Your Home's exterior needs routine upkeep and maintenance to stay in good condition. This is especially true for your siding. Occasional pressure washing does help keep your siding clean, but there will always come a time when you need to do a complete siding replacement. Years of harsh weather conditions and damage from pests can cause your siding to start breaking down. Fading can set in from prolonged sun exposure, hail can cause holes and dents, and moisture can cause your siding to rot. It's vital to pay close attention to these common signs of siding damage, doing so will help you determine if and when you need a siding replacement.
- Warping. It is a telltale sign that when your siding starts to look bent and begin warping, the underneath layer is rotting which means it's time for an upgrade
- Peeling paint or damaged wallpaper. If you notice that the walls inside of your home being showing signs of damage, it could mean that your siding is allowing moisture in towards the inside of your home, which means you need it replaced.
- Mold or Mildew. If you begin seeing mold or mildew stains on your siding, there's a good chance you need to replace your siding.
- Dry rot. Many times, people will not be able to see that they actually have a dry rot issue. This is because a lot of the time it is hidden from view. You can test for dry rot by slightly tapping around the bottom of your siding and checking if it is still properly intact. If not, it may be time to replace.
