Siding helps protect your home’s exterior from everything from bugs to UV rays, minimizing wear and tear and the chance that your home might fall victim to structural damage. However, like most things, exterior siding doesn’t last forever, so how do you determine when it’s time for home siding replacement?
As one of the area’s leading exterior home remodeling companies, the team from NuHome Exteriors has helped many replace their siding, and we have some tips for you here about when it’s time to upgrade yours.
- When it’s Warping
Having warped siding can soon lead to more serious issues. It can signify that your siding has seen better days and also that there are problems beneath it, like rot or other damage that needs to be repaired ASAP.
- When it’s Rotting
Rotting siding is a sign that something needs to be done immediately to avoid serious structural damage to your household. This often means that moisture has penetrated your siding and could be making its way into your home.
- When it’s Cracking
Cracked siding provides easy entryways for bugs and moisture. However, a few small cracks might mean you simply need to switch out a few panels, or it’s possible to perform some temporary patchwork rather than replacing all of your siding.
- There Are Visible Holes
If there are visible holes in your siding, it’s likely due to damage caused by birds or bugs. This type of damage might seem small at first but it will eventually lead to damage to your siding’s structural integrity and should be addressed sooner rather than later.
- High Energy Bills
Spikes in your monthly energy bills might be a sign that there are air leaks in your home due to faulty siding. Investing in home siding replacement will take care of the issue and even make your home more efficient.
