Unfortunately, this also means that your siding is just as vulnerable to wear and tear as the rest of the homes exterior, making it not impossible for it to need replacing. But how do you know its time for a replacement?</p></li><li><p>A HOMEOWNERS GUIDE TO SIDING REPLACEMENT</p><p>SIGNS YOU NEED NEW SIDING</p><p>WHEN REPAIRS ARE NO LONGER ENOUGHSiding repairs are more affordable to carry out than total replacements, but only up to a certain degree. When siding panels become too old, they are likelier to break down and develop problems, prompting you to do a fix even after repairs were recently done. In the long run, it is possible to end up having done so many fixes that total repair cost are comparable to or even greater than what you would have spent replacing your siding.</p><p>WHEN YOUR WALLS ARE ALWAYS DAMPThere are cases when siding panels are in good shape, but somehow water has found its way through, potentially damaging the wall and insulation on the other side. This could mean that your siding is not suitable for your homes current needs and will have to be replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage.</p><p>WHEN ITS NO LONGER ENERGY-EFFICIENT Its not just foam insulation in your attic that helps your home stay energy-efficient throughout the year. Siding also contributes, reducing air leakage to ease your HVAC systems load, which will translate to savings on your energy bill.</p></li><li><p>A HOMEOWNERS GUIDE TO SIDING REPLACEMENT</p><p>SIGNS YOU NEED NEW SIDING</p><p>WHEN YOU NO LONGER LIKE HOW IT LOOKSYour siding is supposed to help enhance your homes curb appeal.

Here are a few considerations to take note of to help you find the right siding option for you: </p></li><li><p>A HOMEOWNERS GUIDE TO SIDING REPLACEMENT</p><p>CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIDING FOR YOUR HOME</p><p>DURABILITYYou want something tough enough to withstand constant abuse from the weather and other external factors. Metal siding, for instance, has always boasted great durability but steel siding in particular features incredible ruggedness to deliver protection like no other against wind, rain, ice or hail. Steel siding is also thicker and heavier than aluminum siding, allowing it to not just withstand the elements but be less prone to denting as well.</p><p>MAINTENANCEAll types of siding will benefit from regular maintenance but some will require more TLC than others. Does it need repainting? How do you clean it? What kind of upkeep will it need to keep performing well? Steel siding, for one, is colorfast, meaning it wont fade or peel, letting you avoid the inconveniences and costs of constant repainting.</p></li><li><p>A HOMEOWNERS GUIDE TO SIDING REPLACEMENT</p><p>CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIDING FOR YOUR HOME</p><p>PRICEInstead of simply going for what will meet your budget, you have to look for siding that offers you the best overall value. This means factoring in price in relation to the advantages that a certain siding option can let you enjoy. Take steel siding, for example. With a lifespan of at least 50 years, it definitely assures you that youll be able to make the most out of the investment youre going to make. Dont just fixate on price alone. Again, it should be about what will give you the most value as a homeowner. </p><p>STYLEDo you want vertical or horizontal panels? Do you prefer a series of smaller panels or rows of wider, bigger ones? How about texture or color? Feel free to choose whatever you like but make sure you look for siding that will complement the rest of your homes exteriors. There are a lot of siding options available to you so use that to your advantage. If youre having a hard time choosing, dont hesitate to ask your local siding contractor for assistance.</p></li><li><p>A HOMEOWNERS GUIDE TO SIDING REPLACEMENT</p><p>SIGNS YOU NEED NEW SIDING</p><p>JONES &amp; ASSOCIATES3801 Globe Ave. Lubbock ,TX 79404</p><p>806-686-1380(800) 658-2060</p><p>www.TheJonesBoys.com</p><p>http://www.TheJonesBoys.com</p></li></ul>
