Choosing new siding for your home is no small task. After all, siding not only enhances your home’s curb appeal but also serves as a protective barrier against harsh weather elements.
In this post, Renovation Team discusses five important factors to consider when choosing the right siding for your home.
In Missouri’s fluctuating weather, your siding should remain durable and attractive while protecting your home from elements like wind, rain, sun, insects and fire. While various siding materials offer resistance to these elements, fiber cement excels in durability.
2. Energy Efficiency
Siding is crucial for minimizing heat transfer and reducing year-round energy expenses. Well-insulated siding materials can create a thermal barrier that prevents heat exchange between your home’s interior and the external environment, leading to lower heating and cooling costs. By choosing energy-efficient siding, you can make your home more sustainable and environmentally friendly while also enjoying savings on your energy bills.
Proper air circulation matters. Well-ventilated vinyl and fiber cement siding systems help regulate indoor humidity by allowing excess warm air to escape.
Choosing easy-to-install siding can cut labor costs, reduce disruptions during installation, and lead to a tidier and more polished exterior look. Prioritizing such options enhances the convenience and success of your home improvement project.
Certain siding materials demand more maintenance than others. Look for low-maintenance options that do not require repainting and can be easily cleaned with a garden hose — like vinyl and fiber cement siding. Unlike wood and composite options, vinyl and fiber cement offer nearly maintenance-free solutions.
