Installing new siding for your home is an excellent home improvement project that will improve your home’s comfort, curb appeal and weather resistance. Together with proper insulation, new siding can also make your home more energy-efficient. We recommend not delaying your siding replacement any more than you need to because new siding has such a dramatic effect.
Learn more about the benefits of replacing your siding below.
New Siding Maintains Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Your siding is an important part of your home’s thermal envelope, along with your roof, doors and windows. An energy-efficient home needs to have a thermal envelope that can properly minimize heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. Damaged siding could have leaks that can reduce your home’s energy efficiency. This can make it difficult for your HVAC system to keep you comfortable. We recommend replacing your damaged siding as soon as you can.
New Siding Prevents Additional Water Damage
The longer you wait to install new vinyl siding, the greater the chance for water damage. Delaying siding replacement could allow enough time for water to damage your exterior walls and cause rot. This water can also freeze in low temperatures and cause even worse damage. In addition, water infiltration through your siding can have the same effect as roof leaks, namely increased indoor humidity, fogged windows and mold and mildew growth.
New Siding Makes Your Home Look Good
Damaged siding is not easy to conceal and can greatly reduce your home’s curb appeal. Cracks in your siding or faded siding colors can make your home look older and shabbier than it truly is.
