Nothing lasts forever, including your home’s siding. When siding wears out, it can break or start leaking; this can lead to expensive problems. How do you know when your siding needs to be replaced? Here are some tips to help you know when the time is right to contact a siding company.
- Expensive heating and cooling bills- When your home’s heating and cooling bills are seriously out of line with similar homes in the neighborhood, it could be time to look at your siding. Have your home inspected to see if heating and cooling may be leaking through the siding or seams where the siding meets the roof.
- Frequent painting- If you find yourself repainting your siding every five or six years, you probably need new siding. Quality siding should look good for 8-10 years or longer. If your siding is cracking, peeling, or chipping it should be replaced.
- Warping or rotting- If you see warped or rotting siding when inspecting your home, it’s time to replace it before severe damage can occur.
- Loose wallpaper or peeling paint- If you have issues with peeling paint or loose wallpaper inside your home, it could be a sign of rotten or damaged siding that has allowed moisture to soak into the wallboard and damage your interior walls.
