3 Things To Know About Siding

If your exterior is in desperate need of a makeover, then you should consider having it professionally fitted with siding. Siding won't just make your house look nice, but it is really durable as well. But before you pick just any old siding that fits within your budget, this article will take a closer look at three specific things for you to know about siding. Are you ready to read on to learn some more? 

1. There Are Different Styles

You may think that there is only one type of siding, vinyl siding, but you would be sorely mistaken. In fact, there are tons of different types of siding including wooden siding and even metal siding. Depending on your budget and the style you are going for, you and your siding installation company can take a closer look at your options. If you want more of a cape cod or beachy look, then you may want to go with Shaker style shingles because they are wooden and will give you that chic look. If you are going for something more modern, you may want to do something like a vertical patterned metal siding. 

2. It Can Be Put Over Most Things

Whether you currently have a brick home or even a stucco home, you can usually have sign put over the top of it. The only thing that you can't put siding on top of is existing siding. If you have siding on your house that needs to be replaced, you will have to have it taken off, and then your siding installation company will place the new siding on the underlayment. But if you do have brick or stucco, it should be fairly easy for your siding installation company to just put siding over the top of it without having to do much else to it. 

3. It Is Durable

Whether you live by the beach or you live in the snowcapped mountains, siding can handle basically any type of weather as long as it is installed correctly. When you are having it installed, make sure that they are putting the right underlayment on top of the house before they place the siding; that way it's protected from water damage. 

As you can see, there are many great things to know about siding as protection for your home's exterior. To learn more, contact a siding installation service near you.
