The siding is no doubt one of your home’s greatest defenses against the natural elements. Along with your roofing and gutters, your siding is meant to keep your home’s interior safe and intact against strong winds, rainfall, snow and hail. This spring, your siding will prevent the warm air and sunlight from entering your home’s interiors while ensuring the temperatures are cool and comfortable for you and your family. And with the right siding installed, your home will also have better energy efficiency! Kroll Construction tells more about the benefits:
Improved Comfort at Home
Your siding isn’t just a thin layer on the exterior; in fact, it can be great in keeping your home well-insulated. When you add your siding to other layers such as the existing insulation and interior walls, it helps keep your home cool during spring and summer. Your HVAC won’t need to operate as hard as needed to keep your interiors comfortable, which means you save more on your monthly energy bill.
Water Damage Prevention
When properly installed, your siding provides excellent waterproofing for your home. Aside from the roof, gutters, foundation, and landscaping, your siding is another layer of defense against incoming water. A replacement will be needed if your siding is already near the end of its lifespan, and it should be done by trusted siding and roofing contractors. If you’re already noticing increased moisture and humidity levels inside your home, have your siding checked for quality as soon as possible.
Better Energy Efficiency
Did you know that your siding also improves your home’s energy efficiency? Siding acts as a barrier that not only protects your home from the weather elements but also insulates its occupants. But it won’t be effective if your siding has deteriorated over time and hasn’t been maintained regularly. Signs of aging and cracks can allow drafts to enter your home, which will force your air conditioning to consume more energy to keep indoor temperatures comfortable.
