Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

3 Basic Siding Questions

Vinyl siding is a common upgrade that many homeowners will want to make to their properties. If you are in the process of trying to decide whether or not you would like to have siding installed, you will need to have a reasonably well-developed understanding about siding.

1. How Is Siding Installed?

Siding is essentially panels that are designed to fit on the exterior of your house. When siding is installed, it will be necessary to place a moisture barrier between the siding and the house. Otherwise, moisture from rain or condensation could get trapped, and this could lead to mold, rot and a host of other serious structural issues for the house. These issues can be further complicated if the siding is not installed correctly as this could make it easier for moisture to seep behind it. For this reason, it can be wise to leave the installation of the siding to a trained professional.

2. What Types Of Damages Or Problems Can Siding Sustain?

Siding that is correctly installed will be extremely resistant to being damaged. However, there are still some ways that siding can be damaged. Strong storms will be one of the leading causes of damage to vinyl siding as the intense winds may be able to loosen the panels. Also, extremely large hail can cause the panels to dent or split. Typically, a storm will have to be extremely severe to be able to cause these damages as siding is designed to withstand most extreme conditions, but tornadoes, hurricanes and supercell thunderstorms will be strong enough to cause these damages.

3. How Is Siding Cleaned?

Regularly cleaning the siding is an important aspect of maintaining it. When siding is not cleaned on a regular basis, there are a number of ways that it may deteriorate. Algae and moss may start to grow on the siding, and while these materials may seem fairly harmless, they can cause extensive discoloration to the siding as a result of the chemical waste products they create. When cleaning the siding, you can use a garden hose that has a very strong jet of water or a pressure washer on its lowest setting to remove these materials.

Not surprisingly, the work that will have to go into cleaning siding can be rather demanding and dangerous if your house has multiple stories. Due to these factors, you may find that hiring professional siding contractors can be the safest and most efficient option for cleaning the siding.
