Difficulties Associated with Wood Siding
As we mentioned, homes with wood siding are notoriously difficult to maintain. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, wood siding must be painted or sealed every four to nine years. This involves an awful lot of work because you have to scrape the wood and then thoroughly clean it before repainting. Wood can be damaged during this process. But preparing for a paint job isn’t the only thing that can damage wood. Anything that hits the side of a wood sided house, can cause a repair headache.
Moisture can also be a difficult problem for homeowners who have wood siding, particularly on Long Island. Homes near the water or homes that have been exposed to rain or winter snow can see wood siding rot, mold or swell. Exposing your home to that much moisture can lead to serious damage and possibly major repair.
The James Hardie Advantage
When you install James Hardie Siding with Good Guys Contracting you’ll be protecting your home with a durable product. Their durable fiber cement siding will protect your home for years to come. It’s moisture resistant and it won’t crack or deteriorate over time. James Hardie siding also comes in a wide variety colors and you don’t have to worry about constantly repainting your siding. It doesn’t expand or split when exposed to moisture or freezing conditions the way Oriented Strand Board or OSB siding does. You also don’t have to worry about insect infestation with Hardie. Bugs like to feast on wood, not fiber cement. Finally, wood siding creates much more of a risk for fire. While heat will transfer through Hardie Siding, it will not directly catch fire.
