Home exterior siding is crucial in defending your home against the hot sun, bitter cold, harsh wind, and precipitation. These protections are the very same reasons you should replace weather-worn siding as soon as it’s evident that it can no longer do the job. Many types of siding last for decades, especially when the siding has been well-maintained. However, there comes a time when repairing or repainting won’t be sufficient, and you will need to replace your siding altogether.
What Are Some Signs That My Weather-Worn Siding Needs To Be Replaced?
When checking your siding to see what condition it is in, you may see a few telltale signs that will tell you all you need to know.
- If your siding has begun to rot or crumble, then it cannot perform its protective role. If the damage is light and in small areas, you may be able to repair only the affected area. But if the rot has spread across the exterior, it’s time to replace it.
- Holes and cracks are certainly unsightly, but that’s not all – they are compromising its structural integrity. Gaps in exterior cladding admit moisture, critters, and insects.
- There may be no apparent signs of damage to your home exterior, but you may be experiencing higher-than-normal heating and cooling bills. Check for signs of underperformance, such as drafts near walls and windows or around switches and electrical receptacles. New siding and additional insulation will make a big difference in eliminating drafts and lowering your heating and cooling costs.
