When siding isn’t properly maintained, it can become a liability on your home.
When you look at the exterior of a home, you probably notice the material installed over the framed-out walls. This material is known as siding, and it serves a few key purposes on a structure. The first is to improve the energy efficiency of the space. Although modern construction materials are more efficient and durable than ever before, the walls of a home still have small cracks and gaps that allow heated and cooled air to escape. By installing a layer of siding on the outside of these walls, the efficiency goes up, which means the energy bills go down.
Another key purpose of siding is to enhance the visual appeal of the structure. A home without siding looks incomplete, as the siding finishes the appearance and makes it look better. When siding isn’t properly maintained, it can become a liability on your home. Some of the most common problems associated with damaged siding include water damage, higher humidity levels, pest infestations, and wood rot.
