Siding keeps your humble abode appealing, comfortable and protected against the elements. When it suffers damage, you could experience discomfort and might have to deal with increased energy costs. Addressing issues promptly can help you avoid extensive water damage and expensive home repairs.
Determine if this part of your home needs repairs or a replacement.
When Are Repairs Ideal?
A professional can fix a few damaged or missing pieces of siding. Contact an expert immediately if you notice mold and mildew on your siding. Addressing these issues while they are small can help delay the need for a complete replacement. Your contractor will have to find out what’s causing mold and mildew to get rid of them permanently.
Repairs are also possible for minor holes, chips and cracks. Loose panels caused by high winds and improper installation could be fixed by a pro. It’s the same for dents, which usually require the replacement of the affected panels only.
How Do You Know It’s Time for a Replacement?
Siding doesn’t last forever. Sometimes, replacement is the more reasonable option, especially if you are dealing with a persistent issue. When deciding between repairs and a total replacement, consider the age and appearance of your siding. If it’s old and deteriorating, it’s often more cost-effective to get a new one than spend more on constant repairs.
Are there bubbles beneath the surface of your siding? It could be that water is trapped underneath the material, which usually means replacement is necessary. Siding that requires a lot of maintenance and frequent repairs also likely needs to be replaced.
