Siding on a home is like a protective bandaid on a wound. It helps keep the damaging atmosphere out, and the goodness in. Siding works to guard the home against damaging winds, and extreme summer temperatures, and a layer of protection in keeping the family and possessions safe inside. When siding fails to do its job, moisture can seep in, animals and find homes, and interior drafts can happen.
How much will new siding cost in Birmingham? This is a common first question when considering new siding. Super Roofers is the ideal company to reach out to in answering that question, and any others you may have. The average cost of new siding can range from $15,000 to $60,000. This is a huge gap. This is because each house is a different size, the homeowner’s choice of material, the cost of removing the old exterior, and the installation fees of the contractor.
What are four benefits of replacing your home’s exterior with siding?
New siding helps to keep the home looking nice for longer, with less maintenance than needing to paint every few years. The options of colors are so wide and varied, it’s almost as if the homeowner has a blank canvas to create a beautiful home with style and sophistication.
Any holes or damaged areas can be easily covered up with new siding installed. The contractor can add additional insulation if needed to keep the home at a more comfortable temperature year-round.
Structural Integrity of the Home
Some siding offers resistance to moisture which offers an excellent barrier against the wood rotting underneath or water pooling in the window sills. Be sure to speak with your trusted roofing and siding contractor about this factor.
Increased Home Value
Replacing the siding of a home can offer up to 80% of the return on investment when the house is sold. That is a huge percentage! That alone is a consideration for upgrading the exterior of your home.
