A low budget home renovation does a lot to enliven your spirits at the end of the day. We return to our houses tired after a long day and it is the ambience of the house that brings back our spirit. How many times have you reminded yourself of getting the leak in your bathroom fixed? Or the much desired change in the lighting system in your drawing room? How about a new chandelier in the center of your living room or designer in built wall lighting?
So many small issues can crop up in our home with respect to its construction and design. How many times have we thought about upgrading the wooden clapboard in our house to the more exquisite looking vinyl plastic siding? Let us take peek into the different types of sidings that are doing the rounds these days.
Technically, siding is the outer covering or cladding of a house meant to shed water and protect it from the effects of weather. They act as a key element in the aesthetic beauty of the structure and directly influence its property value. Thus, careful planning about the siding of your house will help you earn a good fortune in case you are planning to put up your property for sale.
The different types of sidings available today are as follows:
Wooden types: Usually made of redwood or cedar, wooden clapboards can be either horizontal or vertical. These woods are chosen mainly because they are weather resistant. They add to the style of your home and can be used on a wide variety of homes in any color palette desired.
Plastic types: Imitations of wooden clapboards with the help of vinyl boards or uPVC weatherboarding has earned recognition among home designers. Even though in the past vinyl siding were found to crumple and fade, present day vinyl options are better and are structurally modified to withstand rough weather conditions.
Asphalt types: Modern maintenance-free structures were developed from asphalt brick sidings that involved asphalt impregnated panels that were used to imitate the appearance of brick and stone.
