At first you may think that the siding on your home is a trivial issue, but its importance cannot be overstated. The siding will be the first thing people see when they arrive at your house, will determine the curb appeal your home has. Not only that, but your tired, faded siding may be hiding issues in the walls of your home, and letting heat or cool air escape your home.
So, here are some of the benefits we at Green Rhino Builders think installing new vinyl siding could have for your home.
Improve the façade of your home
Because you see your house every day, you probably won’t notice how your siding can fade and discolour over time. Make a point to take a proper look at the siding on your home and you may realize it’s starting to look discoloured and rough around the edges. Getting new siding can be the chance to give your house the makeover it has been waiting for.
Plus, if you are looking to make a change to the look of your house, vinyl siding can come in a wide variety of colors, textures and styles. So, no matter what style you are looking for, you’ll be able to find one that makes your home look great, boosting your curb appeal.
Increase energy efficiency
If you are looking to save money on your energy bills and make your home more energy efficient, then replacing your siding with Green Rhino’s new, much more energy efficient vinyl siding is a step in the right direction.
When new siding is installed on your home, you can even take advantage of the work to add a layer of insulation between the wall of your home and your new siding. This can be particularly important if your old siding was installed when insulation was more expensive, so your home has been lacking this feature.
This insulated vinyl siding means your house will be much better at keeping cool air and heat in, while minimizing any leakages or loss, which can have a marked impact on your energy costs and save you money every year!
Stronger than other siding materials
Vinyl siding is stronger than alternative materials, such as wood. The vinyl is designed to withstand the elements like wind, rain, hail and sun. Also, due to vinyl’s water resistant properties, it will resist rotting and corrosion over time.
Due to the strength and versatility of vinyl siding, it will require very little work to maintain over the years. You won’t have to worry about the daunting task of having to repaint your entire house every few years. Simply cleaning your vinyl siding periodically will keep it looking fresh and new.
Reveal hidden issues to repair
Having new siding installed on your home is the perfect opportunity to see if your old siding has allowed any rainwater to leak through, causing structural damage to your home. This damage won’t always be immediately obvious, so catching it early when changing your siding can stop any problems from getting worse in the future, potentially saving you money in the long run.
