When Is It Time to Replace Your Home’s Siding?
Have you found yourself thinking lately that the appearance of your home just isn’t what you want it to be? Your siding is a major factor that you should consider when wanting to update the overall quality of appearance. Let’s talk about some of the signs you should be looking for to determine if it’s time to replace your home’s siding.
If you have been noticing that your siding is beginning to rot, has holes/cracks, peeling, or even missing sections have fallen off, it may be time to invest in a replacement. Leaving an issue like this unresolved can cause more damage later on whether it be insects burrowing themselves in the holes of the siding, or your energy bills spiking due to poor insulation creating a draft in your home. Making the decision to replace your siding can significantly reduce your bills.
If the siding on your home is damaged it’s affecting the insulation and allowing outside substances into your home, one of those being moisture. Any growth on the siding of your home is an indication that water is getting through and starting to build up in the wall. This can be dangerous because when moisture builds up and turns into mold or mildew, then you’ve got problems bigger than just your siding.
The overall appearance is the first thing someone will look at upon coming to visit your home. If you notice that the paint on your home looks worn out and old, it could be the siding. Your siding and the paint on it should typically last you 8-10 years. Do you have plans to move anytime in the near future? Updating the siding on your home can not only improve the appearance but boost your home’s overall value.
If you have any concerns, the best thing you can do is have a professional come out and take a look. It could end up saving you time and money. We’re always here if you have any questions.
