Your siding covers a large part of your exterior, meaning that it contributes greatly to your home’s curb appeal. When signs of deterioration become apparent, not only will your home look less attractive, but its market value can also plummet. Below are some problems you must address as soon as possible.
Cracks and Chipping
Aging and the elements can cause your siding to chip or crack. This is especially common with fiber cement siding. While fiber cement is known to be one of the most durable materials out there, it doesn’t have the same flexibility as aluminum or vinyl.
Rotting or Warping
These are signs that there is extensive damage on your siding. Warping often occurs in aluminum and vinyl siding that are at the end of their lifespan. The best way to spot warping is to look at the home from a distance during broad daylight. Rotting is the more serious form of damage. If you see it, you must call for siding repair immediately. Otherwise, it could spread to other parts of your home.
Mold and Mildew Growth
Evidence of mold or mildew shows that your siding needs extensive repair or a total replacement. You may notice obvious dark spots and splotches on the surface; however, the damage could be more widespread underneath the structure. Installing new siding is more beneficial in many ways. Apart from improving curb appeal, you can also enjoy higher savings on your energy bills.
