“Putting your best face forward” is absolutely essential for people in most social circles looking to make a positive first impression. Similarly, every home makes an instant positive or negative connection when a visitor comes calling at the front door, and that impact begins with the most noticeable aspect of any residence: the siding surrounding the home. Flawless, unblemished and fresh-looking siding delivers an instant unspoken message about the homeowner’s pride in his or her proverbial castle. Conversely, poorly maintained, damaged or faded siding expresses a certain degree of owner apathy or lack of attention. Fortunately for homeowners living in Macomb County, Michigan and their friends and neighbors in surrounding communities, there’s a set of experts in the form of Martin Repair prepared to answer the call for siding repair work. It’s like having your own personal set of handymen ready to swing into action at your call.
The range of home siding choices available has evolved dramatically throughout the years as building materials and the safety of those materials improve, but it is safe to say there remain a wide variety of sidings currently in use across the United States of America. These can include wood siding, aluminum siding, asbestos siding, cement fiber siding, fiberglass siding, vinyl siding and hardboard composite siding.
Siding repair professionals recognize the variety of siding styles utilized across southeast Michigan and beyond, and they have the necessary knowledge to affordably affect siding repairs as needed, helping homeowners avoid the much more expensive prospect of completely residing a home when it’s not really necessary. Equally important, these handymen understand that siding repaired and color-matched properly can enhance the exterior appearance of a home, which translates directly into curb appeal. (As any real estate agent will testify, curb appeal is directly connected to the ability to sell a home more quickly and profitably even in the most competitive real estate markets.)
It is important to understand the fact that repairing damaged siding is far more important than mere aesthetics, however. One of the most important aspects of siding is the protection it offers, forming a first line of defense for residences from the various elements – like heat, cold, rain, snow, hail and wind. When that first defensive barrier is breached, heating and cooling bills can suffer by costing homeowners higher monthly expenses. More significantly, rainwater has unfettered access to a home through damaged siding, potentially damaging interior possessions, walls and even the very foundation of the home. When damage like this occurs, repair bills can rise dramatically. As anyone that’s ever suffered from a water leak can testify, leaks don’t get fixed on their own.
Siding repairs are one of those things that simply can’t wait where home ownership is concerned. Poorly maintained homes run the risk of harming property values throughout the neighborhood, and most certainly generate negative comments from passers-by.
Why not take an easy, affordable step towards restoring your home to its original beauty if damaged residential siding is weighing your home’s value down, and reach out to the handyman experts at Martin Repair?
