Improve the Look & Function of Your Home’s Exterior!
Installing new siding is one of the effective ways to make your home’s exterior look its very best. A home with old, dirty, or damaged vinyl (or another siding-material) is going to automatically look old. But giving your home a “professional facelift” will make it seem brand new again!
Of course, there are other good reasons to call your local sider for a replacement or repair job. And there are many distinct benefits to keeping your building’s siding in top condition and re-siding it when it’s “seen it’s day.”
Here are 6 of the top reasons why you may want to contact a professional contractor for a siding-job in the near future:
1. Replace Panels That Suffered From Hail Damage
Vinyl siding in Tennessee, given the icy conditions many winters, is often damaged by severe hail storms. Small cracks and holes scattered across one or more walls of your home are obviously unsightly, and they let the rain and bugs underneath while reducing the siding’s insulating effect.
Normally, your contractor will need to replace who areas instead of only individual damaged panels of vinyl. Matching new material with the old vinyl that has somewhat faded colors would otherwise be problematic. But you can find a local sider or roofer who can closely match your existing material.
2. Take Care of Miscellaneous Repairs
There are many specific minor repairs that you may need done to your home’s exterior. For example, siding-panels may be sagging, coming unnailed at points, popping out at the seams, or coming unlocked from the panel below it.
Vinyl can crack in cold weather, which is another common repair issue. The top piece may come loose if it’s too wide and need to be trimmed and re-placed. Occasionally, a homeowner melts a portion of his or her vinyl-siding by putting the grill too close to the wall.
Finally, there are cases where a previous sider didn’t install everything correctly and it needs to be partly re-done. There may be a bad “smile” or “frown” in the wall, for example, or nails put in too tight that then cause “bubbles” or “waves” in the wall.
3. Moss & Grime On My Exterior!
Certain locations and certain walls are more prone to the growth of moss and mildew or the collection of rain and wind-borne dust over the years. It’s not always easy to clean it off, and you may need to resort to a power washing treatment.
Many times, a sider or a roofing company will be able to get your home’s vinyl, aluminum, wood, or other exterior material clean and looking like new again.
4. Restore Siding-material to Full Functionality
Your home’s exterior is covered for aesthetic reasons but not for aesthetics alone. The additional water barrier, wind barrier, and heat-insulating effect are also important.
As siding-material ages, it eventually loses its ability to function at top capacity. Like anything else your home is made of, replacement is sooner or later a necessity. Talk to a local roofer who also handles siding-jobs to get a competitive price on removing that old material and replacing it with something new!
5. Improve Curb Appeal & Resale Value
There’s no doubt about it, making your home look “beautiful again” is a prime motivation for ordering a re-siding job.
But don’t forget that when you improve your home’s curb appeal you also up its resale value. That’s why re-siding your home is a great idea if you are planning on listing it in the foreseeable future.
6. Get Your Roof & Walls Done Together!
Finally, if you are already engaged in major home renovation projects, including having new roofing installed, why not take care of the walls at the same time as the roof?
There are many roofing companies that also offer siding-services, and you can usually save time and money by having the same roofer install both the shingles and the siding-panels.
