How to know when to replace your siding:
So maybe you’ve been living in your home for some time, or maybe you’ve recently purchased an older home, and are considering repairs. Replacing your siding can be a big project, but it’s well worth the hassle in the end. New siding protects your home from precipitation, strong winds, and any pests that might try to work their way in. But how do you know when it’s time to bite the bullet and have your home re-sided?
Here are a couple surefire ways to tell that it’s time to start that project:
When it’s faded – Though this might just seem like a cosmetic issue, faded siding is actually a big indicator that it’s time to look for a contractor. Most popular siding materials, like vinyl and synthetic, are guaranteed to maintain their color throughout the natural lifespan of the product. A high level of fading, say a blue siding that’s a lot closer to white now, is a good indication that you need to have your siding looked at.
When holes appear – Holes in your siding are bad, no matter how you look at it. Insects can get into the interior of your home through these holes, and so can precipitation, which threatens water damage. Sometimes holes in your siding, even the little ones, are a sign that you’ve got some sort of infestation. When you see a hole, it’s a good idea to at least call a professional to get it checked out, if not get your home re-sided.
When it’s cracked or peeling – While storms can sometimes rip pieces of siding off, and while you should definitely get those replaced immediately, a cause for greater concern is when you have portions of your siding that are beginning to crack or peel off for no good reason. This basically means that your siding has seen better years, and isn’t doing its job anymore. The quicker you get it replaced, the better, since cracked and peeling siding can often point to bigger problems than just aged siding.
