Signs You Need a Siding Replacement
Your siding is the most easily visible part of your home, yet probably not often thought about. The siding is crucial to the look and aesthetics of your house, as well as the structural integrity. When it begins to crack or decay, you could be at risk for costly repairs if the issue is not addressed quickly. Our team of expert contractors wants to share some things to be on the lookout for that would indicate you may need your siding replaced.
Cracked or Rotting Siding
This will be the most obvious and easy-to-spot warning sound. A simple lap around your house should reveal any cracked or rotting parts that could quickly turn into a larger problem if not repaired quickly.
Blisters or Bubbling
Blisters or bubbling beneath the surface of your siding is another red flag. This is a sign that water has gotten trapped in the siding and the siding is no longer doing its job effectively.
Mold, Mildew, or Fungus
Keep an eye out for mold or fungus growing on the side of your home. This indicates the presence of moisture that could be penetrating your siding. It is not always a cause for panic but is worth investigating further.
When siding shows severe fading and is losing its color, that is a sign it is also losing its waterproofing ability. You should replace your siding before it becomes an issue.
If your home frequently needs to be repainted (should only be every 8-10 years), it could mean your siding is ready to be replaced. If you also notice loose wallpaper or peeling paint on the inside of your home, that can indicate moisture is getting into your walls which can cause significant damage.
Increasing Energy Bills
While many factors can cause your energy bills to rise, if you have ruled out any issues with your HVAC system or drafts coming from an attic or windows, it could be a sign your siding is no longer properly insulating your home. Old or damaged siding does not insulate as well and will cause your energy bills to rise.
