When you look at your home, do you feel good about what you see? The truth is it’s easy to go through life kind of on autopilot. We go in and out of our houses without really seeing them. The little dings and damages that occur over the course of time go unnoticed. Then, all of a sudden, you realize that compared to other houses in the neighborhood, your house doesn’t look so nice.
The feeling of distress or upset you might feel upon making this realization is the first sign it might be time for an upgrade. You deserve a home that you’re proud of. You deserve to feel happy when you look at your house. That can mean it’s time for new siding.
Even the best vinyl siding will not last forever. The expected useful life of modern high quality vinyl siding is between thirty and fifty years. Vinyl siding from back in the day doesn’t necessarily last as long – especially if it’s been exposed to harsh seaside conditions or extreme winter weather.
After 20 Years, It’s Time to Ask Questions
If your siding is more than twenty years old, you really should assess its overall condition critically. Is there cracks and breaks in the surface of the siding where light, moisture, and cold can get through? Is the siding sagging or warped? Is the color still strong and true, or does the house look tired and sad?
Your answers to these questions will help you determine if you need new siding installed. Vinyl siding can be installed vertically or horizontally. Here in the South Boston area, the Batten Board style of vinyl siding is very popular. Also popular – vinyl siding installed with shingled accents.
One of the nice things about upgrading the siding is it allows you to make a style statement with your home. Perhaps you’re ready for a bold color. Perhaps it’s time to give the house some classic style. The choice is always yours. Choose happiness.
