Siding Ideas to Consider for 2019
What will your siding replacement be in 2019?
When having a siding replacement done, there are several different factors to consider. You want to consider how the siding will look, whether it will boost your curb appeal and add value to your home. Cost is also an important factor. Other factors include things like durability, and in particular, durability against the specific climate of Vermont. With so many factors to consider, the choices can seem overwhelming, but here are a few siding ideas that may help narrow down your search.
Wood siding can’t be beat when it comes to a classically elegant look. There’s something about wood that just looks and feels like home, so it’s a popular option among many Vermont homeowners. You do want to keep in mind, however, that wood is not impervious to the elements. It can be worn down by water over time, which is why it’s important to have moisture barriers installed to keep wood siding healthy. It’s also not low maintenance, but if you’re looking for style, warmth, and something that makes a statement, you may find the maintenance worth it.
Vinyl siding is an option for those who can’t afford the price of wood, or the maintenance of wood. Vinyl siding is more affordable, but unlike wood, it doesn’t take in water, so it resists rotting and warping. It doesn’t peel or dent, and it never needs to be painted, so the low maintenance of vinyl is often appealing. You can even find vinyl siding that’s made to resemble wood, while retaining all the qualities of vinyl siding. However, if you’re looking for a more colorful siding option, vinyl siding might also be appealing because of its sleek look.
