Is your home showing signs of wear and tear? Your siding, which is often overlooked to prioritize other areas of the home, might be due for a replacement. Over time, siding can deteriorate due to harsh weather and age, and affect the aesthetic and integrity of your home.

1 . Visible Damage

When you begin to notice visible damage on your siding, such as cracks, warping, rotting, or even holes, it’s likely a notable sign that you’re in need of a siding replacement. If you leave your siding damaged, then you’re compromising the insulation and structure of your home against the weather. 

2. Frequent Painting

Have you been painting your siding more often than you’d like? This may be a sign that the material of your siding is deteriorating and can no longer hold onto paint. It has most likely reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced.

3. Increased Energy Bills

Many homeowners aren’t aware of the important role that siding plays in insulating their homes. But when your siding is old or damaged, it no longer properly protects your home, leading to higher energy bills. If you’ve noticed your energy bills increasing, it may be time for siding replacement. 

4. Mold Growth

The fourth sign to look out for is mold or mildew growing on your home. When moisture builds up and gets trapped behind the siding, mold and mildew can grow. This not only affects the look of your home but can create health risks for everyone living inside because it can seep into the walls and damage the structure. This is an immediate sign of needing siding replacement. 

5. Faded or Discolored Siding

Faded or discolored siding isn’t uncommon for homes that haven’t replaced their siding in a while. The more sun and harsh weather your home faces, the more your siding will lose its color. This can lead to it losing its curb appeal or may even present an underlying problem. We offer CertainTeed, a vinyl siding option that you can choose from, because it has fade-resistant colors to ensure your home looks beautiful for years to come.
