Siding and Return on Investment
One of the most important reasons why siding will boost your home value is return on investment (ROI). Each year, Remodeling Magazine takes a look at popular remodeling projects and determines their ROI. The 2018 results are out and once again siding replacement has seen a strong return. According to Remodeling, replacing 1,250 square feet of existing siding with new siding recoups 76.7 percent of the cost you paid, which is up slightly from 2017’s figure of 76.4 percent.
A separate survey from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) shows that installing fiber-cement siding like James Hardie Siding gives an even higher cost recovery. According to NARI, installing fiber cement siding gives you a 83 percent return on your initial cost in value.
Why Consumers Love Fiber Cement Siding
In addition to looking at cost and value, NARI also looked at consumer satisfaction. They assign a “joy score” rating satisfaction on a scale of 1-10, and fiber cement siding installation received a joy score of 10. Among the common reasons why homeowners were satisfied with their installation is the siding’s durability and long lasting results. Another reason given by customers for choosing fiber cement siding is durability. The San Francisco Chronicle lists other reasons why fiber-cement siding is attractive to homeowners. One reason they cite is the fact that it’s moisture resistant, which means homes will be protected from the elements.
In the case of James Hardie, your siding is specifically engineered to match the climate of the zone, so it will stand up to snow, cold and anything else Long Island weather throws at us. Fiber cement siding keeps moisture out and also protects your home from fire, pests and rot. And with a wide variety of colors available you’ll enhance curb appeal too.
