HOW LONG DOES SIDING TYPICALLY LAST?
Siding has come a long way over the years. You used to have to replace it more often and struggle with keeping it looking fresh and new. Not only can you now get siding in custom colors but it’s also mold and mildew resistant with a built-in insecticide to protect you and your home from pests.
With technology, the lifespan of your average siding has increased, mostly because of the following factors:
Type of Siding
Many vinyl siding brands carry a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty, making replacing vinyl siding rare outside of serious damage due to a storm. Vinyl siding brands like Norandex offer siding of different thicknesses and colors so you get exactly what you need when you need it.
If you choose traditional wood siding, it will require more maintaining over its lifespan like painting or replacement every few years. This is something to keep in mind if you’re going for cost effective rather than look and feel.
Homes with steel siding require the least maintenance. This type of siding, like vinyl siding, is durable enough to last a very long time so you won’t have to worry every time there’s a heavy storm.
Quality of replacement siding
Not all replacement siding is the same, so you have to be able to do some research to pick the kind that’s right for you. There are plenty of different brands offering different types of siding at all quality and price levels. In the siding world, you truly often get what you pay for. At Brincks Exteriors, you will always get a top-of-the-line product installed by one of our expert siding installers.
Ames routinely experiences many shifts in the weather during the year since we experience all four seasons. Whether it’s a seriously cold winter day or horrible summer heat, the weather never takes a day off. Extreme sunlight and temperatures can cause cheap, thin siding to fade more quickly or warp and crack, leading you to replace it more often. Limited warranties from siding manufacturers may cover issues related to weather, but if you opt for cheaper alternatives, you may not be so lucky! It’s better to pick a certified brand and installer that will get the job done right the first time.
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 previous owners did all they could to take care of their property.
Do you know when your siding was last replaced? If not, it may be time to think about replacement. Your siding could be more brittle or showing other signs of needing to be replaced, which you could probably discover with a quick walk around your home. 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 TYPICALLY?
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 the need for any additional repairs to the existing soffit or fascia. Other factors include:
Size Of The House
The size of a specific job plays a major role in the costs of your siding replacement job. 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 will need.
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 you are interested in. We work with every customer to understand what they are looking for and offer the best options based on their needs. Our most commonly installed siding options range in price, for example:
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 Ames aren’t aware that they have additional issues with their home that need to be addressed before 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 overall cost of replacement.
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. This leads to more structural problems.
What is a fascia?
A fascia is the board that covers the ends of your home’s rafters. This acts as a barrier and protects your home from damage due to the weather. The most common issue typically involves the wood that has rotted or warped, allowing moisture into your home. This would also need to be repaired.
