What to Consider Before Selecting New Siding for Your Englewood Home

If you’ve noticed some wear and tear on the siding of your Englewood home like cracking or peeling, you may be due for a siding replacement. Occasional repairs to your siding are normal, but constant issues can be a sign that it’s time for that old siding to go. But instead of getting yourself worried about the situation, why not embrace it as an opportunity to give the exterior of your home a makeover? Remodeling your home can be fun and it can also raise its resale value if you ever decide to sell in the future. However, before starting on your residing project, here are some important things you’ll want to consider.

1. Project Scope

Before you start diving into your renovations, it’s important to take into consideration the size and extensiveness of the changes you’re wanting to make. Determine what your budget is and whether or not your changes are financially feasible. You may even want to consider hiring a professional to inspect your home’s siding to determine what condition it’s in and if replacement is necessary.

2. Siding Type
Determining the type of siding you’ll need can be complicated. While aesthetics are important, they’re not everything. You want a siding that you can trust to hold up in Colorado’s unpredictable and sometimes extreme weather. Balancing durability and aesthetics is difficult, but it is possible. Try looking into siding types that come in multiple styles and textures like James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding.

3. Siding Color
This is the fun part of installing new siding. There’s hundreds of different siding color options out there to choose from. When deciding on a siding color, it may be a good idea to take a look around your neighbor to see what other homeowners have come up with. While it can be fun to get creative, you also want to make sure your home doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb.

4. Accents & Trim
If you’re residing your home, you may also want to consider making additional architectural changes like adding trim and accents. Updating your home in this way can make it seem more modern and give your home a more cohesive appearance. Installing HardieTrim Boards is a great way to accentuate doors, windows, or corners of your home.
