Signs Your Siding Needs Replacement

With spring just a few short weeks away, you may be thinking about home improvement projects to undertake. Siding is an integral part of your home, protecting critical elements of the building from heavy winds, rain and snow throughout the year. Before it starts to fail, your siding will begin exhibiting signs that a replacement is necessary. If you’ve noticed any of the following in your siding, schedule an appointment to have it inspected and replaced by a licensed contractor.

Visible bubbles and blistering

Depending on the quality of the siding, you may notice it beginning to bubble during hotter months, especially if it is getting direct sunlight. A few small bubbles may not be concerning, but if they are rapidly growing in size and happening around the structure, you should have it replaced.

Noticeable cracking

Can you see cracks in the siding, or pieces beginning to slip from their original location on the house, you should keep an eye for more issues. When more of your siding is cracked than intact, your home becomes vulnerable to wind and moisture, which can be absorbed through the walls and affect the interior of your home. If you have cracked siding, you may notice peeling or bubbling paint or wallpaper inside of your home, which can spread through your home as more of your siding is damaged.

Dry Rot

Dry rot occurs when the wooden parts of your home get wet, which can be exposed between poorly installed siding. After being exposed to moisture for long periods of time, fungus can form and begin to eat away at the wood, compromising the integrity of the structure and potentially making your home unsafe. If you notice gaps in your siding, it is critical to have it checked by a professional contractor.
