I’m not sure how to articulate the impact of owning a home. Though for the longest time I rented apartments in my neighborhood because it seemed more convenient, I now feel like a grownup as a home owner. However, I went to see an acquaintance who had purchased a condo. Speaking about the installation of siding and updating the doors in her new one-story home, she appeared so mature. I made an effort to not assume anything about home ownership, but I think she rubbed off on me. I started setting aside money for a down payment, and now, two years later, I live in my own condo in a charming neighborhood. When I bought the condo, it wasn’t in the worst condition, so I didn’t have to worry about issues like updating the roof. To enhance its appearance, I did want to make a few adjustments. I initially considered adding siding to improve the house’s appearance. My friend recommended a supplier with a large selection of siding. Since this was my first time dealing with issues like siding installation, I asked a supplier representative to walk me through the odd ones. Hardboard, wood, vinyl, PVC, and fiber cement are all siding options. I decided on a hardboard because it would go well with my condo. Depending on the size of the house, siding installation times can vary. I found the eight-day completion time of the professionals who visited my condo to be quite impressive. Now that I see they also provide deck installation in addition to deck update and repair, I intend to hire them for that as well.
