As your old vinyl siding fades, you’ll begin to consider your options for sprucing it up. While replacement siding is the obvious choice, many people opt to paint their homes instead.
There are benefits of painting your old siding, such as:
• Ability to quickly improve the curb appeal of your home
• Unlimited number of color selections
• It may buy you a couple more years with your current siding
• Less costly than replacement siding
While these benefits are appealing, don’t lose sight of the fact that you’re only putting a band-aid on the problem.
Painting your old siding doesn’t do anything to improve its condition or energy efficiency. Not to mention the fact that you’re paying twice for the job, as you’ll eventually need to replace your painted siding.
It’s important to consider all your options when tackling a home improvement project, but opting for the quick fix – especially when it comes to your siding – isn’t always the answer.
If your old siding has seen better days, it’s best to replace it entirely. This will give you a fresh start and many more years of unmatched service.
