Siding Replacement Services in McLean, NY

A house is beautiful and fresh when it is new but, over the years, the sun, rain, snow, and wind take a toll on exterior finishes such as the roof, siding, doors and windows, decks, and roof gutter systems. The house starts to look worn and old.

Siding gets faded in some areas and stained in others. The material siding is made of might start to break down and be less effective. Rather than going to the trouble to sell the house and buy another one in a different neighbourhood, why not hire a contractor who offers siding replacement services and other exterior renovations to make the house look new without moving out of a neighbourhood you like?

Is Siding Replacement a Good Investment?

When you shop carefully to get the correct type of siding for the home and the area you live in, new siding is a good investment. Choosing the right Siding Service is also important. New siding can improve the curb appeal of a house. New siding can also make a home easier to market and sell for more money. New siding, when selected and installed correctly, makes a home look new again. It is a chance to change the color of the house to something more appealing to the owner and that fits in with the neighbourhood better.

Signs That The House Siding Needs to be Replaced

You may wonder how to tell when the house siding needs to be replaced. It is a big investment, so you want to be sure the cost is justified. One way to know is to call in a Siding Replacement company representative to inspect the siding and tell you if it can be repaired or should be replaced. Obviously, if the siding can be repaired, it will mean a lot less money spent. Many Siding Services offer siding repair as well as total siding replacement. Another way to decide whether to replace the home siding is to look for these signs of wear and damage:

  • Cracks on the siding surfaces
  • Mold growth on the siding that won’t wash off or leaves stains
  • Holes in the siding
  • Sagging siding panels
  • Extensive damage on the siding
  • Peeling paint or signs of siding rotting

When the siding on a house looks old and damaged, the house looks unkempt and old. But, that is not a reason to sell and move on if you like the neighbours and the location of the house. If the interior of the house is in good shape and meets the family’s needs, replacing the siding might be the best option.

Choose a Reputable Exterior Renovation Contractor

Take the time to choose the correct contractor for your siding replacement. The contractor should specialize in siding replacement, carry high-quality, well-known brands of siding, be licensed and insured, and have good ratings online and with past customers. Choosing a company such as Artcraft Home Improvements is a good start to the project.

Getting two or three bids is also a good way to make sure you are paying a fair price for the project. Don’t always go for the cheapest price, but compare price and what the bid includes to get the best all-over bid. Choose a company that also offers other exterior renovation services because, if the siding is worn out, the roof, doors, and windows might also need replacing in the near future.

What Shape is the Roof In?

You might want to have the roof inspected if it is as old as the siding or at least 15 to 20 years old. Asphalt shingles last this long, and other materials, such as metal, slate, wood shake, and tile, can last from 25 to 50 years. However, they still may sustain damage and need repairs. At the same time the siding is being replaced, consider asking for a better price to also have the roof repaired or replaced. A company that offers a Roofing Service, as well as siding replacement, can save the homeowner time and money.
