Outdoor remodeling and sidings
Outdoor remodeling is often done when a house is set to be sold. Most of the outdoor remodeling projects dominate the list that offers the biggest bang for your buck. They offer the largest return because a potential home sale can be made or broken on the exterior alone, real estate agents say.
Sidings are the best way to add definition, color, and texture to your house. However, it’s not just to curb appeal and make your house aesthetically pleasing. Installing sidings can also protect your home from harsh elements. While the looks of your house is important, you also want the material’s durability and its ability to resist water. The most expensive siding material is not worth it if it cannot even hold up to the elements outside and would require constant replacing and/or maintenance.
So what are your options when it comes to your siding material for your outdoor remodeling?
1. Vinyl siding
Vinyl siding is the number one choice in residential construction in the United States. It is not only durable and easy to maintain but it’s also the most cost-effective. It can last for up to 30 years. Simply give it a wash a couple of times a year and you’re good. The material is also very customizable with a lot of colors available. Additionally, it is easy to install — requiring only a few tools one can buy from a hardware store. Installing vinyl can help you recoup up to 83% of your cost when you sell it.
2. wood siding
Wood siding is one of the more expensive options. With its price comes unmatched appearance and durability. Depending on the material, a wooden siding can last for up to 100 years when properly maintained. Such maintenance can be in a form of staining or painting once in a few years to prevent weather damages and insect attacks.
3. masonry siding
Genuine bricks are used to be fired clay but nowadays the most commonly available option is stone siding made from a veneer. Stone veneer is popular because of its long lifespan of 25 years or more. Stone veneer is easy to maintain and is extremely resistant to mold and mildew caused by excess moisture. Because of its expensive cost, some stone veneer siding is only used as an accent rather than the whole house. This kind of design appeals to individuals who want their home to look like a timeless classic.
