For homeowners who are thinking about siding their home, a wide range of questions is understandable. That is why Patriot Roofing has compiled a list of frequently asked questions that local homeowners have asked when considering installing siding onto their homes. Here are a just a few of the questions that we have fielded from both prospective and current siding customers:
Why should I install siding? I like my paint job how it is.
A home that is sided with painted or stained wood requires regular maintenance, the cost of which can quickly add up. The average homeowner repaints his or her home every 4-5 years, while with siding the color will stay vibrant long past then.
Will siding really help me save on energy costs?
Fiber cement siding materials are manufactured with energy efficiency in mind. If your home is not wrapped in thermally efficient siding, you could be paying far more than you should be on your monthly bills.
This seems like a long process, how long will siding take to install?
Siding is relatively easy to install and in most cases can be fit right over your existing exterior walls. Plus, the Patriot Roofing team is factory-trained to be quick and efficient in their installations. Most of our siding installations are completed in just a few days.
How easy is siding to maintain once it is installed?
Unlike paint, which requires constant maintenance, siding can be washed by a simple summer rain shower or a rinse with a garden hose. If you do encounter soil buildup, the garden hose and a brush will do the trick.
What is fiber cement siding?
Fiber cement is the fastest growing siding choice in America. It is a combination of cement, natural cellulose materials and sand that is compressed into a solid board. This creates a very durable materials that is resistant to wind, weather, fire and insects. Fiber cement can be formed to resemble wood or stucco, but lasts much longer.
