Over time, the siding on your home can become damaged. One of the most common causes of siding damage is weathering. The sun, wind, rain, and snow can take their toll on your siding causing it to fade, crack or peel. While most modern sidings are meant to last for decades, they will eventually show some wear and tear.
Impact damage is another reason why your siding may need to be repaired or replaced. A well-aimed baseball, a wayward tree branch, or even a falling piece of hail can all cause serious damage to your siding.
Gutter damage can cause water to seep under the siding and cause mold to grow. This will eventually lead to damage to both your siding and wall. Poor insulation is another issue that can lead to damage to your siding. When heat escapes from your home, it can cause the siding to warp and buckle.
The good news is that most types of siding can be repaired relatively easily. If you have a small crack or hole, we can simply patch it with some caulk or putty. Installing new siding or even replacing some of the old panels may not be necessary if the damage to your siding is minimal. Of course, if the damage is worse than you hoped for, you shouldn’t hesitate to opt for siding replacement or to tear down everything and have new siding installed.
What’s of utmost importance is to not prolong the repair process as this can cause the damage to worsen and eventually lead to siding replacement being your only option. By acting quickly, you may be able to salvage your old siding and keep your home’s exterior looking great for years to come. More importantly, you and your family will be safer since you’ll be able to avoid any structural damage that can be caused by water seeping through cracks or holes in your siding. Plus, molds and mildew that may develop because of the water damage can be harmful to your family’s health.
