Replacing your Siding Elgin
The outside of your home is the most prominent part of your home that your guests see first. Having the outside of your home look old and worn will give people the impression that the inside is old as well. New siding can give your home a new look and can give your home a boost in market value. Replacing your siding can also help you in different ways. Often times older siding lets more heat out or in during the winter and summer months. It can let insects or even small vermin into your home and can cause major problems to the structural stability over time. Sunshine Siding and Windows can help replace your siding and get your home looking its best.
There are several different types of siding, and all have the benefits and drawbacks. Picking the right siding for your home is all about what you are looking for. Often people choose based on looks. Either way, professional installation is always the best to make sure that your siding looks its best.
Wood Siding Elgin
Natural wood siding can give your home a distinct look that is very reminiscent of older times. Cedar is a common siding choice for wood as it is pest resistant. While the look of wood is desirable and it can resist damage from both high and low impacts. Wood siding is more vulnerable to the weather and other forces causing it to rot or wear out.
Vinyl Siding Elgin
One type of material for siding that most people think of is vinyl. This is because of the low cost in not only installation but in maintenance. Vinyl Siding also comes in a wider range of colors and other design elements. However one of the drawbacks of Vinyl is when it becomes damaged the entire panel needs to be replaced. It also is easier to crack than metal or wood siding when in high winds and can easily be shredded by a snowblower or lawnmower.
Aluminum Siding Elgin
Aluminum Siding is another common siding type in the area. This is due to Aluminum’s natural insulating properties that can keep heat out in the summer, and heat in during the winter. High-quality aluminum siding has a higher resistance to damage than vinyl when it comes to high winds, but dents easier with lower impacts. Like Vinyl aluminum also has a lower cost than other traditional siding choices. It is also highly insect resistant.
Siding Installation Elgin
No matter what siding you pick, having it installed correctly can make all the difference. When your siding is installed incorrectly, it leaves your home vulnerable to the elements. Moisture from rain or just a humid day can enter causing the wood under the siding to start to rot. Wind and freezing rain can cause the problem to get worst by expanding the gaps in your siding.
