Your home’s siding is one of the most important aspects of your home’s exterior shell. It serves a number of beneficial purposes, including keeping your home protected from the elements and pests, as well as boosting your home’s insulation, and improving curb appeal & resale value! Considering how many benefits there are to gain from having well-installed and maintained siding, it is important to ensure that your home’s siding is kept in good repair! If you’re interested in learning more about identifying the signs that your home’s siding needs to be replaced, keep reading below for more information!
Warping & Bubbling
The first signs that you’ll need to replace your siding are when you begin to notice that your siding is bubbling and warping. This is a clear indication that something is going on below the surface. Your siding has likely malfunctioned in a particular area and moisture is finding its way into the system, which can quickly destroy the integrity of your walls. If you notice that your siding is warping, you will want to have it replaced as soon as possible!
Another sign that your siding is aging is when it looks faded. UV light will cause your siding to lose its luster over time, which could mean it’s worth considering a replacement if your home doesn’t seem to pop like it used to.
Mold & Mildew
Another sign that your home may have moisture issues is mold & mildew build up. If your siding is accumulating a great deal of mildew, you will want to spray it down periodically to keep the siding clean, as mildew can deteriorate the siding over time. However, the most concerning issue with mildew & mold on your siding is that it indicates there is a moisture problem that could be lurking below the surface. If you find your siding is accumulating a great deal of mildew, you will want to examine the siding for any additional signs of damage to ensure moisture isn’t finding its way into your walls.
Broken Siding Boards
Lastly, if you see any damage to your siding, you will want to have it replaced. Even small cracks can allow water into your walls, which can quickly cause significant rot damage if left untreated. If you’re interested in saving yourself from costly repairs, be sure to examine the siding on your home and repair any problem areas as soon as possible.
