A new roof is a great upgrade for your home, but new siding can really transform it! Your Powers Roofing representative will present you with several options and help you design a custom plan for your home.
Siding acts as a shield for the foundation of your home, protecting it from the outdoor elements. It helps preserve your home's insulation, which is responsible for ridding the walls of insects, dirt, and moisture. If insulation is unable to fulfill its purpose, your home is at high risk for moisture buildup, mold, and mildew, leading to structural damage due to bowing or warping of the walls.
Well-insulated siding can keep the heat inside your home while also keeping the cold weather out. Insulated siding is breathable, meaning it allows water vapor to escape, leading to protection from mold, rot, and mildew and contributing to healthy indoor air conditions. Aside from the many practical functions, the visual appeal of siding adds additional allure to your home.
Is your old siding starting to warp, chalk, bend, or pull away from the house? These external signs mean water or moisture is getting below the siding and damaging it. You may also see green or black spots along with the siding, which also signals a moisture issue. An important issue to be aware of is rotting wall sheathing behind the siding. This problem can be identified by feelings for soft spots along, or any places that give in, along with the siding.
If the moisture makes its way into the home, you could see interior damage. Peeling paint or lose wallpaper indicates this moisture issue has taken place.
New siding products typically fall into categories such as wood, wood composites, masonry, metal, vinyl, and synthetic. There are many types, styles, and options now available for residing in a home. Selecting real wood, wood composite, vinyl, metal, or fiber cement typically depends on matching up the right needs and wants for each homeowner and can be affected by the existing structure of the home and budget allocated.
Compared to wood, brick, stone, stucco, and metal sidings based on initial cost, maintenance costs, appearance, durability, and value, vinyl siding is typically a good value if it is the right product for the type and style of the house as well as neighborhood. Powers Roofing offers a broad range of vinyl siding products, so you can choose one that's easily affordable.
