In this past year, we have all of a sudden had to do A LOT of work to our house. We’ve been living here almost 10 years so it makes sense that it starts to fall apart on us NOW! Last winter, our basement flooded and we had to toss everything out. Our air conditioner broke down on us twice this summer and we had to get a sewer lateral done in our front yard. While we are doing all these improvements on our house, I’ve started looking at the exterior of out house – specifically our siding!
I happen to think our siding is pretty outdated – we just removed some bushes that were in front of our house so I know we need to give it a good power wash but I never knew I could update the look with new siding!
Updating your siding is a great way to refresh the exterior of your house. If you’re looking for a maintenance-free and long-lasting way to update the exterior of their home, Sears Home Improvement is the place to go. Siding is great for homes (like mine!) that need an update. It doesn’t need to be repainted every few years, it doesn’t rust or dent and its come a long way in the last few years – there’s a big improvement in the vinyl that is making it last longer and even come in a variety of colors.

The surfaces won’t scratch, peel or flake off, plus it’s weather resistant, low maintenance, and durable—it’s an easy-care, low-cost option compared to other types of siding.
