Siding protects your home and it’s the single greatest factor in determining the overall look and feel of your house from the outside. As a homeowner, replacing your siding has many benefits but how do you truly know its time for an upgrade? Explore some of these signs below to tell its time for new siding.
Your House Needs To Be Repainted Constantly:
If the paint on your current siding needs to be repainted every few years, there is something wrong with the site. Besides the fact that you are wasting thousands of dollars to get your house repainted, siding should hold paint for much longer than every couple of years.
Cracked or Loose Siding:
With just a little bit of time, walk around your house and do a visual inspection of the siding. If the siding on your house are cracked or loose in multiple places, it may be time for new siding. If only a few boards are damaged or loose that can be repaired but it it’s widespread that’s a huge cause of concern.
Increased Heating & Cooling Bills:
If you notice over the years that your heating and cooling bills start to climb, there is a good chance that air is leaking into your house. Siding and insulation that has broken down can be a primary cause of heat and cooling bills climbing.
Peeling Paint or Wallpaper Inside the Home:
Peeling paint or wallpaper within your house can often be the cause of water making its way into your house. If your siding in faulty, moisture can seep its way into the interior walls of a home.
Fungus or Mold Growth:
Any mold or fungus growth on your siding can be a sign that moisture has made its way into the underside of your siding. While not all mold growth means you need to replace your entire siding system, it is reason enough to investigate further.
