4 Telltale Signs That You Need New Siding
Elements that affect your home’s exterior and structure, such as siding replacement, should always be a priority. So if you notice the following telltale signs, it’s time to get in touch with a professional siding contractor.
- Your Siding Requires Frequent Repainting – Frequent sanding and scraping eventually wears out the siding’s outer surface, to the point where paint or stain won’t stay on it for long. Our steel siding options include a wide selection of factory-applied colors that never require repainting. Not only does it reduce repainting costs, it also gives you the flexibility to choose the colors you want.
- Cracked, Bubbling or Damaged Siding – While isolated damage can be repaired, widespread cracks, bubbling and other signs of damage will require a full replacement. Your siding is your home’s first line of defense against the elements, so you should maintain a complete barrier. As a siding contractor that specializes in steel siding, we can guarantee that once you have your siding replaced, you won’t have to worry about these issues anymore.
- Loose Siding – There are many causes behind this, such as installation error, wind damage, or, in case of vinyl siding, exposure to sunlight. Loose siding is not only unsightly, it also exposes the drywall to moisture intrusion, which can cause bigger problems that may necessitate costly repair work.
- Your Energy Bills Are Higher Than Ever – Siding is part of your home’s energy envelope, which includes the windows, doors and attic. Together, they help maintain a consistent indoor temperature that prevents heat transfer. The reduced heating and air conditioning requirements result in less energy consumption and lower energy bills. If your energy bills increase during weather extremes, then your old siding may be part of the problem and may need to be replaced.
