5 Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Siding

Now that spring is here to stay, you can now start making your way through the lengthy home improvement list you created over the winter.  Maybe you’ve located a couple of leaks in your roof that you need to get repaired, or maybe the kitchen could use a new paint job? What better time than spring to get these tasks taken care of before it gets too hot and you want to go on vacation.

 

The exterior of your home is just as important as the inside but often will get overlooked by homeowners. As a company that provides vinyl siding in South Jersey, we know a thing or two about the condition of your siding. Here are five signs that it’s time to replace your siding.

 

1.) Mold

 Nobody likes to see mold or fungus on the siding of a house which makes this one of the clearest signs that it’s time to replace your siding. In most cases, moisture is the issue that leads to the growth of mold on siding.

 

2.) Cracks

 If you begin to notice cracks, holes or chips on your siding, it’s likely that siding replacement will be necessary. By having one of our professional contractors come out to inspect the exterior of your home, they will be able to determine if you need a small repair or total replacement.

 

3.) Peeling Paint

 Is the wallpaper or paint in your home beginning to sag or peel? This is usually due to water damage on the other side of the wall, which is closest to your siding. Moisture that is generated by old or decaying siding needs to be replaced to help prevent any more damage to your home.

 

4.) Warped Siding

 When moisture tries to fix itself under your siding panels warping is the result. This is the buckling or bulging you may have noticed on your siding and should be replaced by one of our expert contractors.

 

5.) Your Utility Bills Increased

 While this is not as common as others, an increase in your utility bills could be caused by underperforming siding. Maybe you caught a draft near the window which has you questioning your current siding. Replacing your siding can not only help with eliminating drafts but also with saving you money.
