Signs Your Siding Needs Replacing

Signs Your Siding Needs ReplacingSiding Pro can install siding that can protect your home and give it a personal touch, but it won’t last forever. Replacing your siding can be an expensive undertaking. Knowing what signs to look for will save you a lot of time and money.

Rotting and/or warping

The first step is to do a thorough visual inspection of the exterior of your home. Look for signs of bubbling, warping, or rotting, which can indicate water damage. Rotting is a sure sign that your siding needs repair or replacement. This could lead to moisture seeping into the inner walls.

Cracked or Loose siding

Also on your visual inspection, look for cracked or loose siding. Heavy storms can put a beating on your homes siding. Damaged siding should be fixed or replaced as soon as possible to prevent possible leakage, which could result in expensive repairs.

Severely Faded Siding

Certain types of siding are designed for the paint to last only as long as the expected life of the siding. If the paint has begun to fade on your siding, you might want to give it a good inspection. If you have wood siding, a poor paint job can last as little as two years. In this case repainting is the easy option. If you have James Hardie siding or HardiePlank siding, which is designed to hold paint for at least 15 years, and your paint is fading, then you might want to give your siding a thorough inspection.

Peeling Paint or Loose Wallpaper Inside Home

If the siding has failed and water begins leaking inside the home, damage may become visible inside the home. Peeling paint or loose wallpaper can be an indication that the siding needs replacement. And if you’re seeing damage inside, than you might have some costly repairs ahead of you.

The best thing to do is, inspect the siding from time to time, especially after heavy winds and strong storms. If you have noticed any of these signs of wear in your inspection, it is best to have a professional company’s number, such as Siding Pro of Colorado, handy just in case.
