The exterior siding is one of the most prominent components of your home. Aside from boosting your home’s curb appeal, it also protects your home against the exterior elements. With help from your roofing system and gutter guards, your siding also prevents moisture and other issues from affecting your home, which is why it’s important to take care of your siding unit.
In this post, Patriot Gutters, the leading siding and gutter installation specialist, shares how your siding can affect your home’s interior.
Protects Your Home Against Water Damage
While some homeowners might think that their siding is only there for aesthetic purposes, this isn’t the case as it prevents rain and moisture from penetrating your home. Remember that rain and moisture can cause huge problems to your home’s interior and exterior, such as mold growth and structural failure. It also causes your studs and frames to rust quickly. This is why it’s important to call for regular siding maintenance to ensure that it’s in great condition.
Offers Great Energy Efficiency
Just like how gutter installation projects help shed water and increase your roof’s efficiency, your siding helps improve your home’s energy efficiency. Your siding acts as a protective insulating barrier against the elements which prevent drafts from entering your home. In turn, it improves your home’s energy efficiency by reducing your energy usage to make your home feel comfortable. It also reduces your home’s solar heat gain during the summer season which reduces your reliance on cooling units.
Before choosing a new siding, make sure that it fits your home’s architectural style, and your budget. You can consult our siding specialists to find the best siding options for your needs, and rest assured that we also have the skills and tools to properly install your siding unit.
