Unlike new roof installation projects, homeowners rarely consider replacing their siding unless there is an urgent need for it. Your siding represents more than half of your exterior appearance so if your goal is to increase the value and the curb appeal of your home, siding replacements is one of the most effective ways to do it.
Siding jobs, unfortunately, do not come cheap so homeowners tend to upgrade their siding only when their old siding has already reached the end of its life span. But when this should be done isn’t always clear. Let our experts at Timberland Exteriors show you the signs that your home may be due for some brand-new siding.
Frequent Maintenance and Repairs
Some wood and fiber cement siding need regular painting to look their best. Depending on the age of your siding, its painting needs can range from once every few years to several times a year. The older your siding is, the more painting it needs. If you notice you’re needing more repair and maintenance visits than before, then you may need to consider replacing your aging siding.
Loss of Energy Efficiency
If you’ve checked all other parts of your home and seen that your increasing energy bills are not caused by other factors, then your siding may be the culprit. Conduct an energy audit to really pinpoint what’s causing your losses. Performance issues are a sure sign of siding deterioration.
Of course, sometimes the signs are a little too obvious. If you see chipping, warping, cracking, rotting, or any other visible sign of physical damage, it’s time to contact your local siding and window installation service for a replacement.
