when to replace siding

Replacing your old siding doesn’t have to be a guessing game. Certain clues indicate serious damage or deterioration, which should be compelling enough to convince you to buy a new one.

Woodbridge Home Solutions discusses the red flags to watch out for that point to new siding installation:

Severe Structural Imperfections

Big cracks or holes are more than just aesthetic issues. These gaps set the stage for water intrusion, causing the wall to weather. If water can get in, so can critters. Isolated structural problems are not beyond repair, but affected panels are not always worth saving. It might be more financially sensible to replace your structurally unsound siding system in its old age.

Widespread Moisture Concerns

If your wood siding has succumbed to moisture, its condition would be irreversible. Honest siding companies will say that decay takes away the rigidity of the timber–- a quality that makes it a desirable building material.

Based on experience, Woodbridge Home Solutions considers the proliferation of mold as another inconvenient consequence of having cracked siding. Water can make its way into the home, creating environments conducive to the fast growth of mold.

Taxing Maintenance Duties

Are you tired of getting your siding re-painted, or dealing with dents and scratches after a storm? Replacing it with a low-maintenance material is the only solution. It may not seem like a lot, but the cost of periodic siding repair jobs adds up over time.

Steep Energy Bills

Upgrading your siding system is an excellent opportunity to reduce your energy expenses monthly. Installing an energy-efficient material like vinyl with built-in insulation can reduce heat transfer. When properly installed, it eliminates unwanted drafts and conditioned-air leaks to keep your space heating or cooling costs to a minimum.
