There are many things to consider when you’re making decisions regarding the siding for your home’s exterior surface. There is a wide variety of siding options available on today’s market. In order for a decision to be made about which material is best for your property, there are a few factors you should keep in mind that will enable you to make the best choice.
Price, of course, is a major deciding factor for many buyers. Installing siding to your home, or to an addition of it, can cost a substantial amount of money. Comparing different siding materials will be quite beneficial to you as you narrow down your siding options.
Appearance is another main factor. Consider the look, style, and color you are aiming for as an end result. Our professionals, at Keuka Valley Builders, can guide you as you choose between siding options. You may consider siding choices, such as; vinyl, aluminum, wood, fiber cement, stone, brick, stucco, or some other building materials.
Resistance to local weather patterns is another factor that needs consideration. Some siding materials will be able to withstand the elements, such as wind, rain, or snow, better than others. It is important to choose the best building material for your location.
Energy-saving factors can make a significant difference between siding materials. Different materials have different thermal insulation values. For example, insulated vinyl siding is rated higher for insulation quality than stucco siding. Once again, depending on your location, you should choose a siding material that will provide the best energy-saving solution for your home.
The structural design of your home will play some role in deciding the best siding supplies. For example, are you looking for siding for a one-story ranch home or for a three-story farm home? Examinations of the varying siding supplies will help you make the right choice.
Lastly, but perhaps most importantly for the long-term, is the required maintenance of the chosen siding material. Considerations include; expected painting schedules, house-washing routines, or anticipated repairs due to age or weathering. Factors, such as; resistance to weather elements, insect infestations, and material rot or malfunction, should also be considered for the long-term life of the siding.
Overall, choosing a siding material for your property is a fun, creative task for any home owner. However, some key factors should play a part when making the initial decision of which material to choose. If you have any questions, please give our professionals at Keuka Valley Builders a call. We would love to help!
Dawn/Paul, We just wanted to take a moment and tell you how pleased we are with our new building. The work ethic that everyone on the job displayed is rarely seen today. We couldn’t believe how hard everyone worked on a day with temps in the 90s. It has been a long time since I have seen men work so hard without any disputes whatsoever. The workmanship is excellent. Nobody can believe how fast our building was completed. We will be referring anyone who needs a building to you without question. We were truly blessed to pick you as our contractor.
We are so happy with the barn! You guys did a great job! Speed, efficiency and a great end product.
The barn is really well built and we are very happy with your work and enjoyed working with you.
From my initial contact, to the last day of construction, I could not be more pleased with this Company. Mr. Catlin and his wife were a pleasure to deal with. From the onsite survey, thru the estimate and written contract proposal, they answered all my questions
Our experience with KVB has been excellent! We just love our addition that was started December 19th. Those guys are pleasant, timely, and very professional. Would definitely recommend them, two thumbs up!
I highly recommend Keuka Valley Builders. Paul and Dawn Catlin took the utmost care to make sure that every detail on my garage project was done to perfection.
