The siding, or wall cladding, is an influential element in curb appeal. It also affects how well your home will perform in regard to durability, longevity and energy efficiency. So, what better way to upgrade your property than to remodel the exterior with a brand new siding? Apart from being an important investment, the task entails careful planning and decision-making. To help you make the most of your project, there are some tips you should consider:
1. Look for Inspiration
What home styles or colors do you find most appealing to the eyes? What styles do you prefer? You can hit up Google or skim through pages of home improvement magazines to help you decide. If you prefer a more personal approach, you may drive around your neighborhood to give you a sense of authentic alternatives.
2. Write Up a Budget
Before you start selecting siding materials, whether classic cedar or engineered wood, you have to determine your budget first. This step is to figure out which items you can afford without breaking the bank. A siding budget can either come from on-hand money or bank loans. Either way, you have to consider the effect it will have on your future monthly expenses.
3. Choose the Material
The most exciting part of a siding project is finding the material you want to use. An exterior remodel opens up an array of options, from natural wood to synthetic materials, such as vinyl or fiber cement. Apart from the price, some of the things you have to consider are ease of maintenance, durability, appearance and effect on the environment.
