Reasons to Invest in New Siding

Moving into spring means you’ll probably be getting back outside to work around your home or yard. It’s the perfect time to tackle those home improvement projects that have stacked up all winter. How does your home exterior look? If your siding has seen better days, springtime is a great time to replace it. Here are some reasons why investing in new siding is worth it.

#1: It improves curb appeal.
One of the first things people notice when they arrive at home is what it looks like from the outside. If your exterior siding is worn, warped, or missing pieces, it’s time to replace it. Quality fiber cement siding is incredibly durable and won’t swell, rot, or warp when it’s exposed to heat, humidity, or water. In addition, this siding works well with a variety of home styles. It uses ColorPlus® technology, which is uses a baked-on pre-finish that won’t fade or fade from ultraviolet rays.

#2: It will last for decades.
Did you know that replacing your siding with fiber cement siding means it will last up to 50 years? It is resistant to all types of wear, insects, and weather, and it is also fire-resistant.

#3: It helps improve energy efficiency.
New siding is not just a cosmetic improvement. It also helps keep your home protected from the variety of Pacific Northwest weather we have. When you have your home’s siding replaced, it’s also a great time to assess your insulation and add more. This will help even more with energy efficiency, helping reduce utility bills.

Ways to Keep Your Home Warmer This Winter

Winter weather means hunkering down and staying warm. Cold weather will stick around for a while longer, so we’re here to help provide some ideas that will keep your home warmer for the rest of the season.

#1: Don’t ignore drafts.
Did you know that older windows and doors will bring in cold outside air? They’ll also leak out the warm air that your heating system is working hard to pump in. Minimize drafts by upgrading your windows and doors to new, energy efficient ones. This is not only a great way to save energy and stay warm, but they will add value to your home and boost curb appeal. Now is the time to act, too! We are offering a variety of specials that can help you save big!

#2: Keep your heating system tuned up.
Professional preventative maintenance on your heating and cooling system is an important part of keeping your home warm all winter long. Professional HVAC companies will make sure all of the internal components of the heating system are working at peak efficiency and they will also make sure the filters are cleaned, which helps prolong the life of the system and keep the air clean. So, don’t neglect this important task of keeping the system professionally maintained annually.

#3: Don’t forget about your roof.
Your roof is a critical part of your home’s protection. Be sure it’s inspected well, checking to ensure that there are no missing shingles or cracks in flashing or gutters. These could lead to leaks or other areas where cold air could penetrate it. That opens your home up to cold air and increases the risk for potential damage. This could cause expensive repairs or even a full roof replacement later down the road. If you do need a roof replacement, our team at Lifetime Windows and Doors can help with that, too! We specialize in installing shingled roofs, metal roofs, and tile roofs. Choosing the right material depends on your home’s architecture as well as performance factors. Not sure which one is best? We will help you find the material that meets your needs.

Winter is cold, but you can stay warm! So, contact us today to get your home improvement project started. That way, you can keep your home protected and warm no matter what Jack Frost decides to throw our way!
