Rather than replacing, would it be more cost-effective to paint my wood siding?
If you plan to stay in the home for only a short time, perhaps. But low-maintenance siding for your home could also be a very smart investment that attracts homebuyers and gets a higher selling price. Most kinds of siding last for decades, while wood requires painting every few years to remain in good condition. Over time, new siding is the better investment.
What’s the best time to have new siding installed?
You can have your siding installed almost year-round, as your schedule and budget allow.
My new vinyl siding doesn’t seem to be firmly attached to my home.
PVC, the material that vinyl siding is made of, naturally expands and contracts as temperatures rise and fall. That’s why MasterPro and other expert installers will always hang siding panels “loosely,” to allow for the proper amount of give between sections so as not to stress the vinyl.
Does fiber cement siding need to be painted?
Yes, but typically fiber cement is primed and often painted at the factory. Because fiber cement holds paint so well, a high-quality acrylic paint should last for 10-15 years before repainting is needed.
