The Crucial Role of Quality Siding for Pennsylvania Winters

If you live in Pennsylvania, or one of the other many areas that deal with frigid winters, then you know just how extreme the cold weather can be. With the chill of winter setting in, ensuring that your house is prepared for the climate is essential. What most do not realize is the important role that siding plays in protecting against extreme weather and the outer elements. In fact, the siding on the exterior of your home is the first line of defense against intense weather. Whether you live in Pennsylvania, or another area that deals with extreme winters, ensuring that your siding is in good condition is crucial.

Effective siding will insulate your home, creating a protective barrier that will prevent the cold air from leaking into your house. Not only does this make the interior of your home much more comfortable, but it actually increases energy efficiency, saving you money on utility bills. Siding will also help to balance the temperatures in your home, ensuring that the entire house is comfortable and preventing pockets of cold air.

Proper siding also protects your home from moisture. This prevents water from seeping into the walls of your home, protecting it from mold, mildew, algae, rot, and so much more. Siding also plays a role in preventing ice dams. When combined with proper insulation in the roof and attic, siding can assist in keeping the roof one temperature throughout which can help to reduce the risk of melting and refreezing. 

As you can see, making sure that your siding is ready for the colder temperatures can save you a lot of stress this winter.
