A siding is a crucial feature in your home exterior. It protects your home against elements and adds a touch of style to it.
But like all functioning features of your home, wear and tear can do a number on it.
Before it becomes useless, it’s essential to watch out for the warning signs that your siding needs replacing, including:
- Presence of dry rot
This is caused by a particular type of fungus eating away the body of your siding. It can do so until your house gets severely affected.
You can confirm if your siding has dry rot by tapping on the siding; if you notice dry rot falling, it’s essential to consider replacing the siding asap. But it’s wise to do so after further consultation with a pro.
- Loose siding
When you have one or two loose or cracked siding, the problem may not cause much harm. But, if there are multiple loose boards, it’s an indication of an even more severe situation.
Regardless of the severity of the damage, cracked or loose boards need to be replaced asap to prevent water from seeping deep into your home.
- Faded siding
Siding color acts as your siding’s waterproofing. When the paint starts to fade, your siding waterproofing is also running its course, and a replacement or a repaint is vital.
- Mold and fungus growth
When you notice mold and fungus growing on your siding, especially around the seams, this means water has found its way into your siding, facilitating the growth of fungus or mold.
Before the damage becomes more serious, consider a siding replacement.
- High energy bills
One of the functions of your home’s siding is to insulate your home from cold and heat. Your siding may be a viable cause if you suddenly receive high energy bills.
So, do a thorough inspection of your siding. If you notice any of these signs, it may be time to consider a replacement.
