Benefits of Siding for Your Home


Having siding installed is an important decision. At Frontline Adjusters, our siding experts have found that after installation, our clients enjoy the following:

Low Maintenance

Most types of siding materials, especially fiber cement and vinyl siding, require little to no maintenance to keep it looking great. This means less time spent on cleaning the exterior of your home and more time enjoying life and relaxing.

Reduced Paint Costs

If you’re tired of having your home repainted every few years, then siding is a great choice for your home. Fiber cement siding holds its color more than twice as long as other types of siding options. Vinyl siding never needs to be painted. Both fiber cement siding and vinyl siding will never fade, chip, crack, or flake. This means you can break the cycle of scraping and painting your home every three to four years.

Most experts agree that a home should be painted at least every six years, or more often in harsh climates. This can end up costing you thousands of dollars over the years. In fact, having siding installed can save you over $50,000 in painting costs over time.


Improves the Value of Your Home

While adding new siding is a major investment, it’s an investment that comes with a great return. If you plan on selling your house in the future, replacing the siding can make the biggest difference in improving your home’s worth. Aside from making it look better and more modern, siding can protect a house from potential structural damage due to inclement weather. Additionally, with siding, you will be able to sell your home for a considerably higher price.

 

Boosts Curb Appeal

In addition to improving the structural integrity of a house, adding siding can dramatically boost curb appeal. Siding makes a house look brighter, more modern, and can instantly transform a home. One of the most exciting aspects of replacing siding is that it allows you to completely change the entire look of your house. You may decide to add some extra architectural details to further enhance your house’s new fresh appearance.

 

Energy Efficiency

If you aren’t considering selling your home, adding siding still offers many benefits including energy efficiency. Choosing a lighter color or shade can help avoid attracting the sun’s heat which will also lower your electric bill. The benefits are significantly compounded when you add increased insulation to your exterior walls. Additionally, you also have the option of having the cavities in the walls filled with a type of blown-in insulation that can increase a house’s R-10 value.

 

Repair Unseen Structural Damage

Under the siding, it’s common for a home to sustain some type of structural damage. This type of damage can lead to severe water damage, if rainwater leaks through cracks around windows. Water can also reach your drywall, causing catastrophic damage as the result. During the initial inspection, you can ask one of our contractors to check for any potential structural damage that may be hiding behind the old siding.

The Siding Installation Process


The size of a home will play an important role in any type of home improvement project, but it’s a major factor in a siding project. The type of terrain, number of stories, and the size of your home will all impact the installation timeline. Our contractors will address all of these variables with you ahead of your final quote.

On average, a homeowner should anticipate a siding installation to take approximately 10 to 14 days. If the siding you choose requires painting, this can add three to four additional days to the project’s timeline. This type of lengthy timeframe will include the removal of any existing siding, preparation, adding the insulation, the installation of the new siding, and any final touches that are needed, such as trim work.

Preparing Your House for Siding InstallationLike any type of home renovation project, there are some ways you can prepare your home for siding installation.

  • Tie back or trim shrubbery or trees near your home.
  • Mow the grass short before the installation process begins. Short grass can make it much easier for our contractors to use a magnetic nail Finder and recover staples or nails that go astray during the installation process. Make sure you remove any gardening equipment, patio furniture, or potted plants.
  • During removal and installation, the interior walls of a house will shake. Be sure to remove any valuables, shelves, or pictures that may be at risk of falling.
  • A dumpster will be delivered to collect debris and old siding. Make sure that your driveway is clear to allow the contractors easier access to your house.
  • We also recommend parking your vehicles away from the house to minimize the chance of them being damaged by any falling debris.
  • For safety reasons, keep all pets and children away from the work area.
  • Ahead of the installation process, it’s also important to discuss downspouts and shutters with one of our contractors. Ask if you should have these fixtures removed in advance, or if our workers will prep the area around doors and windows.


Siding Installation Steps

Before the new siding can be installed, the existing siding must be removed. During this process, our contractor and team will assess the walls beneath, looking for signs of rot and water damage.

  • Wall Prep -The stability and appearance of your siding can depend on the integrity of the wall beneath it. Our contractors will repair and assess the walls so your siding will be correctly installed.
  • Insulation – Once the old siding has been removed, one of our contractors will ensure your home is properly insulated.
  • Installing the New Siding – The siding is now ready to be installed. If your siding requires paint, this can take three to four days to apply, once the siding has been installed.


Factors That Can Impact Siding Installation

Regardless of how well prepared you and your contractor are for a siding installation project, unforeseeable issues can be uncovered, or delays can occur. These issues can add additional costs and may extend the project’s timeline.

Some common siding obstacles include:

  • Evidence of asbestos
  • Rot
  • Water damage
  • Sheathing repair

While one of our contractors will thoroughly inspect a house’s exterior during the initial consultation, it can be very difficult to identify lurking problems before we have removed the existing siding. Asbestos, which is a very toxic and heat-resistant material, can be especially difficult to identify in siding. Once the old siding is removed, an installer may discover water damage or areas that need immediate repair. This can add to the cost of the siding project.

Sheathing Repair

Once we have begun a project, one of our contractors may find that the sheathing under the old siding has become damaged. The sheathing is rather inexpensive; however, it does require additional time to replace and install, which can also impact your budget.
