case, you’ll be safe if you stick to a neutral siding color for your home. Tan, beige, white and gray are lovely and timeless colors that can effectively match any home style. If possible, you can even choose one siding color for your home’s lower level and a different one for the upper level.
3. Don’t overlook energy efficiency. Siding does many things for your home. It acts as a barrier that protects your interiors from water and moisture while also helping your home make a greater impression from the curb. But the siding can also be so much more. In fact, by choosing the right one, you can even improve your home’s thermal comfort and energy efficiency. All you need to do is check the insulating properties of your siding options.
