Installing new siding may be a good idea, but much may seem to upon your reasoning for doing so. For some, siding is an obvious solution to a home that is beginning to look its age. For others, it is a costly investment that should only be made when absolutely necessary. But you may be wondering whether it will add value to your home or even make it easier to sell. If you are interested in new siding in Oahu, rest assured that there are plenty of options and professionals who can walk you through those options. But your decision may hinge upon the extent to which new siding will pay off when it comes time to sell your home. If so, you may be surprised to learn that siding is actually a pretty wise investment.
Siding goes a long way toward improving your home’s curb appeal. It is one of the first things that potential homebuyers will notice, and it may be one of the most important items they consider when evaluating the exterior of your home. Like windows and roofing, new siding can seriously impact the look of your home, perhaps modernizing it in the process—particularly if you own an older home and haven’t updated the siding in some time. And when it comes to cost, the investment is actually pretty worthwhile.
“Replacing siding is one of the most inexpensive ways to improve the appearance of a home’s exterior and at an average of $10,000 for the entirety of the project, the remodel can help to make a home’s exterior look virtually brand new,” according to Business Insider’s Amy Elms. “Additionally, homeowners have the option of installing foam backing to vinyl siding, which adds durability and saves money overtime from homeowners due to increased insulation.”
That can of price may seem like a lot of money. The good news is that it can actually add value to your home, too. Depending upon the kind of siding you install (e.g. vinyl or fiber cement), you can recoup as much as 70 to 80 percent of your initial investment by way of increased home value. For the most part, such an investment pays for itself. Given that new siding will also make your home easier to sell (and less subject to negotiation by those who might otherwise spot a renovation task), chances are this is the kind of expenditure that may make sense for you and your family.
Of course, not all siding is equal. And depending upon the look and function of your current siding, there could be any number of good reasons to install a new edition. The possibility of selling your home in the near future is certainly one of those reasons.
