A Springtime Guide to Updating Your Siding

A Blooming Guide to Spring Siding Updates for a Fresh, Vibrant Look! 

As the cold winter days fade away, spring emerges as the perfect season for home improvement projects. One area that can significantly enhance your home’s curb appeal is updating the siding.  We spoke with Rich Savidge, one of our Project Consultants about how upgrading your siding will boost your home’s aesthetics, improve energy efficiency, and enhance protection against the elements.   Springtime is the ideal season to give your home a fresh new look.  Read along to hear tips from the expert Rich, himself. 

Milder Weather & Preparation for the Summer Months

Mild weather that is common in the springtime offers more favorable conditions for the installation process, ensuring that the materials can be applied with optimal precision and efficiency. The moderate temperatures are conducive to proper curing and adhesion, allowing for a seamless finish. Additionally, milder weather reduces the risk of complications associated with extreme heat or cold, promoting a more durable and long-lasting result. Undertaking a siding upgrade in pleasant weather not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home but also ensures that the installation process is smooth, efficient, and yields lasting benefits for the overall durability and performance of your property.

Enhanced Curb Appeal & Trendy Siding Colors

Spring is a season associated with renewal and freshness. Updating your siding during this time can give your home a vibrant and inviting appearance, boosting its curb appeal and making it stand out in the neighborhood.  The exterior of your house is the first impression visitors and passersby have, and a fresh, modern siding can transform the overall aesthetic dramatically. 

Whether opting for a contemporary color palette, textured materials, or innovative designs, an upgraded siding brings a renewed vibrancy and sophistication to your property. “Deep grays and blues with white accents are becoming more and more common when it comes to siding,” said Rich.  

The enhanced curb appeal not only reflects positively on your home’s visual allure but also contributes to the neighborhood’s overall aesthetic. With upgraded siding, your house becomes a standout, making a lasting impression and boosting its overall market value. It is a simple yet impactful way to breathe new life into your home’s exterior and leave a lasting impression on all who encounter it.  

Increased Energy Efficiency

Upgrading your siding and windows goes beyond aesthetic improvements; it plays a crucial role in enhancing energy efficiency. Modern siding materials, such as insulated vinyl or fiber cement, provide superior thermal resistance, acting as an effective barrier against external temperature fluctuations. By reducing heat transfer, updated siding helps maintain a consistent and comfortable indoor climate, reducing the strain on heating and cooling systems. This translates into lower energy consumption and utility bills. Additionally, advanced siding technologies often include features like reflective coatings or insulation, further bolstering your home’s ability to retain or repel heat as needed. By investing in updated siding, you not only give your home a fresh and appealing exterior but also make a tangible contribution to energy conservation and cost savings in the long run.   

“Some of the siding options to consider when thinking about updating your siding are Ascend and Vinyl.  Ascend is a one-profile, durable composite PVC.  It requires little to no maintenance.   On the other hand, Vinyl siding has more than one profile to choose from, it has a good return on investment and also has little to no maintenance.   No matter what siding you choose for your home, we will make the homeowner’s vision a reality”, said Rich.  

Conclusion

Updating your siding in the spring is a rewarding investment that can enhance its aesthetic appeal, energy efficiency, and overall durability. With the right materials, tools, and planning, you can transform your home into a stylish and well-protected haven just in time to enjoy the warmer months. Embrace the season of renewal and give your home the makeover it deserves!
