Most homeowners know that siding benefits include improves their home’s curb appeal and a higher resale value, however, few realize the other benefits associated with replacing it. If you’re looking other reasons to replace your siding, we can help. Here are three that we share with our customers.
1. Increased Energy Efficiency
Chances are good that your home lacks the level insulation recommended in new home construction today. Today’s building codes include an insulative home wrap beneath the siding and unless you had new siding in the past ten years or an unusually energy conscious installer, you probably don’t have insulation beneath your siding. When you replace your siding, your siding company will install an insulative home wrap or siding with built in insulation. This will make your home more comfortable and lower your heating and cooling costs. One of the hidden new siding benefits is that your HVAC won’t work as hard so it may last longer, adding to the money you’re saving on lower utility bills!
2. Less Maintenance
If you have wood siding and replace your siding with vinyl siding, you’ll never need to worry about painting your siding again. If you already have vinyl or aluminum siding you’ll still have less maintenance because today’s siding is more mildew resistant so rather than having to pressure wash your home once or twice a year to remove mildew, you’ll just need to rinse it when it becomes dirty.
3. More Comfortable Home
Many homeowners report that their home is less drafty with their new siding. Some even say it’s quieter. There are two reasons its quieter; older siding isn’t always well-affixed which means when it’s windy out, there’s noise from the siding moving or even banging against your home. Second, the insulative house wrap that improves the energy efficiency also insulates against sound. The quieter home is one of the most surprising of siding benefits our customers enjoy.
