Undated (WXOW) - Whether you're trying to sell your home, or you're planning to stay put, replacing old or damaged siding is a good investment.
According to Angie's List, homeowners have several siding options available today. Wood, vinyl and fiber-cement are the most popular choices. Aluminum and composite are also available.
Each siding material has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to installation, maintenance and cost, so Angie's List suggest doing your research to find the perfect product for your home.
"Weather can be one of the biggest enemies to your siding," said Angie's List Founder, Angie Hicks. "So you need to keep in mind that you can get hail and wind damage. You may consider when residing your house to get some additional pieces of siding to keep so that you have some that matches your house if you need to do some repair work."
Siding manufacturers are often very specific on how the product should be installed. If installed incorrectly, you could void your warranty. Check first before you paint any product, some manufacturers will void your warranty if the siding has been altered.
