Are you looking to spruce up the exterior of your home? Investing in siding replacement can give you a fresh new look while also increasing the value of your home. On the other hand, there are instances where siding replacement is necessary, so here are the top warning signs of needing your siding replaced.
- Warping or Rotting – By conducting a visual inspection on the exterior of your home, you will be able to identify issues such as warping or dry rotting in your siding. If you notice warped siding that has soft spots underneath it, this is a sign that damage is being done beneath the surface of your home. In this case you should have your siding replaced immediately.
- Constantly Needs a Paint Job – Have you invested in a paint job time and time again, and still end up with dingy looking siding just a few years later? If so, this is a sign of problematic siding. A paint job should last you at least 8 years — any sooner and you should be concerned with the condition of your siding.
- Loose or Cracked Siding – It’s not uncommon to replace a piece of siding here or there after a big storm. However, it’s important to inspect the area around the damage and ensure that there are no underlying issues. Loose siding is a prime access point for moisture, which can cause major damage. If you have an excess amount of loose or cracked siding you might want to consider a siding replacement altogether.
- Mold – If you begin to notice mold growing on your siding, you should have siding replacement done immediately while trying to rid of the mold. Mold is a sign of present moisture. It’s important to have siding replacement immediately before the mold eventually seeps into the interior of your home.
