4 Reasons to Replace Your Siding
Communities in central Illinois experience every weather extreme. From frigid below-zero temps in mid-winter… and sweltering humidity during high summer… to the violence of a late spring thunderstorm… through it all, your home takes a beating.
If your siding is starting to look a little tired, faded or cracked, it’s time to consider calling in a professional. With over 32 years in business, KAS Windows is staffed with the best crew of siding replacement in Mattoon.
Why Replace Your Siding?
Vinyl siding is easy to care for, and comes in every color imaginable. Wood or cedar shake siding is beautiful and textural. Stucco offers an iconic southwestern or romantic English country look. But, no siding material lasts forever. Siding should receive a top-to-bottom professional inspection once a year to diagnose major or hidden issues. Homeowners should also inspect the building exterior regularly, especially after wind storms or a rapid freeze or thaw.
What to Look For:
· Small holes or cracks
· Dry rot
· Water damage or mold
· Surface bubbles or warping from heat
· Fading & discoloration
· Loose or missing boards/surface material
Are your energy bills higher this year than they were a few years ago? Add new, energy-efficient siding, and spend less money on heating and cooling costs. Not only that, you’ll be protecting the planet by using long-lasting, sustainable siding products. Choose siding with a long life-cycle and high R-Value to make the most of your renovation budget.
Is your home still the hottest color on the market… for 1985? Chances are, if your siding is still mauve pink or dusty blue, other features need replacing, too! Consider upgrading windows, sliding glass patio doors and gutters at the same time. These features all require siding removed for installation.
Putting your home up for sale? Don’t watch potential buyers drive away (quickly) with one look at your cracked and faded siding! They’ll assume the rest of the home suffers from neglect as well. Many buyers aren’t interested in ‘project’ homes, and would rather pay a premium to have the work done already. Fresh, modern siding is the perfect first impression to reassure buyers they can move in and relax from day one.
