Reduce Your Exterior Home Maintenance Costs

Your house is an extension of you. If the exterior looks bad, so do you. The outside of your home should be attractive, inviting, and not appear to be in need of major repairs. If it is, however, don’t worry too much, and keep in mind that cost-effective exterior home maintenance is definitely possible. It just takes time, research and the right amount of motivation.

Taking the time to choose just the right materials for your home exterior projects will cut down on future frustrations and repetitive replacements. Here are some great options:

Metal roofing is a great investment because it protects against fire and bad weather. It’s also great for reflecting sunlight to reduce cooling costs in the summer and insulate in the winter. Met roofs can last up to 60 years.

Vinyl siding is a cheap, low-maintenance substitute for traditional wood when choosing a siding material to protect your home. Some perks to vinyl siding are that it’s perfect for larger houses where painting would be difficult, the material is synthetic and doesn’t require any finishing, and it is also unaffected by insects and water.

A fiberglass or metal door offers an attractive alternative to your entryway with minimal maintenance. With its weather-tight fit that seals out water and air leaks, you’ll reduce your energy bill, and by choosing a fiberglass or metal door, you’ll protect your home from intruders, extreme weather conditions, and pests.

Your final alternative to reduce exterior home maintenance is opting for a composite deck, which will prevent splintering, warping, and rotting. Made from a mix of wood and plastic, composite decks don’t lose their strength and beauty over time as a result of age or weather damage. Upkeep will be minimal as you’ll won’t have to repaint or sand your deck.

Here are just a few of the reasons why we recommend and are proud to sell Mastic vinyl siding:

Industry Preferred

There is a reason why professionals and homeowners prefer the low-maintenance of vinyl siding to wood, fiber cement, brick or stucco options. Vinyl provides a safe, eco-friendly option that is easier to handle, store, and install. When installing vinyl siding, contractors can breathe easy and do not have to wear face masks since it is free of silica dust – a powder found in fiber cement siding that is known to cause silicosis and increase the risk of lung cancer when inhaled.

Durability & Beauty

You can have both! Each panel is manufactured from the highest quality materials and engineered to last a lifetime. Mastic siding stays tightly attached to your home in high winds, resists minor impacts, and performs beautifully—even in the harshest weather conditions. And with 35 colors, including solid and weathered cedar, Mastic has more options than anyone in the industry. But better than that, Mastic products ensure that your home’s colorful new appearance stays that way. Our rich, deep hues are engineered and tested to resist fading.

Going Green

Mastic vinyl siding contributes points towards green building programs and is green-approved by the NAHB Research Center. No painting, sealing or caulking also means that no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are added to the environment during installation or maintenance. Mastic Structure® EPS Insulated Siding also covers the entire wall with a blanket of insulation helping to reduce energy costs.

With beauty that’s more than skin deep, backed by a history of industry-changing innovation and proven quality, it’s easy to see why Mastic vinyl siding is the best choice for your home renovation.
