We hope that spring truly is around the corner after this massive cold snap. Spring and summer are the perfect times of the year for replacing siding, so if this project has been on your to-do list for a while, it is time to get it done. This simple remodeling project will add curb appeal to your home and increase your home’s value. The most difficult thing about this project will be choosing the material that you want to use.
If you love the look of stone, then you may want to consider having synthetic stone installed on your home. This product is formed by mixing cement, sand, and aggregate and molding it to look like real stone. Synthetic stone is fire and insect resistant and costs less than real stone. It is also lightweight, so installation is not that difficult. If the price of this material is higher than your budget allows, we recommend that you consider using it as an accent on a portion of your home.
Engineered Wood Siding
Engineered wood siding is a little cheaper than real wood siding and it is just as durable. The siding is made from wood fibers and exterior grade resins, and is available in many different styles and textures. You can choose this siding already finished or you can choose to paint or stain it yourself. The borate that is added to this siding as it is being manufactured keeps insects away.
Wood siding is a perfect choice, especially if you are looking for an all-natural look and charm for the outside of your home. You can choose the type of wood for your siding, but you will want to decide whether you want to paint or stain your siding first. Certain woods are better for staining, while others need to be painted for the best look when finished. This type of siding will last a long time if you maintain it quite often.
Vinyl siding is the most popular siding choice, because it is durable as well as affordable. This type of siding is available in many different colors and it can be installed over existing siding. You will be able to maintain vinyl siding easily, because dirt will wash off and it never needs to be painted or stained.
