Your siding protects your home and family against harsh weather conditions and outdoor elements. It helps keep you comfortable and contributes to the overall appeal of your property. Unfortunately, it can get damaged during a serious storm or an accident. Sometimes, problems can also occur when your siding is old and deteriorating. But do you need to repair or replace it?
If there is no extensive damage, it may be possible to repair your siding. For instance, if it has missing sections, your contractor can fix those in no time. They can also replace panels with dents or small holes. Minor chips and cracks on a small area of your siding can also be repaired by a professional. You can also count on them for addressing loose siding panels.
There are instances where it is more reasonable to replace your siding than to have it repaired. Reputable siding contractors will recommend this solution if they see signs of deterioration due to aging. It’s also often more cost-effective to replace your siding than to get repairs if the damage is widespread.
Do you see bubbling or peeling paint on your home’s exterior? It could mean that your siding has water damage. Rot is also a common indication that your siding is approaching the end of its lifespan. This issue can spread without you even knowing it because it occurs beneath the surface of your siding. Tapping your siding with the handle of a screwdriver will help reveal areas affected by dry rot.
