Comparing Repainting And Replacing Siding

Your home's siding makes up the majority of the exterior surface area of the structure, and as such is one of the prime components of your home's curb appeal. Whether you want to sell your home in the near future or simply want to update the appearance of your house, you may consider altering your siding. There are two main methods for doing this: repainting the existing siding or completely replacing it. Understanding the differences between each process can help you choose the one that is best suited for your needs.

Repainting Siding

Repainting your siding is the cheaper option of the two, since you won't have to pay for additional materials or go through the time (or pay for the labor) of having your old siding removed and an entirely new set of materials installed on your home. This also means that repainting your siding can be completed much faster, which may be the right choice for you if you are operating under a tight timeline. Repainting your siding can also completely change the appearance of your home, just like replacing the siding would – and it can help extend the lifespan of your existing siding by installing a new layer of protection against moisture and the elements onto it.

However, repainting your siding will not solve any of the structural issues that it may be experiencing, or any damage which may have occurred over the time of its life. Deteriorating siding may look better after being painted again, but its lifespan will only be able to be extended so far.

Replacing Siding

Fully replacing your siding will fix any damage that your siding has experienced, which reduces the risk of water damage, mold growth, and other forms of damage that can occur when moisture and the elements are able to find a way into the interior of your home. Further, replacing your siding can also help reduce your energy bills by providing a new insulative barrier around the entirety of your home, preventing heat transfer throughout the year. A newly installed layer of siding will also last much longer than a new paint job, since the underlying materials are brand new.

The downsides of fully replacing your home's siding, however, include the sheer amount of disruption that the process will entail. Since siding covers such a large amount of your home's surface, it can take several days or weeks, even, to fully replace it – which drives up costs and headaches.
