Most home exterior remodeling companies carry a wide variety of home improvement solutions, but almost all of them will always offer three particular products and services: siding, roofing and gutters and downspouts. These three form an interconnected holistic system that protects your home against water-related damage. The roles your roof and gutters play are pretty straightforward and they often overshadow the importance of your siding. However, this doesn’t mean you should neglect it.
Let our experts at Triangle Home Exteriors explain how siding can affect not only the outside but the inside of your home as well.
The Trinity of Water Protection
Nobody wants unwanted water to penetrate the interiors of their home. Water, when left uncontrolled, can rot wood, crack concrete and cause a number of aesthetic and physical problems to a lot of the support structures, fixtures and furniture indoors. Poorly maintained siding boards are prone to water-related issues, a few of which could prove costly to have siding contractors come to repair. Keep your siding, along with your roof and gutters, in perfect shape to keep your home safe from water-related troubles.
Improving Energy Efficiency
Siding boards are not just there to look pretty. They also provide a layer of insulation that could help reduce your home’s energy costs. If your home’s thermal envelope—that is, its interior environment—is breached, your heating and cooling efforts could leak out. This causes your HVAC system to work that much harder just to maintain the same level of comfort you’re accustomed to, resulting in a gradual but noticeable increase in your bills. Have your siding regularly and professionally inspected for airtightness and weatherproofing to avoid losses in your energy consumption.
