Getting new siding for your home is one of the easiest ways to give your home a facelift. New siding looks fresh and clean, and you can even change the style to reflect your own taste. So, boost your curb appeal with something new.
The Siding Process
Getting siding is straightforward. It starts with a visit from us. We come out to your house to measure. While we are measuring, we also look at your home to inspect its condition. That way, we can tell you whether you will need any upgrades or repairs as part of your siding job.
Then, you pick your siding material. We will let you know what types of siding will work on your house. We can also tell you what styles of siding are common on your type of house. A mismatch between housing style and siding style can make a great looking house and great looking siding look subpar. On the other hand, if you pick the right match, you will have fantastic results.
Once we know what materials you want, we can prepare a full bid. After you accept the bid, we can order your materials and give you a time frame. From the start date, a siding job usually takes about 7 days. Obviously, other factors can influence that timeline such as the size of your home or the weather.
When you get new siding, it can be a great time to improve your insulation. Your siding material provides very little of the R-value for your home. If you want to increase the R-value, certain siding boards can increase the R-value. So, if you do not feel like your home is adequately insulated, this is a great time to improve that R-value.
Types of Siding
There are several types of siding available for residential projects.
- Fiber Cement
Wood is a classic siding choice, but it is expensive, high maintenance, prone to termites, and not fire resistant. For that reason, many people look at other options. Metal siding is classic and is what you find on many older homes in our areas. Metal is strong, low-maintenance, and inexpensive. However, it is prone to storm damage. Brick siding provides a great classic look, but it is expensive, and it is difficult to change.
Vinyl siding is affordable and versatile, making it a popular choice. Certainteed vinyl siding offers a number of high-quality siding options.
Fiber cement composites like James Hardie board are also a great choice. They are long-lasting, can handle weather extremes, and last for years. Though they are more expensive than other options, fiber cement serves as a great investment for your home.
Regardless of which style you choose, you can trust that Carl’s Fencing, Decking & Home Improvements will add the finishing touches to your siding job to make your home shine.
