Your home’s siding protects you from many things, most notably the elements. When it’s left in poor shape, your home is exposed. This exposure can lead to expensive repairs if left unattended. Seamless Exterior provides three reasons why replacing your siding is a worthwhile investment:
Make Your Home Beautiful.
Because it covers such a huge area, siding for your Waterloo home plays a big role in your home’s curb appeal. As your siding ages, it can fade and lose its once vibrant colors. It can even start to look very dirty. Many siding materials like vinyl, steel, or fiber cement can be painted over, but the process is tedious and costly. When you go for new siding, not only do you get to choose from a range of fresh, vibrant color options—you also reap more benefits that a mere paint job can’t ever bring.
Repair hidden damage.
Aging siding can also allow rainwater to penetrate and cause damage to the structure underneath, most notably any wooden components. Sometimes the damage can grow worse over time without you ever seeing it. Replacing your siding reveals the extent of any structural damage previously undetected with your old siding. This allows you to have the necessary repair work done. Steel siding in Waterloo, IA makes for a good investment considering its superior durability.
Siding also has a hand in regulating how much heat enters or exits your home. The addition of insulation increases the R-value (the measure of resistance to heat flow) of your siding by about 5.5%, letting you save a little more off your energy bills monthly. This is especially true with Seamless Exterior’s cellulose siding option. It’s an eco-friendly material because it’s made from wood pulp and other plant materials. Further, the fact that it is densely packed and leaves little room for air pockets makes it energy-efficient.
Whether it’s to improve your home’s curb appeal, deal with potential hidden damage, or save a little money per month, siding replacement is a smart long-term investment you should make. Seamless Exterior has four great materials you can choose from: vinyl, steel, fiber cement, and cellulose. Each of these has its own unique advantages.
