The Importance of Siding
The siding of a house can be viewed as a house’s skin. It makes up the majority of a home’s exterior, providing a house with its general appearance. It is for this reason that faded, damaged, or old siding can greatly depreciate not only the physical appeal of a house, but it’s value as well.
One trait of a house’s siding that is often overlooked is that it can greatly affect the energy costs of heating and cooling a home. A siding that is thin, has gaps, or is not cut exactly to the shape of a house can lead to a high amount of air leakage. If the hot or cold air is not contained in your house, you will pay much more in energy bills heating or cooling it. With our Cedar Ridge Siding System, you are guaranteed a 20% energy savings for the life of your home. These savings are transferable to every future owner, a value that is hard to ignore.
The siding of your home can also determine how accessible the interior is to pests, such as bugs and rodents. It does not take a significantly sized gap or hole in your siding to invite in a pest looking for a hot meal or warm place to sleep. Given that we actually nail the siding in directly to the studs of your home, not just into the layers underneath, we provide you with a sturdy siding that will not slip or create any gaps for the aforementioned pests to find their way into your house. You cool air stays in, and the pests stay out.
