Your siding plays a major role in your home’s appeal, energy efficiency and weather protection. If it develops damage, you must deal with it promptly. The longer you wait to resolve the issue, the more likely water damage will occur. Your energy bills might also increase and your indoor air quality might suffer. If you think your siding has a problem, contact a professional as soon as possible.
Read on to find out if you should repair or replace your siding.
When to Repair Your Siding
After an extreme weather event, it’s a good idea to schedule a professional inspection. Be careful about the companies you hire after a storm. Whether you need siding repair or are planning a kitchen and bathroom remodeling project, only work with licensed and insured contractors.
Your contractor can repair small cracks and dents on the surface of your siding. A professional can also deal with loose siding and a little mold. All traces of mold must be removed because they can contribute to the development of rot.
When Siding Replacement Is the Better Option
If your siding is beyond repair, your contractor might suggest replacing it. Rot is a common sign of siding failure. Don’t wait long to address it because it can spread to other parts of your house and compromise its structural integrity.
Water has likely penetrated your siding if you notice water stains on your interior walls. Another typical sign that it’s time for a siding replacement is increased energy bills. If your siding constantly peels or cracks despite regular maintenance, you might need a replacement.
