Durability Siding materials must be able to stand up to typical weather, storm hazards, pests and impacts. Weather: Rain, snow and humidity can cause damage to siding if the material absorbs too much moisture, causing rotting, mildew, mold and warping.
If the material can absorb any water, it will need to be regularly sealed with paint or stain and it will need to be caulked to prevent water from getting under the siding and damaging the wall behind it. Extreme cold or heat can also cause damage if the product becomes brittle or melts.
Make sure to select a material that suits your local climate. Storms: Storms with high winds can rip siding off of a home. If you live in an area with high winds, make sure to choose a product that attaches to the walls in a highly wind resistant manner. Fire: Exterior fires can damage many types of siding, and flammable siding provides fuel to fires.
If you live in an area where wildfires are common, choose a fire-resistant product to help protect your home in the event of a fire. Pests: Bugs and small creatures are attracted to many materials.
Choosing an inorganic product will reduce the likelihood that your siding will be damaged by pests. Impact: Anything that hits the side of your home from a baseball to hail can damage or dent your siding. Reinforced or slightly flexible siding will be less likely to dent when hit.
Warranty Most siding products have some kind of warranty. Transferable: Some companies offer a transferable warranty. If you plan to sell your home in the future, choose a brand with a transferable warranty to increase your resale value.
If you sell your house, make sure to notify the warranty company to ensure the warranty remains in effect for the new owner.
Timeframe: Although many companies offer so-called lifetime warranties, these warranties are actually only effective for a certain number of years. Make sure you understand what the warranty covers and exactly how long it is effective. Prorated: Some warranties cover the full replacement or repair cost as long as they are in effect.
Prorated warranties cover a percentage of the cost that decreases over time. It is quite common for a warranty to cover the full cost for the original owner but become a prorated warranty if it is transferred to a new homeowner. Sustainability A sustainable or green product is usually manufactured in the most environmentally-friendly way possible and helps the homeowner use less energy after it is installed.
Insulation: Many newer siding products can increase the R-value of exterior walls, which makes them much more energy efficient. R-value is a measure of thermal resistance; the higher the R-value, the less hot or cold air will penetrate the surface. Manufacturing: Most manufacturers discuss their sustainability efforts on their website.
Price: If you plan to install siding yourself, make sure to include any accessories or sealants that will be required to complete the project as well as any delivery fees. If you hire a professional contractor or installer, they should give you a binding quote before they begin the project. Resale value: Modern and well-maintained siding can add a significant amount to the value of your home when selling it.
Research indicates that sellers recover between 78 and 92 percent of the original cost of siding when selling their house. Insurance benefits: Some insurance companies offer a discount on homeowners policies if the siding offers a particular safety benefit, like fire resistance.
Energy savings: Homeowners can save money on their energy bills if they replace their existing siding with a more energy efficient one. Maintenance Many people replace their existing siding with a product that requires less maintenance. Talk to friends or neighbors with different types of siding and ask how often their siding needs to be painted, stained, washed or caulked. Cost: Consider the cost of upkeep when selecting a new siding product.
A more expensive siding that requires less maintenance will be cheaper in the long run. Labor: Consider how much work is involved in maintaining the siding. What is siding made from?
