15 Aug 5 Tips for Choosing Exterior Siding
Siding for houses isn’t what it once was – there are a ton of new aesthetics to choose from and the quality is quite high. One of the reasons exterior siding became popular was because it was easy to maintain. That hasn’t changed. But now you have a lot of options in the look and feel of your exterior design. You might opt for traditional vinyl or something like fiber cement siding. Your exterior might look like wood, brick, or even stucco. Of course, the more options you have, the more confusing it can be to make the final choice. Here are some tips to consider when choosing your exterior siding.
5 Tips for Your Exterior Remodeling Project
- Architectural Enhancement. The first thing you really want to consider is your home’s own architectural style. You don’t want to add a siding that will take away from the original design.
- Cost. An exterior remodeling project can be expensive. You want to consider not only the original budget, but the additional energy savings and upkeep savings the project might provide.
- Upkeep. Once you narrow down the types of siding you’d like, you want to look at the amount of upkeep they’ll need over the lifetime of the siding.
- Energy Efficiency. Siding can offer great energy efficiency savings. Look at aspects such as insulation, which will help maintain the air temperature indoors.
- Environmental Factors. If you’re concerned about green living, consider using environmentally friendly options like cedar. Another added bonus to using any siding option is that it helps conserve heat and air.
