How Siding Affects Curb Appeal

How Siding Affects Curb Appeal


Your home’s exterior is not only what gives your visitors their first impressions, but it can also have a big impact on your home’s overall market value. This latter part is crucial if you’re thinking about selling your home in the coming months.

How Siding Affects Curb Appeal

But even if you’re not planning on selling, refreshing your home’s exterior by having new siding installed will not only help improve its looks, but it will also help make your home more energy-efficient. Here are just a few of the ways you can boost curb appeal with new siding.

Cuts Down on Maintenance

New vinyl siding gives your home a crisp and clean finish that is extremely easy to maintain. Vinyl siding is durable and resistant to unsightly problems like dents, rust, and mold growth. If you’re tired of spending weekends in the spring and fall trying to get the moss and mildew off your siding, or you don’t want to deal with the hassle of repainting your entire home every five years, then simply replacing your old siding with new vinyl may be the ideal solution.

Vinyl Doesn’t Rot Like Wood

Homes with wood exteriors are typically difficult and expensive to maintain, and when the wood starts rotting (which it eventually will), it can make a home look decrepit. Vinyl siding, on the other hand, is much more cost-effective than wood, and it doesn’t come with all the maintenance needs. Plus, it won’t rot or change colors over time.

Vinyl Is More Durable Than Stucco

Stucco is a popular exterior finish option for homes in many areas across the country. But stucco is only great if it never develops a crack or chip. The reason is that once stucco needs to be repaired, getting the color and texture of the new stucco to match the old stucco is nearly impossible.

So, when a repair has been made, it can be easily seen from the curb. In fact, the eye is automatically drawn to it because the difference is so noticeable. In the event that a piece of vinyl siding needs to be replaced, finding a perfect match is easy and the repair will be virtually undetectable.
