Rejuvenate Your Home with New Siding
Siding not only impacts the look of the exterior of your home, but is often overlooked as a contributor to its overall levels of health, safety and comfort. The siding of your home can impact everything from your energy bills to the presence of mold. That’s because siding is part of your home’s “building envelope,” the physical barrier that separates the inside and outside of the home through seemingly disparate elements like insulation, roofing, foundation and flooring.
A healthy building envelope increases the energy efficiency of your home by regulating the flow of air, light, heat, water and noise. If you’re siding isn’t performing properly, it can make it difficult to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, free of mold, and impenetrable to intruders.
The good news is that we can not only replace your siding, but make sure it is part of a healthy building envelope and increases the value and beauty of your home.
What are the Signs & Symptoms of a Siding Problem?
If your heating and cooling bills are high, that’s a good sign that part of your building envelope is compromised and your siding may be to blame. With a quick walk around your home and few taps on the existing siding, any of the following indicators are a sign that you may need new siding:
Mold, Fungus or Mildew
Holes or Warping
Cracks or Bubbles
