Return On Investment (ROI). As a homeowner, it is a concept that you should familiarize yourself with.
There are many different ways that you can recover the money you invest into upkeep, maintenance and improvements in your home. When discussing ROI, those projects are often put on a timetable and homeowners place great value on making decisions that will give them a quicker and more certain return on the dollars they invest.
ROI at Dick’s refers to how long it takes you to recover your money either through a roof project, which we discussed in a previous blog, or by professionally installing siding and insulation. Both roofing and siding will make your home more beautiful and save you money in the long run.
The National Association of Realtors says on their website that “no other feature has as much impact on curb appeal as siding. Clean, well-cared-for siding signals home improvement mastery. Old, worn siding can contribute to a loss of up to 10% of your home’s value.”
Further, the realtors organization said “exterior replacement projects provide the biggest ROI to homeowners.” Besides the obvious benefit of increased curb appeal and value, lower energy costs speed up the ROI you are seeking when you replace your siding.
Dick’s Roof Repair Service has had an excellent reputation for quality service in Southeastern Wisconsin since they first started their business in 1957. During those 60 plus years, many many other roofing and siding companies have come and gone, but Dick’s still retains its reputation as a partner you can trust for all of your roofing and siding needs.
Like so many other construction products, siding options have greatly improved in recent decades. Homebuilders have many more options from which to choose for new construction. Long-time residents looking to improve the appearance and marketability of their home appreciate the value in getting their siding project done right the first time.
Siding product decisions are often driven by the beauty and security they add to your home. Many siding products are available through Dick’s Roof Repair Service. Return on investment is always an added benefit that Dick’s customers appreciate.
Traditional vinyl is a beautiful, durable, low-maintenance product. Over the years, more Americans have opted for vinyl siding than for any other product. With vinyl, you get a wide variety of product and color options and most people can find something to their liking. Vinyl products now can give the appearance of wood without the additional required maintenance and expense.
Scientific advances in today’s vinyl siding products have given this option greater durability without the fading that happened to siding from years past.
Another popular siding product offered through Dick’s Roof Repair Service is cement board. This product is growing in demand as more homeowners, builders and buyers in Southeastern Wisconsin come to appreciate the ancillary benefits, like the fact that it doesn’t attract pests and it resists water and the resulting mold issues.
Cement board, by its very nature, projects durability. It holds color well and has an attractive ROI ratio.
One of the most recent technological advances in siding products available through Dick’s is LP Smartside, a composite product that has all of the qualities of traditional wood, but is much more durable. LP Smartside resists both fungus and termites and it is available in a wide range of colors and textures. An added benefit for Kenosha and Racine residents is that LP Smartside siding products have been shown to perform well in the extreme weather conditions of the upper Midwest.
