Siding is not only essential to the appeal of your home but also for its protection against harsh weather and elements. However, like any component of your house, it can be damaged or may need replacement. Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t delay its repair or replacement to keep your home safe and comfortable.
Read on to find out whether you should have your siding repaired or replaced.
When to Repair Your Siding
When your home has missing sections of siding, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to replace the entire thing. You can hire a professional to repair your siding as long as the damage is not extensive. If you see signs of rot or mold, contact a pro for repairs. However, you must make sure that all of the mold growth has been removed or the problem will just recur. Lose siding panels as well as minor holes, dents, chips, and cracks can also be repaired.
When to Replace Your Siding
Sometimes, your best option is to get a new siding installed. Waiting to replace a deteriorated siding can actually cost you more in the long run. When it’s time to get new siding, make sure to hire a skilled contractor who offers quality products. At Woodbridge Home Exteriors, we only install quality replacement windows and siding from leading manufacturers.
If your siding requires too much maintenance, you should consider getting a new one. Bubbles underneath the surface of your siding indicate that water is trapped under or on the material itself. Another sign that you need a siding replacement is dry rot. You must address this problem immediately to prevent further home damage.
