Deciding to replace your exterior siding with wood siding or another type of siding is one of the easiest ways to update and improve your home’s curb appeal. However, when you start the process of choosing new siding and a siding color, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed by all of the options available. Siding significantly impacts the look of your home and offers your house protection from the elements. Proper siding installation can dictate the longevity of your exterior siding, but the type of siding you choose will also make a big difference when it comes to improving the value of your home.
From prefinished wood siding to vinyl siding, every kind of exterior siding will require some level of maintenance. Additionally, different types of siding bring different benefits, such as length of longevity, cost, and ease of installation. Choosing your siding is not an easy decision to make, but with the wide variety of options available, every homeowner will certainly be able to find the right option for them.
How To Pick Exterior Siding For Your Home
As mentioned, there are lots of siding options and each presents a different mix of cost, reliability, ongoing maintenance, and environmental responsibility. Specifically, homeowners should consider each of the factors below.
Longevity – Not all siding products last forever, but some can last a very long time. For example, Siparila prefinished wood siding uses our Topcoat paint that protects wood siding against moisture and fungi and ensures the siding doesn’t require painting for 15 years.
Maintenance – Some exterior siding materials can require frequent maintenance, but it really comes down to choosing a high-quality product that is built to withstand wear and tear. Siparila’s prefinished wood siding comes with a Topcoat that is applied to the siding in a controlled factory environment, eliminating onsite application pitfalls like weather, humidity, and other environmental variations. This attention to detail makes Siparila’s Topcoat finish significantly stronger, reducing required maintenance.
Cost – As with any home renovation project, your exterior siding project will most likely have a budget. You will want to compare the overall cost of the siding investment versus how long the siding may last. This is where product quality and how different products are made comes into play. Be sure to do your research before you make any decisions.
Environmental – Some exterior siding materials may not be as eco-friendly as others, and if this factor is important to you, choosing wood siding over vinyl is certainly a better choice. When you’re sourcing wood products like prefinished wood siding, find out specific details about forest certification and if the products support and preserve the environment. Siparila chooses to offer prefinished wood siding that optimizes natural resources and supports the environment.
Installation – Even with the best siding selected, siding installation can be a huge factor in how long siding lasts and how much repair work it will need in the future. Siparila’s end-matched panels and tongue and groove paneling make siding installation easy, and our fixed length panels eliminate human error and installation mistakes. Additionally, Spiralia’s prefinished wood siding has hidden nail heads on each plank that help to prevent water damage while creating a streamlined appearance.
