Signs You Should Install New Siding
Because of the large surface area your siding covers and the skill set required to perform an installation, it’s no surprise that new siding is a significant investment. This means you want to know for certain that your siding needs to be replaced before you move forward with this home improvement project. Here are the signs to watch out for:
Bubbling, blistering, chipping, or cracking: Exposure to intense heat or high amounts of moisture can cause the siding to bubble and blister. Chipping and cracking are signs of hail damage or other forceful impacts. These signs of damage mean your siding is weak, and you should replace it.
Dry rot: Wood is susceptible to dry rot, a fungus fueled by moisture that decomposes your siding until it simply flakes away. If you’ve got dry rot, replace your siding to stop the spread.
Wildlife damage: Holes from woodpeckers, squirrels, and insects make your home vulnerable to pest invasions. Keep them at bay with new siding.
Interior paint and wallpaper damage: This indicates a moisture problem in your walls. Don’t ignore it or the issue could spread.
Loose siding: Shoddy installation, foundation settling, and other factors can cause the siding to loosen. In this condition, the siding can’t protect your home, so you should address the issue quickly.
No insulation in the walls: An energy audit can reveal whether you have adequate insulation in the walls. If not, while you’re replacing the siding is the perfect time to add more.
Embarrassing color: Your decision to replace your siding may be purely aesthetic. If you’re tired of the outdated look, but your siding can’t be painted, replacing it may be the best option.
Tiresome maintenance requirements: Wood siding must be sanded, painted, and stained to remain durable. If you’re tired of these expensive tasks, put your money toward low-maintenance replacement siding.
Benefits of Siding Installation
If you still aren’t compelled to replace your siding, consider the benefits that await you once you make this improvement:
Increased curb appeal: Installing beautiful, vibrant siding in the color you choose will make you proud to have guests over.
Opportunity to repair hidden structural damage: Issues with your siding sometimes cause hidden damage underneath. Often the only way to address these problems is to remove the old siding, make a repair, and install new siding.
Increased energy efficiency: While the siding is removed, add rigid foam insulation and a house wrap product to insulate your home. This helps your energy bills drop and your comfort level soar.
