Most people don’t know that siding is actually your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Whatever mother nature throws at your home, whether it’s snow, rain, wind, or even freezing rain, siding is almost guaranteed to endure it. This is why strong, properly-installed siding can greatly improve the functionality and overall health of your home. There’s nothing worse for a homeowner to be dealing with than the likes of water damage, for example, which can wreak havoc on your home’s interior if not treated properly. Siding is not only helpful but necessary in keeping outdoor elements from entering your home, and this is immensely important during the colder months of the year when snow and ice can make their way through damaged and/or deteriorated siding.
What homeowner wouldn’t want to spend less on energy bills? As it turns out, by investing in strong, durable siding, you might even see your energy bills go down. In the colder months, when the weather can become dauntingly cold (especially here in New England), it’s natural for homeowners to reach for the thermostat. While this certainly helps us become warm temporarily, in some cases, keeping your home warm takes more than what meets the eye. In fact, your siding (and even your roof) plays a critical role in the ventilation, and overall energy efficiency of your home. By investing in strong siding, you can help keep your interior at a comfortable temperature year-round, whether it’s winter or summer.
