Invest In Your Siding Now
Even a little bit of hail can be a major concern for homeowners, and anyone who has been in Colorado knows why. Little peas have been known to turn into ping pong balls in a matter of minutes, and that can wreak havoc on your home’s siding.
Why focus on the siding? It’s the place where hail damage is most noticeable, and if you’re waiting for your insurance company, you might be stuck looking at your dimpled, paint-chipped abode for a while. Or let’s say you’re tired of managing the aftermath of a hailstorm, well, what if we told you that the right type of siding could help?
Siding technology has come a long way since your house was built. Even if it’s a new build, it’s probably got siding that’s on the cheaper side, and that’s fine while it lasts. But if you’re going to stay in your home a while and don’t want to deal with hail, backyard baseball blunders, golf balls, or other projectiles, then you should consider Fiber Cement Siding.
And yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Fiber Cement siding is made up of sand, glass, silica, cellulose fibers, and cement to produce a product that’s not only hail resistant, it holds paint better and is better at keeping moisture out of places it shouldn’t be — and that’s really why it’s worth it.
