When choosing siding options, these 5 factors should be considered before making that important decision for your home.
Water-resistant siding provides longer life spans.
Cost of Installation and Material:
Costs vary widely depending on the type and ease of installation.
Check the R-value rating for energy savings and understand what will be needed as far as insulation beneath the siding.
Aesthetics (Curb appeal):
Siding needs to be visually pleasing.
How does it stand up to everyday wear and tear? How does your climate affect the siding? Heat, humidity, moisture, wind, cold, ice, snow?
