REPLACEMENT & INSTALLATION PROJECTS
The many benefits of new siding are, by no means, restricted to aesthetics. New siding is also helpful in protecting your real estate investment. Guarding your home against deterioration and adding to the resale value, it is a fantastic investment. In order to provide maximum protection for your home, it is important to take local weather into consideration. What are the weather patterns that your building will be facing? Pouring rain? Freezing winds? Baking heat? If your location is prone to extreme weather, make sure to discuss this with your contractor. They will have expert advice on the best kind of siding to serve your needs.
Most home and business owners choose Hardie (fiber cement), vinyl, or natural wood siding. Each of these materials comes with benefits and burdens. One of the widely differing categories among them is the amount of cleaning that they require. The easiest to scrub up is vinyl siding–it can just be hosed down or wiped off with a wet rag. Hardie Siding is also fairly easy to keep up. A thorough cleaning will require a power washer, but it’s quick and straightforward if you have the right tools. Wood siding requires the most upkeep of the three. It will require painting and staining at regular intervals, in addition to general cleaning.
