Thinking about replacing your siding? Getting new siding can be a big investment, so it’s understandable if you want to determine if it’s necessary before taking the leap. To help guide you, here are key signs that you’re in need of new siding.
- Rotting – A common sign that your siding needs to be replaced is rotting. The main purpose of siding on your home is to protect your home from the natural elements. If your siding is beginning to rot, your siding is no longer protecting your home. If you notice rotting in one particular spot you may be able to replace just one section, but if it’s in several different areas, you may want to consider replacing your siding altogether.
- Gaps & Cracks – Holes, gaps, and cracks in your siding can be unsightly and damage the curb appeal of your home. However, these damages are not just cosmetic — any sort of cracks or gaps can allude to structural damage. Additionally, this also means that there is potential moisture gaining access to the interior of your home.
- Mold & Moisture – If you notice any sort of unwanted moisture and mold on the interior of your home, you should have this investigated immediately. Damaged siding can give moisture an access point into your home. Contact a professional to talk about a possible siding replacement — being proactive with mold and moisture can prevent extensive damage that can be costly.
