Should I Consider New Siding?

A Story of New Siding

Once upon a time, there was a homeowner named Jane who had been living in her house for over a decade. Her home was a beautiful bungalow-style house in Central Maryland she\’d purchased when she was just starting her career. Over the years, Jane had taken good care of her home, but the siding was starting to look a little worse for wear.

One day, Jane decided it was time to replace the siding on her home. She\’d heard the many benefits of new siding, including increased energy efficiency and improved curb appeal. She also knew that new siding would protect her home from the harsh weather conditions of the hot summer and cold winter months.

Jane contacted a reputable siding contractor and scheduled a consultation. The contractor examined the existing siding and recommended that Jane go with vinyl siding, which is known for its durability and low maintenance requirements. Jane agreed and chose a neutral color that would complement the style of her home.

The contractor and his team arrived on the scheduled day and began the process of removing the old siding. They carefully removed each panel, being sure not to damage the exterior walls of the home. Once all the old siding was removed, the team inspected the walls for any damage and made any necessary repairs.

After the walls were repaired, the team began installing the new vinyl siding. They started at the bottom of the house and worked their way up, ensuring that each panel was level and securely fastened. They paid special attention to the corners and edges, making sure that they were tightly sealed to prevent any moisture from seeping in.

As the days went by, Jane watched as her home transformed before her eyes. The new siding looked clean and fresh, and the color complemented the style of her home perfectly. She also noticed that her home was much quieter and more energy-efficient.

Jane was very happy with her decision to replace the siding on her home and lived happily ever after.

Considering New Siding

Diligent clients often consider new siding when:

Their current siding is in poor condition: If siding is faded, cracked, peeling, or rotting, it may be time to replace. New siding will look tidy and protect a home from the elements.

They’d like to increase energy efficiency: New siding may help reduce heating and cooling costs through better insulation and proper sealing.

They want to potentially increase their home\’s value: Updating siding may increase a home\’s curb appeal and value.

Their current siding is outdated: If siding is outdated or no longer fits their style, new siding can give them a modern look.
