Important Factors to Consider When Choosing Siding Material

Your choice of siding has a major effect on your home’s appearance, weather resistance and durability. That’s why you need to consider several factors before choosing a new siding for your home. You need to think about a siding product’s durability, energy efficiency, beauty and water resistance. The Carpenter’s Touch, the top siding contractor in our area, explains more: 

Siding Material

• Beauty: Your siding determines your home’s appearance because it is the largest part of your exterior. It features your home’s main color scheme, and its design and profile creates your home’s character. When choosing your siding options, you need to think about the available colors and how well the siding matches your home’s architectural style. Fortunately, our fiber cement siding, cedar siding and vinyl siding come in a wide range of colors.

• Energy Efficiency: Your siding creates a thermal envelope around your home that prevents energy from escaping. You need to choose siding products that have excellent R-values to properly insulate your home and save energy. As a top cedar, fiber cement and vinyl siding contractor, we made sure that all of our siding options can come with insulation. Our siding can maximize your savings on energy bills over the year. In addition, there are siding products with built-in insulation that also improves the product’s durability.

• Durability: Lastly, you need to make sure that your siding provides excellent protection against moisture and that it is strong enough to withstand local weather conditions. Your choice of siding needs to resist wear, tear and temperature shifts from your location’s climate. The Carpenter’s Touch uses only the best products for our customers.
