Your home’s siding has a big job to do. It’s not just there to cover the frame work of your home and look nice, although when you need siding repair, it doesn’t always do either. If you are trying to make the best decision regarding the exterior of your home, you should understand what your siding does before making the decision to repair or replace.
Siding Protects Your Home
Your siding was installed originally to protect your home from the elements and pests. It also finishes a home nicely. Modern products, like that from Exterior Portfolio, provides more than just protection from the bugs and the weather, it also ads a layer of insulation to your home. With the winters we experience in Franklin, having a little more insulation on your home helps keep the heat in and your utility costs down year round.
There are risks in having damaged siding. Water can get into your home without you even knowing it causing dangerous mold and mildew growth. When water penetrates the structure of your home, it can cause structural issues as well. Siding repair is sometimes possible, it depends on the type of damage. If your siding is not fastened to your home properly due to storm damage, it may be able to be reattached. If your vinyl siding is cracked or broken, those pieces will likely need to be replaced. Siding repair does not always result in a consistent look as the sun fades most siding over time. Sometimes the best option is to replace your siding.
Add Curb Appeal
Imagine if your home’s exterior was just painted plywood, it would look flat and boring. Exterior Portfolio’s products are available in many colors and styles that add dimension and pop to your home’s exterior. After all, the exterior walls are what we see most of any home we drive by.
