Sometimes, signs of a problem are fairly obvious. For example, recent bad weather can make it clear that you need to book a storm damage repair professional immediately. Other times, however, the damage isn’t very visible, which means you could unknowingly be delaying essential repairs and causing problems to worsen further down the road.
Thankfully, the signs that your siding needs some work aren’t too difficult to identify. Here our experts at Lifestyle Home Improvement Roofing and Construction walk you through some of the most common signs that you might need new siding.
Energy bills through the roof. Your residential roofing and siding systems play a big role in maintaining the thermal envelope of your home and keeping everything as energy-efficient as possible. If you’re noticing a steady increase in your energy bills, your siding may no longer be performing as well as it once did. Contact your local contractor for a quick inspection to determine if it’s time to replace your siding.
Maintenance and repairs. Aging siding requires more maintenance than newer siding. There will come a point when the money you’re paying for frequent maintenance and repairs on older siding will add up to the cost of an actual siding replacement. Use your best judgment if this is the case. A good rule of thumb to remember for siding is that if it’s about two to three years away from the end of its lifespan, it’s more practical to simply install new siding than to have it repaired, repainted or maintained multiple times a year.
Visible damage. With yearly siding and roofing inspections, you can nip common physical problems in the bud. However, if you see visible signs of major damage like rotting, warping, curling, discoloration, fading or cracking, then it’s time to get new siding.
