Discover the Reasons to Invest in New Home Siding

Siding plays a vital role in protecting your home structure against weather, but it also helps identify your personal design preferences. While well cared for siding can last a significant amount of time, it can present issues for the homeowner once it starts showing signs of damage. Here at Garlock-French, we understand the importance of appearance and maintaining the structural integrity of your home.

1. Enhanced Curb Appeal

The primary benefit to the design-conscious is likely the appearance. New siding is pristine, and it can make an old home look brand new. Depending on the color or style you choose, it can also add a bit of flair and personality to the exterior of your home. Replacing siding is one of the quickest ways to change the overall design of your house.

2. Increase Property Value

Did you know that switching out your siding can offer a return on investment of 81%? In addition to the benefit from a simple installation, installing new siding can also add to your home value because of the improved curb appeal. Realtors suggest that a polished exterior can add about 12% or better to a home’s overall value.

3. Opportunities for Repair

Old siding can often cover up existing structural damage. Therefore, when installing siding, it is possible to detect and repair any existing damage, again adding to the value of your home. 

4. Improve Energy Efficiency

When removing old siding, you have the option to increase insulation and choose a new color for the exterior of your home. If you select a lighter color, you can actually reduce your energy cost, and more robust insulation can lead to heating and cooling savings throughout the year. 

5. Less Work

While your old, tired siding might have required a paint touch-up year in and year out, brand new siding will not require as much work. In fact, new siding can typically go years without needing a touch-up.
