Siding Questions

Siding Questions:

In today’s post our panel of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss some commonly asked siding questions we receive. We also give homeowners some tips about trims and sidings.

Some Basic Knowledge:

Basics

Our team here as diligently come up with a few basic siding questions. We see a lot of these during our work. In our expert opinion, these siding questions wen unanswered can become a cause of concern for homeowners later on.

1. How to Choose Your Siding Color:

Color Siding Questions

This is one of the most frequent siding questions we receive. Our usual advice regarding color siding questions go for symmetry. Homeowners should choose colors that compliment the neighborhood colors as well as their own home’s colors. Color siding questions are also important because they reflect on homeowner’s personal taste and preferences as well.

2. How Long Do Sidings Last?

Roof Life Expectancy

This is also one of the popular siding questions. Homeowners can expect our sidings to last at least 30 years but most likely, they will outlast that number it will outlast you. We see very few siding repair jobs if they have been installed properly. One quick advice from our team is to pick a siding that is optimal for home’s climate conditions. This ensure a greater lifespan.

3. Will Siding Require Maintenance?

Proper Shingles Installation

The easy answer to it is this: maybe. Nothing on the outside of any home is ever maintenance free. That said, sidings require bare minimum attention. Homeowners can easily wash the sidings and they might require new paint after 10-15 years. But that is about the extent of it.

4. Are Sidings Expensive to Repair or Replace?

Roof Financing

This is also one of the common siding questions we receive. Obviously costs matter a lot to both contractors and customers. In general, the price varies with the scope of the project. If it is just a piece or a part of siding, things can get expensive. That is because such work requires finesse and might end up causing more damage. Our team advises that whenever you need sidings job done, have a complete install.

5. Should I Replace Windows With Sidings?

Window Siding

Finally, we often get asked if sidings and windows need to be replaced together. Our team advises for it. We think it is best if homeowners replace their windows and sidings at the same time. The reason is simple: installation at same time allows flashing installation and also stops any possible water penetration.

Siding is the New Black

Siding has become a very popular choice for the exterior of both homes and sheds,

and it’s not hard to see why.  New siding can add a pop of color to your home, make the exterior look new again, and also offers a great maintenance free alternative to other options.


sidingWith aluminum or vinyl siding, you never have to worry about painting again.  Long lasting and durable, a quick spray down with the hose is usually all you need to make it look new again.

Siding will also add curb appeal to your home.  Not only will you enjoy pulling up in the driveway every day, it will be appealing for potential buyers as well.

Having new siding installed is also the perfect time to add more insulation to your home.  The insulation will be placed on the exterior of your home, then will be completely covered up with the siding.  When your home is better insulated, you will lose less heating and cooling from inside, and it will lessen the drafts in your home.  This means you will have to spend less money on your energy bills each month.
