Similar to the various components of your home’s exterior, your gutters also require periodic maintenance…
If you’re looking to boost your home’s curb appeal, it’s worth considering the replacement of your siding. While siding can last for many years, there comes a point when it requires an update. Most siding is good for at least 20 years, while some other types may last for decades longer. However, if your siding is over 20 years old, you should consider replacing it. Doing so will impart an immediate facelift to your home, significantly elevating its curb appeal.
Vinyl siding stands out as one of the most sought-after siding options, renowned for its exceptional durability. With its low-maintenance attributes and the convenience of being easily washable, it can be washed and often used to replace existing siding. This versatility and resilience explain its widespread popularity among homeowners.
If you have a more expansive budget, you may want to consider wood siding. An excellent wood siding can be resistant to insects and mold. You can also paint it or stain it to achieve the desired aesthetic. Opting for cedar imparts a natural aging process and it will age on its own to a beautiful silver. However, these sidings are generally higher-maintenance than other options. So, you need to consider the ongoing maintenance costs, not just your upfront costs.
You may or may not be familiar with aluminum siding. It was the original type of siding that became popular in America in the middle of the last century. Metal siding can last a lifetime. It is easy to install. However, it is more challenging to maintain and repair. Its longevity often makes it the most economical choice.
If you want a new look but your exterior siding is in good condition, you may want to consider a new paint color. You can paint most siding options. Vinyl sidings are not painted, so you must replace the siding if you want to change their color. However, you can paint other types of siding, usually for a fraction of the cost of returning the siding.
