HOW LONG DOES SIDING LAST?
You may not believe it, but siding has changed a lot since the first time it was used. Science and technology have brought siding a long way from it’s humble beginnings. The science behind this newer siding has lead to an increase in quality and offers more benefits than in past years. Not only can you now get siding in custom colors but it’s also mold and mildew resistant with insecticide options.
The lifespan of siding has also increased, depending on several factors.
Type of Siding
Many vinyl siding brands carry a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, making replacing vinyl siding uncommon outside of physical damage due to a storm or other issues. Vinyl siding brands, like Norandex, offer siding of different thicknesses and colors.
Wood siding requires more maintenance over its lifespan like painting or replacement every few years.
Homes with steel siding require less maintenance. This type of siding, like vinyl siding, is durable enough to last a very long time.
Quality of replacement siding
Not all replacement siding is created equal. There are plenty of different brands offering different types of siding. This makes the old saying ring true, “You get what you pay for.” At Brincks Exteriors, you’re going to get a top-of-the-line product at a competitive price, installed by our competent installers.
Des Moines routinely experiences many shifts in the weather during the year, whether it’s a frigid cold winter day or scorching summer heat. Many homeowners will neglect their home’s exteriors, but the weather never will. Extreme sunlight and temperatures can cause cheap, thin siding to fade more quickly or warp and crack, meaning you’ll need a replacement. Limited warranties from siding manufacturers may cover issues related to weather, but if you opt for cheaper alternatives, you may not be so lucky!
Like many things, age can play a huge role in the lifespan of your siding. Similar to buying a used vehicle, you do your best to know how well that vehicle was maintained and driven, but you never truly know if the homeowners before you really did their best to maintain the home’s exterior.
Do you know when your siding was last replaced? If not, it may be time to think about it. Your siding could be more brittle or showing signs of needing to be replaced due to the beating it has taken over the years. Updating your siding allows you to not only take advantage of the benefits of newer siding but can increase your home’s value if you decide to sell it in the near future.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO REPLACE SIDING?
Like the lifespan of siding, the cost of repairing or replacing the siding on your home depends on a number of different factors. These include the type of siding and the size of the house, as well as if any additional repairs that need to be made to the existing soffit or fascia. It also depends on:
Size Of The House
The size of a specific job plays a major role in the costs involved in replacing siding. We take into account the overall square footage of the house as well as the number of floors. This means that a siding replacement job on a two story residential home will be greater than a one story ranch.
Additionally, the overall square footage of the house will determine how much siding you will need. A single piece of siding is measured in a 10 X 10 foot section (or 1 square). One square is equal to 100 sq. feet. During your estimate, our sales representatives will measure your home to determine how many squares your home is.
2,000 square foot home = 20 Squares
Type of Siding
As mentioned previously, there are many different styles and types of siding that can be put onto a home. Common materials that our siding contractors work with include vinyl siding, wood siding, steel siding, and fiber cement siding. These will all range in price depending on which style and type a customer is interested in. We work with every customer to understand what they are looking for and offer the best options based on those conversations.
Vinyl siding ranges from $500 – $700 per square.
Steel siding can range from $800 – $1000 per square.
Wood siding and fiber cement siding can range from $1,000 – $1,250 per square.
Many customers that contact us for siding services in Des Moines aren’t aware that they have additional issues with their home that need to be addressed prior to starting a siding project. During your estimate our sales representative will inspect the soffit and fascia of your home to ensure that your siding can be installed properly. Repairs to the fascia or soffits will increase the cost of replacing your siding.
What is a soffit?
The soffit of your home is the area covering the gap between the walls in your home and the overhang of your roof. If this is damaged, it can create gaps in from your siding to your roof, allowing moisture into your home.
What is a fascia?
A fascia is the board that covers the ends of your homes rafters. This acts as a barrier and protects your home from damage due to the weather. The most common issue is the wood has rotted or warped, allowing moisture into your home.
