Waterproof, Windproof and Weatherproof: The Perfect Roof for Your Climate

Why You Should Replace Your Siding Before Warm Weather Arrives

by Edgar Cruz

Summer is a wonderful time to spend with your friends and family, suntan at the beach or lake, have weekend BBQs and gatherings, and really just do anything outdoors thanks to the longer days and warmer temperatures. However, because of the warmer temperatures, your home can suffer, as can your wallet. Because of this, you need to make sure that you invest in quality siding before summer arrives. Keep reading to learn three important reasons why you should upgrade your siding before the warm weather arrives.

Insulation

During the winter, you put on a jacket to keep yourself warm. It essentially serves as a protective insulating barrier for your body for the cold elements. During the summer (and even the winter), your siding serves as a protective, insulating barrier for your home, which helps in the regulation of the interior temperature. You may not realize it, but siding does get old as the years go by. As the siding ages, it can crack, leak, etc., resulting in higher utility bills. With summer coming up, you should focus on improving the energy efficiency of your home by investing in high-quality siding.

Humidity Levels

Humidity levels during the summer can result in moisture getting trapped in a number of places, including behind your home's siding. Unfortunately, this can lead to numerous issues that you do not want to deal with. For instance, moisture buildup behind your siding can create the perfect environment for the growth of mold and mildew, which can then lead to the discoloration of the exterior of your home, damage the structural integrity of the house, and cause health problems for those living in the home. By investing in new siding before the warm weather arrives, the exterior of the home has a fresh, clean slate to start the summer.

Value

The real estate market seems to be most popular during the spring and summer. Therefore, if you plan to attempt to sell your home during this popular time of the year, you may want to consider how you can boost the curb appeal and property value of your home before you place it on the market. One way to do this is to invest in siding installation services. Plus, homebuyers will appreciate knowing that they are buying a home that has new, quality siding.

Waterproof, Windproof and Weatherproof: The Perfect Roof for Your Climate

Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Wendy, and after traveling through many parts of the world as I worked on a degree in anthropology with a minor in architecture, I learned a lot. I saw how people took different approaches to the same issue (putting a roof on their home), but more importantly, I noticed how those approaches were dictated by the climate and culture in the area. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people in North America build roofs that are traditional rather than roofs that are the right fit for the climate. If you are interested in exploring the latter idea, I'm here to help. These posts look at the best way to get a roof that protects you from the elements. Explore, enjoy and send your friends over to my blog. Thanks!
