When people think of the most important parts of a house they typically think of the roof or multiple other parts. But, siding is never anyone’s first thought. Some people think siding is just for the exterior appearance but, in this article, we will discuss siding and why it is so important.
First, let’s talk about what siding is. Siding is the material that covers the outside of your home. Siding can be done horizontally or vertically and can be made to look like wood or a textured pattern. Siding can also be made of different materials including vinyl or boards.
Now that you know what siding is, let’s discuss why it is important. There are a few main reasons that it is important including protection. When people look at siding, they usually only think about its appearance of it but no one actually thinks about the protection it gives to your home. Siding protects your house from weather damage including hail and rain. The weather deflects off of the siding so that your actual home is not damaged.
Another thing that siding protects your house from is any pests. It prevents pests from entering your home and destroying your foundation.
Another main reason that siding is important is that it actually insulates your home. Siding helps keep your home warm in the winter and cold in the summer. Without it, your electricity bill would most likely skyrocket because you would get too cold in the winter and vice versa for summer weather.
One last main reason that siding is important is that it increases the value of your home. If you are moving any time soon, you are trying your best to get the most money you can for your house. Siding can boost the value of your home. Buyers will see your house as more appealing if you have fresh-looking siding.
