Although vinyl siding lasts a long time, eventually you’ll want to replace it. The good news is that when you do, you’ll likely end up with a more energy efficient home and it will have better curb appeal. If you’re looking for new siding information that doesn’t sell you on a brand or particular style, keep reading.
Today’s Siding Looks More Like Wood Siding
If you love the look of your wood siding but not the maintenance, you have options. Today’s siding, both vinyl and fiber cement, look more like real wood siding than older siding. And, they come in many styles including various lap styles, shake, and board and baton.
Add Energy Efficiency by Including an Insulative Home Wrap
Ask your siding company about adding an insulative home wrap before they install your new siding. Today’s energy efficiency guidelines are much improved. Some siding includes insulation which would mean you don’t need the wrap.
You Don’t Have to Choose the Same Style Siding
This bit of new siding information comes as a surprise to many. Just because you have eight-inch vertical siding doesn’t mean you have to choose eight-inch vertical siding again. You can mix and match siding styles to create better curb appeal. You may want scalloped or shake style siding on one portion of your home and lap siding on another.
Both Vinyl Siding and Fiber Cement Siding Require Little Maintenance
Vinyl siding requires the least maintenance of any type of siding. It only needs occasional rising. Fiber cement siding shouldn’t need repainting in the first fifteen years but will eventually need to be repainted. It too will need occasional rising when it’s dirty or has mildew growth.
