Your siding is like the skin of your house and replacing it is a major investment. It is the single biggest change you can make to the exterior of your house due to its sheer surface area so if you are thinking about a replacement, you want to make sure that it is out of necessity. So how can you tell when it’s time for a replacement? A commercial roofing services provider shares three sure signs.
1. Extensive Rotting
The primary role of siding is to protect your home from the elements. If it beginning to crumble because of rot, then it is no longer able to carry out its primary function. If the rotting is confined to a small area, then you may be able to repair only the affected area. But if the rot has spread to a significant portion of your exterior, then you definitely need to replace it.
2. Too Much Maintenance Required
If you live in an older house that still has its original wood siding, it is likely that keeping it in good shape is taking too much time and energy. If you no longer have the patience to keep repainting or restaining your wood siding every few years, then talk to your residential roofing and siding contractor about upgrading to low-maintenance vinyl siding.
3. When the Local Wildlife Has Taken Over
When there is too much damage caused by woodpeckers, squirrels, burrowing insects, and other pests, then a siding replacement is definitely in order. Damage caused by local wildlife not only decreases your home’s value but also causes your utility bills to skyrocket.
