What is Siding
Siding or wall cladding is the material that is installed to the exterior side of a house. Its primary purpose is to protect your home and just like your roof, is the first in line to protect your home against rain, snow, wind or strong sun-rays. Nowadays, siding materials come in different material varieties and colors to add to the home’s look. Siding can be made of vinyl, cement or a whole mixture of materials; it all depends on personal preference and the weather conditions you live in.
While protection is the main job of siding, there are additional benefits, such as:
- Improve the aesthetic of your home. Updating your siding will bring new colors and life to your home, without breaking the bank. Higher, or luxury siding is available and specifically made for the more stylish homeowners.
- Energy Efficiency. When installing new siding with house wrap, you are helping your home with insulation, thus, less energy is used to cool or heat your home. A well insulated home is an energy efficient home.
- Lower Maintenance. If you update your siding, it is most likely that you won’t have to worry about it for a very long time. Today’s materials are specifically made for durability and extreme weather conditions.
