Is there a section of your siding that is rotted or worn-out? Damaged siding can really cause problems for homeowners including water, air, dirt, and pests getting inside of the home. None of these conditions are favorable no matter what time of year it is and leads many to question whether they should repair the damaged siding or have it replaced? Although it may seem easier to repair the bad area, this is not going to be the most beneficial solution. The experts in James Hardie® siding at McHenry Remodeling would like to share the reasons why replacing siding with James Hardie® is a better option than repairing it.
Eliminate the maintenance work
If you repair your damaged siding this time, it will probably not be the last time. Rotting wood will affect even the sound wood and slowly but surely you will continue to need repairs. However, with James Hardie® siding you can avoid that. In fact, the only maintenance you will need to worry about is simply spraying the side of the home with a hose.
Increase your energy savings
A damaged piece of siding will let airflow through your home. In the summer, this means that hot air will circulate and in the winter, cold air will flow inside. A home that is not properly sealed off from the outside elements will result in a much higher cost in your energy bill. Both heating and cooling costs will greatly decrease when you opt to go with James Hardie® siding replacement. Your home will feel much more comfortable in both extremes of summer and winter and your energy bills will go down to boot!
Increase the curb appeal and value of your home
Another advantage of replacing the siding on your home is that you can increase the curb appeal and value of your home. James Hardie® siding is made to look like wood but maintains a clean, well-kept look that lasts for years to come. You will be able to watch your neighbors continuously repair their siding while yours looks just as great as day one.
Clearly, the benefits of siding replacement greatly outweigh the alternative of a siding repair. There is no better time than now to make that investment that will keep your home looking great for years. Simply contact us today to learn more and to get started on replacing your home’s siding.
