When is it Time for Siding Replacement?
Old siding can reduce the curbside appeal and value of your home. Shawn Kalgren, owner of Southern Home Services LLC, recommends siding replacement when homeowners notice significant signs of wear and tear. While some home renovations only give a small return on investment to homeowners, siding replacement has proven to .provide one of the highest ROI of any interior or exterior home renovation project.
Vinyl or Cement Fiber Siding?
Southern Home Services LLC specializes in the installation of both vinyl siding and cement fiber siding from James Hardie.
Vinyl siding requires very little maintenance, especially when compared to wood siding. It comes in a range of different color options, and manufacturers now add chemical sealants to protect vinyl from the harmful UV rays. With modern vinyl siding, homeowners can rest assured that the material won’t fade, even after years of exposure.
James Hardie siding, also known as fiber cement siding or Hardie plank, consists of a durable cement core board with fiber cement added on top. This siding can last twice as long as other materials. Like vinyl siding, Hardie siding comes in a range of color choices. Is your color taste bold and dark? Light and neutral? Somewhere in between? You’ll be able to find a perfect match with James Hardie siding.
Why Should I Choose Southern Home Services as My Siding Contractor?
Southern Home Services LLC has been a highly rated siding contractor in Charlotte, NC for nearly 20 years. SHS contractors are well equipped to handle any siding installation project, whether installing siding on a brick home or replacing outdated, broken or damaged siding. Vinyl siding features two different ends that snap together in place on the home. Whether installing vinyl or Hardie siding, contractors will ensure that the home features end pieces that keep the siding from slipping or otherwise moving.
Homeowners also rely on Southern Home Services to repair or replace damaged siding due to storm damage. Strong winds can shake the siding and lead to the individual panels breaking away from the house. Those who opt for fiber cement or vinyl siding may notice cracks forming and find themselves dealing with water damage due to leaks located inside the walls. Southern Home Services LLC and Kalgren suggest homeowners make an appointment and let contractors determine the severity of the damage. Replacing one broken section of siding is far more affordable than replacing an entire wall.
