Renovation Tip #9: Energy Efficiency



Bluebird Motel · Nanaimo, BC · When we purchased the Bluebird Motel, the property required some TLC, and one of the first things that we did was to replace the cedar shakes on the exterior of the building. The old shakes were in poor condition, and it made the motel seem outdated.


We replaced the cedar shakes with vinyl siding, which not only updated the property visually but added longevity to the motel. Vinyl siding will not rot or flake like wood siding and does not need to be repainted.


When should you consider replacing the siding on your home? If your current siding is loose or missing siding, if the siding is cracked or warped, or if your current siding is rotting, then you know it’s time to make the investment in new siding. While it can be daunting, updating your siding can save you from further expensive repairs in the future.
