Siding is an indispensable part of your home. It increases your curb appeal and protects it from harsh weather and the elements. However, siding is known to be prone to damage, particularly rainfall, and may need repairs or replacements. Be mindful not to procrastinate on repairs, as this may jeopardize to keep your home safe and intact.
The leading siding installers, Austin Pro Siding & Windows, help you decide whether you should have your siding repaired or replaced.
When Should You Repair Your Siding?
It’s natural to find parts of your siding chipped off or missing, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should replace the entire system. You can contact your trusted contractor to repair the missing parts without the need for a full replacement. However, you will need repairs if you notice mold growth, holes, dents or loose siding panels. Leaving these problems alone will cause more problems in the long run, leading to costly repairs.
When to Replace Your Siding
Sometimes, your best option is to replace your whole siding system. Waiting for your siding to deteriorate is dangerous and will incur you more repair costs in the long run. Once you decide to get new sidings, make sure to contact reliable siding replacement companies like ours. We only install quality siding products that are sure to last, coupled with excellent workmanship, giving you sense of security and getting your money’s worth.
Other signs that call for immediate siding replacement are:
- Excessive maintenance. If you need siding repairs regularly, you may need to replace your entire siding as it may have exceeded its service life.
- Bubbles. Bubbles are caused by water trapped under the siding and will create holes on your roof eventually. You will need to replace your entire siding if you encounter this problem.
- Dry Rot. Even if the rotting is minimal, this is a sign that you need to replace your entire siding before the rot spreads further as it may have spread further within and eaten away at the siding.
- Faded Siding. Most siding colors today are rated to last as long as their predetermined lifespan. If your siding appears aged, this may also indicate that its waterproof capabilities have expired as well.
