Your home’s exterior appearance can say a lot about how you’re taking care of it. So when your home’s siding starts looking like it’s old and worn out, you should start asking for quotes to replace your siding.
Damaged siding can cause more problems to your home’s exterior—and these problems can become increasingly serious if you keep putting off a siding replacement project.
In this blog, we’re going to provide the different signs that indicate your home needs new siding.
When siding is exposed to heat or moisture over a number of years, bubbling or blisters can appear. Consult with an experienced siding contractor to make sure the damaged area is properly taken care of.
2. Cracks and Holes
Cracks and holes in your siding make your home’s exterior look anything but attractive. Moreover, these issues can contribute to the deterioration of the structural integrity of your home. Before cracks and holes can wreak havoc to your home’s exterior, it’s best to get your siding replaced.
3. Dry rot
Moisture causes wood to decompose, which results in dry rot. This makes the siding appear less attractive and weakens the material. In the end, the siding will be an ineffective shield against the elements.
4. Loose siding
As your siding ages, your home may start to settle. This, in turn, causes the exterior siding to become loose. Incorrect installation may also cause this problem for your home.
5. Need for frequent repainting
Quality siding should be able to retain its color and shape for at least eight years. If you notice your home requiring more frequent exterior painting, look at siding replacement as a possibility.
