Replacing your home’s exterior siding can help increase your curb appeal, amplify your home’s market value, and ensure that your home retains its beauty.

As a homeowner, you’ve been looking at the exterior of your home for as long as you can remember. Perhaps it was on your bucket list to eventually replace your siding, especially as years of wear and tear became apparent throughout the exterior of your home. Replacing your home’s exterior siding can help increase your curb appeal, amplify your home’s market value, attract future homebuyers, and ensure your home remains beautiful for years to come. Fisher Lumber has a wide selection of lumber available for homeowners and builders to assist during a siding remodeling project — especially if your home previously was covered in wood siding.

Consider Exterior Siding Repairs Instead of Replacements

It isn’t always necessary to fully replace all of your home’s siding, particularly if there’s areas where the siding is still in good condition. If your home’s siding has minor cracks within it, rather than opting for new lumber siding, you can hire an experienced builder to repair any minor damage in the siding. This can help you get more bang for your buck as you work to restore your home back into good condition.

When You Should Fully Replace Your Siding

Always take into consideration the age of your siding when opting to fully replace your siding. If your siding is from the 1990s and earlier, you’ll most likely want to replace your siding entirely. Rather than replacing siding one-by-one, it will likely be best to replace it altogether to ensure a cohesive color scheme is implemented throughout your homes exterior. Additionally, it’s best to fully replace your home’s exterior siding in warmer months like fall or spring, to ensure project completion without inclement weather imposing. 

Wood Siding vs. Vinyl Siding: What’s Right for My Home? 

While cedar wood siding is a beautiful choice for a home’s exterior, you might want to select vinyl siding if you’re looking for a material that’s likely to resist various weather temperatures and conditions over the years. Wood siding is incredibly eco-friendly and can last up to 20 – 40 years, vinyl siding will last for around 40 before needing to be replaced.
