SIDING

Your home’s siding can raise the value of your property and provide you with lasting beauty to enjoy for years to come. It is one of the fastest and most sustainable ways to beautify your home’s exterior and with the wide range of colors and finishes you have to choose from, the hardest thing you will have to do is decide.

Siding installation in Rockton, IL or in Darien, WI makes a big difference in the value and curb appeal of your home. The siding on your house says a lot about it. It will communicate whether or not you have taken care of your house; it compliments or degrades your neighborhood, and not least of all – it protects your home. The right siding can keep insects at bay, protect it from pests, and insulate the structure from harsh weather.

TYPES OF RESIDENTIAL SIDING

Different siding materials provide different features. Vinyl siding is durable, flexible, and versatile. It is also insulating, which improves your home’s energy efficiency rating. Vinyl siding does not conduct heat or cold and does not react to temperature. It is also made from a material that is the same color through its entire thickness, topped by a layer of protective coating. It will never flake, crack or peel – and there is never any need to paint it. Made from either aluminum or steel, metal siding is far less versatile than vinyl. It has a tendency to become rigid and break apart and is temperature conductive, meaning it will have a negative effect on your home’s insulating systems. Steel and aluminum siding is painted and can chip, peel, and fade over time. It is also more difficult to replace and may result in extensive repair work simply to fix a small area.

Vinyl siding provides a range of benefits:

  • It makes your home more energy efficient
  • It is high-performance and built to last
  • It protects your home from heat, cold, and extreme weather
  • Its beauty lasts a long time
  • It is easy to clean and maintain
  • Hundreds of colors
  • Wide range of materials
  • Fashionable finishes
  • Increase the resale value of your home

If your siding is damaged, call the experts at Martin Exteriors. We have been elevating the beauty of Rockford neighborhoods for a long time and we’d love to give your home the TLC it deserves.

Siding can become damaged for a number of reasons:

  • Wear and tear over time
  • Storm-related damage
  • Impact damage
  • Damage caused by trees, animals or thrown objects

For most siding repairs, we can simply replace the damaged section, giving you a seamless look and feel while removing the unsightly blemishes. If your siding is of the “vintage” variety, it is possible that the color may have been discontinued. In some cases, siding may have faded over time and may be difficult to match. There are several ways in which we can work around these challenges, but only an inspection will tell the whole story. Call for a free inspection of your exteriors today and get one step closer to having that brand-new home look once again.
