Your home’s siding can give off that fantastic first impression if it looks right. But new siding is also more than just upgraded curb appeal. New siding keeps your home’s foundation in great shape while lowering your energy bills. If your home’s siding is deteriorating due to poor installation or aging, it might be time to consider your siding replacement options.
Here are a few danger signs which could indicate that it’s time for new siding. Some are obvious, while others, not so much:
Aluminum Siding: Aluminum siding is a dependable siding option that was very popular in the late 20th century and is still installed across many homes in the U.S. It’s pretty durable, and if properly maintained, it can last 40+ years. Aluminum siding can also be easily painted with any color you choose.
Vinyl Siding is inexpensive, easy to obtain, quick to install, and easy to manage. It’s made from a durable type of plastic. While it can’t be painted, vinyl siding does come in many styles, even imitating the look of wood and other materials.
