Why do homeowners replace their siding?
It’s Cracked or Loose > If a home’s siding is loose, split, or cracked (as a result of age or damage from serious storms), a careful inspection can help homeowners determine possible next steps.
Wood Siding is Faded or Peeling > Wood siding should keep its shape and color for 8-10 years under average conditions. If it requires more frequent maintenance, it may be time to replace it. Some families opt for sun-resistant vinyl siding, fiber cement siding, or steel siding, which are available in a variety of styles and colors; need minimal maintenance; and retain their pigmentation for decades.
Wood Siding is Rotting or Warping > If a home’s siding has begun to warp, rot, or become soft, it is time to replace it. Consider an inspection, which will reveal underlying softness, which may be signaling irreparable damage.
It’s Growing > Any type of growth such as fungus, mold, algae, or mildew on siding can flag issues, including trapped moisture that may be seeping into interior walls. Although some fungus and mildew is harmless, it’s good to remove it throughout the year and inspect frequent growth areas to ensure protection from water intrusion.
Utility Bills are Increasing > If a family’s heating and cooling bills have gone up significantly and inexplicably, it could mean siding has reached the end of its functional life (and/or that new roofing and windows/doors may be in order). Comparing heating and cooling bills with neighbors (if possible), could reveal that a home’s siding is no longer providing proper insulation.
