Siding and Indianapolis Real Estate By Joseph Feross

When you are looking to buy a home in the Indianapolis real estate market, the condition of the outside of the house is just as important as the condition of the inside of the house. The siding of your home is a major consideration, and knowing what to look for and the different types of siding available can play into your decision to buy. Fist off, you have to consider the type of siding available on the Indianapolis real estate market. Most home have some type of vinyl siding that is usually provided by contractors or major stores. Sears has been famous for years for providing quality siding, and many of the homes in the Indianapolis area are covered by it. The nice thing about vinyl siding is its longevity. Vinyl will never smear or need repainting, however it can seem to fade over time. Also, it is relatively cheap. The downside is that vinyl siding sometimes doesn’t hold up to the Indiana storms, and may need to be replaced. Another type of siding is aluminum siding. While more commonly found on the sides of commercial Indianapolis real estate, aluminum siding is durable, yet easily dents. Considering the notable hail storms that Indianapolis suffers in early spring, this could be seen as a determent. Aluminum is extremely cheap, but loud and often times in need of replacement. Also, aluminum is a poor retainer of heat and requires extra insulation. A third type of siding that is common on older homes is brick. Newer homes in the Indianapolis real estate market have brick facades made from vinyl, but true brick is desirable due to its never needing to be pained and its extreme durability. Brick is the most expensive siding to have, and proves difficult when trying to fit your home with new pipes or cables, but is considered by many homeowners to be the best type of siding to own. Depending on the age of your home, you may run into houses that have wooden siding. While elegant and easily painted, wood siding is the worst siding to own. Wood rots , warps and fades easily, and needs painting on a yearly. Also, the Indianapolis real estate market is one that has to deal with insects, and in the summer and autumn months your wood siding will become home to thousands of termites and other wood burrowing insects. Also, wood retains mold easier than any other siding, and can be costly to replace. A growing trend in the Indianapolis real estate market is to use stucco for your siding, which creates a

Storms and Indianapolis Real Estate By Joseph Feross

When you live in Indiana, you have to submit to the fact that you will occasionally have to deal with violent storms. Indiana is on the edge of the plains states, and still a part of tornado alley, and as a result the Indianapolis real estate market routinely has to deal with high winds, violent rain storms and brutal snow storms in the winter. While most builder accommodate for this, some have gone lax in their requirements, and these are the ones to watch for. When shopping for your home, what warning signs should you look for concerning weather damage in Indianapolis? First off, consider the condition of the roof. Hail is a common occurrence in Indiana, and Indianapolis real estate is not spared from the advances of early spring storms. Most roofs need replacing within 15 years, but in Indiana the average age of a roof seems to be 10. Pay close attention to the roof you get and ask for an inspection before committing to purchase. Secondly, you may want to consider the condition of any grates and gutters that surround your Indianapolis real estate. Hail doesn’t just fall down; it can be blown from side to side as well. Often times, vents and gutters will show signs of wear and tear. While marble-sized dents won’t matter much, larger dents will be worthy of insurance companies attention. Again, ask for a home inspection and have an insurance representative pay close attention before signing. Wind damage is also a concern for your home. Indianapolis real estate is subject to violent thunderstorms in the spring and fall, and shingles will often times take the hit first. Look for any loose shingles or depressions in the roof of your Indianapolis real estate. Make sure that your roof is level and that nothing appears out of place. Even if the shingles are still intact, loose shingles could mean problems with ripping or leaks later on. Like you roof, the siding of your Indianapolis real estate is also subject to the elements. Mo0st Indiana homes have vinyl siding, and while a good and cheap insulator for your home, it can easily be ripped off by an Indiana thunder storm. Make sure your siding is firmly attached, and tend to any loose pieces before the problem becomes expensive. Antennas, while rare on Indianapolis real estate, can also take damage in storms. Antennas are commonly found near older homes, and often times experience rusting or bends due to the elements. Make sure your antenna is properly secured, and that your roof or siding isn’t in danger of being punctured if it falls. Your home is your castle, and your castle is going to take some hits. Indianapolis real estate is designed to withstand the elements, but there’s only so much that a home can take. Before you commit to buy, make sure your home is checked for any damage. After all, catching something minor now can save you a fortune in repairs in the future.
