Choosing The Right Siding

We see it often. Homeowners who are paralyzed with indecision about what color or type of siding they should have installed on their Illinois home. Luckily, Erdmann Exteriors is more than just a siding contractor in Illinois. We provide full exterior design services that will enhance your home’s looks and function. And that includes helping you choose the right color, the right level of maintenance, and the right price.

When working with a siding contractor in Illinois to choosing siding for your home you’ll want to consider:

  • Aesthetics. Your new siding will change the look of your home. Make sure you like the way it looks. In general, you’ll want to stick with colors that complement the home’s style and blend in with the neighborhood.
  • Energy Efficiency. Siding impacts the energy-efficiency of your home. No siding has a very high R-value but you may find that siding replacement and installation in Illinois provides you with an opportunity to add underlayment or insulation to keep your home more comfortable year-round.
  • Materials. Many of today’s homeowners are concerned with the manufacturing processes involved in their home improvement projects or where the raw materials come from. Your siding contractor in Illinois can be a great source of information for these questions. Vinyl siding, for example, is low maintenance and popular, but it’s made from non-renewable petrochemicals. Fiber cement siding on the other hand is made from renewable resources.
  • Durability. Will it stand up to Illinois’ cold, snowy winters, wet springs, hot summers and all-around windy weather, not to mention annual wear-and-tear?
  • Maintenance Needs. How much work do you want to invest in your siding every year? Today, most products are fairly low maintenance, but it’s always a good idea to ask about the maintenance demands before the siding is installed.
  • Accessories. Don’t forget the finishing touches! Soffits, fascia, shutters, eaves, and trimwork all have a huge impact on the visual appeal of the home. Make sure the siding product you choose either has all the accessories you need or you can easily find products that will look good with the siding you choose.

Erdmann Exteriors is a siding company in Illinois that wants to help you choose the right product for your home. We will be happy to go over all of the different types of siding available, discuss the pros and cons of each, and talk about colors and styles that will not just complement your home, but enhance it.

Vinyl siding is extremely popular. It is low-cost, easy to install, and low-maintenance. Vinyl does not provide any notable insulation value, however, so you’ll need to add an underlayment. Today’s products are available in a wide range of colors, styles, and textures and are more durable than earlier products.
