6 FAQs about Siding

Siding is an integral part of your home’s exterior. It helps protect it against weather elements like rain, snow, and heavy winds while keeping your home insulated. It also enhances the curb appeal of your house. However, you may lack the right knowledge when it comes to choosing and maintaining the siding for your home.

At Christopher Home Improvement, we take care of all your siding needs. Here, we have prepared a list of the most common questions about siding:

How do I know if my siding is in bad condition?

Siding is usually made of durable materials like vinyl; however, constant exposure to harsh weather can damage your siding. One way to ensure your siding is in good shape is to inspect it regularly and look for signs of rot, fungi, cracks, gaps, and swelling. If you have any of these signs, get your siding repaired or replaced by a professional contractor.

Why is residing essential?

If your siding has become old and is no longer functioning efficiently, it is time to replace your siding. New siding will enhance the curb appeal of your home’s exterior and also reduce the need for maintenance. Siding also protects your home against elements and keeps it insulated; therefore, a fully functional siding can help you save on energy bills.

Do I need to replace the moisture barrier?

The moisture barrier in your siding allows water vapor to pass through but prevents water from coming in. Without the moisture barrier, water can damage your home during rains and snowfall. When replacing the old siding, the moisture barrier may get torn in places, and it is essential to replace it along with the siding to ensure complete protection of your home.

Does siding installation damage affect the interiors?

Siding installations don’t cause any significant damage to your home’s exterior or interiors. However, like any construction job, there may be some tools and rattling, and some chippings may fall. It is better to remove the fragile items to prevent any damage.

Are there any design options?

You can find a lot of design options for your sidings that match your home’s exterior. You can add unique designs ranging from ultra-modern, traditional, Mediterranean, and hipster. You can also choose different materials like wood and vinyl to create the desired effect. Our siding experts can help you choose the right one for your home.

What about color options?

The color of your siding plays a crucial role in your home’s curb appeal. There are various colors available in the market you can choose from. However, too many choices can also lead to confusion. Take the help of our experts to choose the perfect color for your home.
