Your siding covers most of your home’s exterior, meaning it significantly affects how your property looks. It offers protection against the elements and helps keep your living space comfortable. Damage could occur due to heavy debris or naturally as the siding ages. When it has issues, you must address them immediately before they cause further problems to other parts of your house.
Here are tips to help you decide between siding replacement or repair.
Loose siding panels could be a result of improper installation or high winds. Repairs are possible if there are only one or two affected panels. The panels might require replacement if there are significant cracks on the material’s surface.
Holes, Chips, and Cracks
Holes and gaps on your siding could cause water to enter your home. They could develop due to impact from debris or small creatures like birds and insects. Your contractor could repair small holes, cracks, and chips on your siding.
Dry rot is something you should not take lightly. It’s a sign that your siding is reaching the end of its life. This issue could also spread to other areas of your house, so deal with it as soon as possible. Dry rot typically begins beneath the surface and will slowly consume the rest of the insides of your siding. Contact a siding installation contractor to determine if the damage could be repaired or if a replacement is a more appropriate option.
Does your siding require more frequent cleaning, repainting, or refinishing? It could be a sign that a replacement is necessary. Another sign you need new siding is constant repairs.
