4 Common Siding Replacement Mistakes to Avoid
Your siding plays a key role in protecting your home from the elements and maintaining a comfortable temperature inside your living space. In today’s post, Vinylume discusses four common mistakes homeowners make when replacing their siding and explains how to avoid these pitfalls:
1. Sticking to the Only Material You Know
Do your due diligence when selecting the material for your new siding. Try to understand the unique features of each product while keeping your siding goals in mind. You must be fully aware of the strongest and weakest qualities of every solution to narrow down your choices and ultimately make an informed decision.
2. Ignoring Maintenance
A material with high life-cycle costs is usually not a good investment. Your long-term outlays will easily add up, exceeding your supposed initial savings. Fiber cement and vinyl siding products are popular choices with homeowners thanks to their minimal maintenance requirements. These materials are pre-finished, are UV-resistant, and never need repainting. Without demanding upkeep duties, you can save money, time, and energy.
3. Skimping on Experience
Hiring an experienced contractor ensures a successful installation. A company with a solid reputation guarantees flawless workmanship. Make sure your chosen contractor has the appropriate manufacturer certifications to prove they have undergone training for proper siding installation.
4. Skipping Powerful Warranties
Buying new siding is a big investment, so it only makes sense to protect your investment from premature failures in the future. Don’t just settle for manufacturer warranties; workmanship coverage is also essential.
