If you plan to spruce up your home’s exterior, there are actually two ways you can do this. You can either have a siding replacement project done or opt for a simple repainting. Unfortunately, some homeowners might have some difficulty in choosing between the two so it’s best that you learn as much as you can about both options.
In this post, High Performance Homes discusses the individual differences of repainting siding and replacing it.
Repainting is the first option that most homeowners think of when improving their home’s exterior. After all, it is the less costly option compared to siding repair or replacement project and if done right with high quality paints, it will give you a fresh new look that can last for several years. However, keep in mind that even the best quality of paints will need to be replaced every few years, especially if you use low-quality paints. Repainting also involves a lot of prep work if you want the paint to adhere to the siding properly. All in all, repainting is a labor intensive process so make sure you can cope with the amount of work that needs to be done before actually committing.
On the other hand, if your siding is due to be replaced anyways, you might as well do so now. Not only will you be able to update your home’s look but a new siding will also last longer, more durable, and will require less maintenance compared to a simple repainting job. As always, however, there are a few drawbacks to keep in mind. For instance, picking a more affordable options puts your home at risk as they’re less durable and less weather-resistant, especially if you choose vinyl siding for your home. Materials like wood siding, meanwhile, are susceptible to mold, mildew and rot.
