Different Ways Siding Protects Your Home
When choosing a new siding material, make sure that you consider more than just the looks. Your siding doesn’t just offer aesthetic benefits but it also ensures your home is safe from weather extremes.
Learn ways your siding improves your home’s protection against harsh elements from a leading residential and commercial siding contractor.
Sturdy Structure & Interior
Siding prevents rain and moisture from infiltrating your home’s interior. Moisture can have disastrous effects on your indoor spaces like mold and rot. It can also compromise the structural integrity of your home.
Unlike wood, fiber cement siding resists moisture. It doesn’t absorb moisture, meaning it won’t swell, warp, and rot. Fiber cement also offers excellent resistance to hail damage. Other siding options can suffer from damage due to heat and humidity. The formulation of fiber cement makes it dimensionally stable and protected in these conditions. It’s an excellent commercial and multi-family siding option.
Protection from Extreme Temperatures
Thanks to your home’s siding, your belongings are dry and your interior is in good shape. Siding also helps with your home’s energy profile. It acts as a barrier against elements that can affect the comfort of your indoor spaces.
Aging, cracked, or damaged siding can allow drafts to enter your home, which means your HVAC system will need to work harder to keep you comfortable. On the other hand, high-performance fiber cement siding helps keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. It works all-year-round to prevent energy loss, saving you on heating and cooling costs.
