“When we bought this house, the siding looked fine, at least to me,” Don said. But in the twelve years that have passed, the Burlington homeowner’s opinion has changed. “There’s been some storm damage, and on the north side, where there’s full sun, the color has definitely faded. And here and there, the siding sags. You don’t even have to be that close to it to see where it’s drooping away from the house.”
When vinyl siding starts to show its age, it’s not uncommon for many problems to be noticeable all at once. Here in the Burlington area, where we’ve had several severe winters, sagging siding can lead to potentially serious, expensive structural issues. Vinyl siding plays an important role in protecting your home’s structure against the weather – most especially by keeping moisture in the form of rain and snow away from the wood.
Choosing Vinyl Siding to Boost Curb Appeal
As Burlington siding contractors, we have a lot of experience helping homeowners choose vinyl siding that helps boost curb appeal. Vinyl siding is available in vertical and horizontal styles, including a classic batten board style that is very popular with North Shore homeowners. Vinyl siding can also be installed in combination with brick or wooden shingles. Today’s best vinyl siding options are available in a wide variety of colors, including traditional favorite white and beiges as well as emerging favorite blues, greens, and reds.
Low Maintenance A Plus for Home Buyers
Whether you’re in your forever home or you know you’re planning to sell in a few short years, vinyl siding’s minimal maintenance requirements are a definite plus. While wooden siding requires an expensive paint job every few years, vinyl siding just needs an occassional power washing to stay looking great.
Upgrading Vinyl Siding Can Boost Home’s Energy Efficiency
If your siding is sad and sagging, the energy efficiency boost upgrading provides will be a welcome surprise. Eliminating those gaps where your home’s structure is exposed to the elements helps protect your investment in your home.
