Your Choice of Siding (Vinyl, Wood, Brick, Aluminum) is your protect from elements and pests
Choosing siding deserves careful consideration.
Siding protects the house against the elements and pests! Some sidings are good in dry climates, others in wetter climates. Some siding is better in windy conditions. And still others, like vinyl, are good in all types of weather conditions.
- The Elements
- Your choice of siding will help prevent moisture penetration and the growth of biological contaminants such as mold, dust mites and bacteria.These three types of biological contaminants have been known to cause allergic, respiratory, and other health problems in humans. Rain, snow and frost are the moisture concerns. If rain, snow or frost get behind the siding, the moisture makes the wall sheathing soft, degrading the strength of the entire house frame.
- The Pests
- Some of the common pests that may reside behind poor or inappropriate siding are dust mites, carpenter ants, and termites. Dust mites are a common allergy concern. Carpenter ants and termites, as they eat away at the home, undermine the strength of a wooden frame. A carefully chosen siding, appropriate for your climate and the amount of care you are willing to devote to its maintenance, will not only give your house a new look, but protect your family's health and safety.
