Why Should I Consider Vinyl Siding?
Think about what area of your Cincinnati home is most visible. Without a doubt, it is the home’s exterior! Even if it is only the front and one side, an impression of the home is still conveyed. In fact, it is an important impression because it often becomes the first impression of the entire home. If you aren’t happy with your home’s current curb appeal, new siding can create an amazing transformation of your home’s look.
A Whole New Look
New siding can help give your home a clean look. Older siding can easily become dirty and it may leave people thinking the home is not cared for. Your home may even become a showpiece in the neighborhood! And there are different types of siding that are very popular, all with different colors and patterns, to truly transform your home’s look. The Vinyl Siding Institute website displays a wide variety of design styles, and different means of installation.
Vinyl Siding Options
Vinyl siding is one of the most popular siding options. There are three categories of vinyl siding and each will change the way your home looks in different ways. Vinyl siding can be purchased as long thin planks, or it could be shakes or shingles that are nailed individually onto the house. The thin planks can be installed vertically or horizontally depending on the look you want to achieve. If your home is large, you may be able to combine the planks with shakes or shingles.
Shakes patterned after cedar shakes can give a home the rustic outdoor appearance of real cedar wooden shakes. Vinyl shakes are manufactured to look like wood but they do not have the high maintenance of wood shakes. Staggered patterns are available and can give the appearance that each shake was individually sawed by hand and installed one at a time. The straight line shakes also provide an attractive appearance. Color coordinated trim will further enhance the new look of the home. fThe design possibilities are endless, and the color combinations make for attractive displays.
Beautify Your Neighborhood
Enhancing the curb appeal of your house will have remarkable consequences for you. Having lovely new siding on your house makes your domicile shine. And having a sparkling, fresh exterior makes your neighbors grin with pride, and encourages them to step up their own home work. A prettier set of houses equals higher property values, equals happier and better-paid neighbors, and the virtuous cycle continues.
Cincinnati is a beautiful, scenic city. But it is a city that, frankly, is undervalued. When people from Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., or other more “expensive” cities come to visit, they are often stunned at how far their money can go in Cincinnati, in terms of investing in a home. Anything we can all do to raise our property values, to raise the beauty of our shared streets, and to raise the reputation of Cincinnati as a shining, world-class city — this is all work that benefits all of us.
Vinyl Siding for the Future
The degree to which new vinyl siding can improve your home’s curb appeal should not be underestimated. Fresh walls, vibrant colors, and clean external contours can make an aging façade sparkle.
Having material that can withstand the weather is essential. But having material that is versatile, in terms of both design and application, can open up a world of possibilities for your home’s exterior. Vinyl is designed and engineered to require the least amount of upkeep and maintenance. Get that siding on, and it will stay bright and clean-looking with only a minimum of hassle.
Cleaning your exterior becomes much easier with vinyl siding, too. A simple power-washing – which is surprisingly fun to do, as we hear from many clients – can scrub you siding clean, without you needing to climb a ladder. A high-powered hose can blast any residue or discoloration off of those new panels.
Rather than needing to apply new coats of paint as the years go by, you can just wash your siding, and it will look fresh and radiant. And by needing fewer toxic chemicals in the form of fresh paint buckets, your new vinyl siding will be ecologically smarter and more sustainable. That longlasting siding will require very little maintenance or upkeep over the years, and will keep your home looking modern, well-maintained, and ready for all seasons.
