Your home’s siding doesn’t just make it beautiful. It helps improve energy efficiency and makes your home more peaceful by blocking outdoor noise. Most importantly, it provides protection against weather extremes and harsh elements.
Here are all the ways your siding protects you home.
Provides Extra Support
The structure of your home can deteriorate over time and become vulnerable to outside forces. Siding adds an additional layer of protection that can delay the deterioration of your home’s structure.
Strengthens the Structure and Interior
Siding protects your home’s interior from hail, heavy wind, rain and harsh sunlight. It also helps in keeping your interior comfortable when it’s too hot or cold. As your siding faces these harsh conditions, much like your roofing system, it’s important to have it regularly maintained.
Siding can significantly improve your home’s insulation, keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. You won’t only have comfortable living spaces but also significantly lower energy bills.
Gives Moisture Protection
The gutters, roof, foundation and landscaping are your primary defense against water damage, as well as the siding. It prevents rain and moisture from entering your home’s interior. Leaks can result in mold growth and water damage, which can compromise your home’s structural integrity.
Types of Siding
Siding is available in various materials, all of which offer different benefits. Vinyl siding is popular for its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. Fiber cement siding has the beauty of wood with the low-maintenance features of vinyl. Aluminum won’t rot or crack and it’s ideal for wet climates. While wood siding costs less than other materials, it requires more frequent maintenance.
