The exterior of your home is one of the most important features of your home. The exterior has a big impact on the curb appeal of your home since it is one of the first things people notice. Additionally, it offers protection against each of the four seasons. When you replace your exterior siding with new siding from the Mel Harris Company, you are giving your home an automatic facelift offering an improved curb appeal, increased energy efficiency and increased value.
A 2017 study conducted by the National Association of Realtors® studied the top remodeling projects that increased value—both financially and emotionally. The survey broke exterior projects into two categories: 1) Rank of the project’s appeal to buyers and 2) Rank of projects’ likely value to the home for resale. New siding ranked in the top five of both categories. The most common reason for doing the project was to upgrade worn-out surfaces, finishes, and material and the second most common reason was that they would be selling their home in the next two years. It was also determined that in addition to the added beauty and value of the home, most homeowners experienced a greater desire to be home since completing the project.
Another added benefit to siding is that it is tough, widely available in many styles and colors and it never needs painting. The color permeates the material and reveals nicks and scratches.
New siding offers better protection and energy efficiency to your home. Old siding can have cracks and chips that allow moisture to get into your home, which can cause major structural issues. Siding is not only a protector but also a good insulator.
When you choose the professionals at Mel Harris Company to upgrade your exterior, you are also choosing superior durability, added energy efficiency, beauty and value. Siding can be prefabricated into many different textures, colors, and designs to fit all tastes and budgets. Mel Harris Company offers many options to match any home’s design, from simple horizontal panels to scalloped panels that provide a cedar shake-look.
