In order to get the most value for one’s home one should seriously consider the siding facing the street. The siding is instrumental for what realtor’s call curb appeal. There are many types of siding that provide advantages and disadvantages in terms of cost, maintenance, durability, appeal, and energy efficiency. One should consider these terms when deciding to upgrade, maintain, or change siding. Materials like brick and stone are a higher cost but more durable compared to vinyl and fiber cement which are lower cost and less durable. Materials like vinyl will not look as nice to potential buyers as brick and stone and are less energy efficient, but vinyl is very cheap.
