The exterior of your home needs the right protection. In the past, the materials that your walls were made of had to be your shield. Today, however, providers of exterior services offer plenty of protective options. These include the installation of fiber cement siding, and painting over the exterior. Here’s some information you might need to figure out which side of this argument works for you.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is applied to your home horizontally, and in several sections. The material itself is made of the latest insulating and weatherproofing ingredients. The fiber cement is tough to crack, and easy to design.
If you want to install this siding, it may cost more upfront. The material is sold at a set price per square inch. Adding fiber cement siding could also mean you’ll have to remove the old material. However, the siding and finish will last you upwards of 15 years. You also get incredible insulation, as the siding material is heat-resistant.
Other homes simply apply paint on their existing walls. The paint can take longer to apply, but is easier to transport. It’s also cheaper upfront, because paint is not difficult to transport and apply.
The drawback of paint is that it doesn’t last as long. The material tends to fade after a few months. If you don’t apply another coat, your walls will look less attractive and can get damaged. Paint doesn’t really offer any strong insulating properties.
