Aug 26, 2019 : Considering a siding or exterior upgrade for your New Jersey Home?

Check out these Siding Tips!

Let’s face it, the wrong paint combo or worn exterior can make your house look shabby and negatively impact its market value. If your home’s siding is looking a little worse for the wear, or if it’s simply time for an exterior update, you have plenty of options to consider.

The great news is that siding is available in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles made to fit virtually any budget. Return on investment is an important consideration for a home remodeling project, and siding replacement is one renovation that typically carries a good return—approximately 76 percent, according to Remodeling magazine’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report

What type of siding would be best suited to fit your needs?


  • Lightweight and durable.
  • In many cases, vinyl siding can be installed over your existing siding (provided the original layer is in good shape), which makes it an excellent choice for retrofitting your NJ home.
  • Vinyl siding is easy to maintain. Vinyl siding can be washed off with a hose when it gets dirty!
  • New vinyl siding is less prone to fading after years of sun exposure than older products.


  • Typically made from cedar or redwood, wood siding, when properly cared for, is an incredibly durable product.
  • Cedar and redwood naturally resist decay and insect infestations.
  • Damaged or cracked planks and shakes are easy to replace.
  • Wood siding is easy to paint, stain, and seal based on homeowner preferences.


  • Long expected lifespan and positive impact on home value.
  • Fiber-cement siding is sturdy, virtually maintenance-free, and resists insect infestation.
  • Planks can be manufactured to resemble different textures, such as stucco or stone.
  • Fiber-cement products come pre-finished in a range of colors or primed and ready for a custom paint color.
  • The siding can be painted if you decide to change the color in the future.


  • Brick veneer is much less expensive than a solid brick exterior, and looks just as nice.
  • Brick is virtually maintenance-free with unparalleled resistance to termites and fire.
  • Brick veneer is typically constructed with salvaged brick, so it is considered an eco-friendly cladding option.


You’re in the final steps of deciding to replace the siding on your house. Siding isn’t cheap and you are operating on a budget. But here’s the thing; replacing the siding on your NJ home is one of those things where you truly do get what you pay for.
