Your home’s siding can be either a blessing or a curse – and sometimes, both. Wood siding looks great when it’s taken care of properly, but as anyone who has a home with wooden siding knows all too well, maintaining this kind of siding takes a lot of work. Every five to ten years (if you’re lucky), your home needs to be scraped, stained or painted. It’s a huge job which everyone with wooden siding dreads. You can hire a Tennessee contractor to do this for you and while this can be more quickly, it can also be a pretty costly proposition. Either way, it’s something which needs to be done to keep your home looking good, but not something anyone looks forward to.
Then there’s older vinyl siding. Vinyl siding always looks good when it’s first installed and although it does need less maintenance than wood siding, nothing lasts forever. Eventually, vinyl siding can start to show its age: fading and warping. Of course, the vinyl siding which was installed on your home in 1975 might have looked great in its day, but if you could do it all over again, you probably wouldn’t go with avocado green or orange! If your siding has seen better days or you’re sick and tired of all the maintenance that wood siding requires, then you may want to consider replacing it with insulated vinyl siding.
Having a Tennessee contractor install new insulated siding on your home won’t just make it look better; it will also make your home more energy efficient. Everyone’s concerned with preserving natural resources and reducing their carbon footprint these days and naturally, everyone’s always been interested in lowering their utility bills. New insulated vinyl siding allows you to do both while giving your home a much needed facelift. Insulated siding helps keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which makes it a more comfortable place to live.
There are a number of advantages of choosing to hire a Tennessee contractor to put up new siding. For starters, you’ll have a much larger choice of colors and styles than you would have in the past. Whether you prefer a traditional or a contemporary look, you can find insulated vinyl siding which matches what you’re looking for. Then there is the cost. The price of new vinyl siding is a lot less than the cost of maintaining wooden siding over the years – and its insulating properties mean that you’ll save even more in the form of lower energy costs starting as soon as you have it installed.
With so many styles and colors to choose from, energy savings, making your home more environmentally friendly and lower maintenance, insulated siding is an obvious choice. If you’re thinking about replacing the siding on your home, start talking to an experienced Tennessee contractor about the benefits of new insulated vinyl siding.
