Your siding, along with your roofing and gutters, forms your home’s primary defense against the elements. As such, choosing the right product is crucial in ensuring the safety and comfort of your family. Unfortunately, sorting through the seemingly endless list of options can be a daunting task.
Read on as our expert exterior remodelers at V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, Inc. share some practical pointers about how to budget for and choose a siding product that’s 100% right for your needs.
When it comes to home remodeling projects, the more you research, the more questions you tend to have. This is not a bad thing. In fact, asking your siding contractor questions about the different types of siding available to you is an important step in the process. We always recommend consulting with a professional before making any decisions in any home improvement project.
Determine Your Budget
The best way to narrow down your options right off the bat is to determine how much you’re willing to spend on your siding. This may depend on a number of factors, but, ultimately, this is something that only you can figure out. Start by setting a price ceiling and browse products that are within that price range. If you find that this has significantly reduced your siding options, you may want to adjust your budget accordingly by up to 5% to 10%.
Realistic and Reasonable
During your consultation, your contractor can help you choose materials that will give your home the best advantages. However, depending on your budget, you may want to set your expectations a little bit more realistically. For example, as long as there is no significant difference in performance and quality, you may want to forego expensive fiber cement siding and choose a more cost-effective vinyl siding product instead.
