Upgrading your siding, much like a roof replacement project, is a big-ticket home improvement that provides your home with a number of advantages. Your siding acts like the “skin” of your home, protecting your walls against rain, sun, and snow. In addition to its functional benefits, the right siding can also greatly improve the curb appeal of your home. Conversely, choosing a bad siding product can also make your home stand out like a sore thumb in your neighborhood.
When your siding boards are doing their job correctly, it’s hard to pay them any mind. This is exactly the reason why they are perhaps the most unsung heroes in your home. However, let our experts at South Shore Roofing, Inc. give you a quick overview of what your siding can do for you so you can appreciate its many qualities.
One often overlooked benefit of siding is the support it provides to both your walls and your roof. A good siding and roofing company will always consider the structural integrity of your home whenever they’re installing your siding. While siding alone cannot be relied on for support, they add a valuable secondary layer of protection against common structural problems.
The right color siding can help make your home a little bit cooler by reflecting much of the sun’s heat away from your home. Some products even have added insulation to further enhance your thermal envelope, keeping your interiors cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
You don’t have to be a professional roofer to know how much damage water can inflict on your roof, your drywall, your basement, and your foundations. A well-maintained siding can help protect you against water penetration, ensuring that your interiors remain dry even under heavy rains.
