What Can My Siding Do for My Home’s Property Value?

Whether you are preparing to sell your home or you plan to stay in it forever, you’ll want to maximize your property values. Many home improvements can help to increase the value of your home. A new roof, new windows, and updated landscaping are all improvements that will help put money in your wallet. Perhaps the most beneficial improvement is adding new siding.

Why Choose Siding?

Vinyl siding is a low-maintenance option to improve the appearance of your home. Unlike other exterior choices, you won’t need much maintenance on vinyl siding. There is no painting required. Simply hose the walls off if they become dirty.

Studies indicate that updating the appearance of your home with vinyl siding can increase its value by close to 65%. Whether you plan to sell or stay, the property value increase pays you back in the long run.

While adding siding makes a difference to both the appearance and the value of your home, it’s a relatively inexpensive renovation to do. Replacing the exterior siding entirely is estimated to cost less than remodeling your kitchen.

Low-maintenance vinyl siding is long-lasting. The life of a typical vinyl siding project is around 25 years. New vinyl siding can refresh the look of your home, making it look newly built.

Adding new vinyl siding can give you the option of adding more insulation to the exterior of your home. Many vinyl siding options allow you to add a foam backing to the siding. Opting to have this insulating backing installed will help to increase your home’s energy efficiency.

Is Vinyl the Only Option?

Vinyl siding is durable, but it isn’t the only choice when it comes to refinishing the exterior of your home. Siding options include composite and fiber cement siding as well. A home with siding that appears to be cedar has been covered with composite siding. Fiber cement siding is resistant to termites, rot, and warping.


A relatively inexpensive way to add value, longevity, and curb appeal to your home is to add new siding to the exterior. Siding is low-maintenance, durable, and energy-efficient. Composite, fiber cement, and vinyl siding are three products available to refinish your home’s façade. The professionals at Rusco can answer the questions you might have about your siding options.
