Siding plays a significant role in your home’s curb appeal and weather protection. It can elevate the look of your exterior and make your property stand out from the rest. However, siding isn’t just something that makes your humble abode attractive.
This part of your home’s exterior can also affect your living space.
Water Damage Prevention
During heavy rains, siding keeps water and moisture from entering your home. Water is the worst enemy of many construction materials. It can cause mold and mildew growth, rot, electrical system issues and even poor indoor air quality. Excess moisture can compromise the studs and frames that hold your home together, resulting in extensive structural damage.
You can avoid costly problems in your home by keeping your siding in good shape. Fortunately, many of today’s materials are easy to maintain. You can ask your siding contractor about high-quality and low-maintenance options.
If your energy bills are increasing, it could be due to compromised siding. Besides protecting your interior and belongings, siding can improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. It provides added insulation, helping your spaces stay cool in summer and warm in winter. When installed correctly, it will prevent conditioned or heated air from escaping your home, resulting in lower utility costs.
How long has it been since the installation of your siding? If it is aging or has severely deteriorated, it’s time to consider getting a new one. Waiting too long to get a replacement could result in drafts, which could compromise your comfort and increase your energy costs.
