Your home's siding is vital to both its overall aesthetic and its longevity. Siding is one of your home’s first lines of defense. It helps to protect your possessions from water damage, high winds, and other concerns.
Siding is important for a number of reasons beyond protecting your home. Just some of the reasons to get new siding include:
Better Aesthetic: What makes siding and wall cladding so great is their versatility. With a little creativity, you can create a beautiful home for you and your family.
Lower Utility Bills: Your HVAC unit will have to work overtime if your home isn’t properly insulated. Siding is a key factor in making sure your home is insulated, and so it’s important to ensure it’s in good condition.
Increase Market Value: Terrible walls and roofing can lower a property’s value. If you plan to sell your home at some point, then getting new siding installed is an important first step.
Discussing the installation process with a professional can be incredibly beneficial. It allows them to advise you on what type of siding you should get installed and how you should go about the process. If you need expert advice, then please consider contacting Gerzins Exterior Remodeling today.

Signs You May Need New Siding
Rotting or Deterioration
Wood siding requires regular maintenance with coats of paint. If this has been neglected, the elements will speed up the process of rot. A small patch of rot may be easily remedied by replacing a few board of siding, but if rot has spread it my be time to consider new siding before serious damage occurs.
The sun is not our friend when it comes to longevity and siding. Severely faded siding may indicate the siding for your home has come to the end of its lifespan and new siding may be needed.
A possible indicator of a bigger problem, peeling paint or wallpaper inside the home may be a symptom of faulty siding. Poorly installed siding allows moisture to seep in and trap itself underneath, which eventually can cause significant damage to the interior walls of the home.
Siding keeps the elements outside, including pests. Loose or damaged siding provides access to unwanted house guests such as mice, spiders, termites, wasps, earwigs, bees, ants and roaches.
