Reducing Heating and Cooling Cost – When the siding on your home becomes damaged it will cause leakage of air both from the inside as well as from the outside. This means, that you will be spending significantly more in heating or cooling your home during the different seasons. Poor siding may even cause you to replace your furnace. With new siding you can keep a comfortable temperature in your house at all times at a lower price. Talk about long-term savings!
Protection from Pests – Under the siding on your home is insulation which protects the interior from the exterior temperature and humidity while still allowing the home to breathe. When the siding starts to deteriorate or become damaged the gaps in the siding will allow insects to sneak through and enter your home. New siding will have just the right sized airways for the home to breathe without letting unwanted critters through.
