If you’re interested in learning more about how to identify whether your home is in need of a siding replacement, take a look at our blog to learn about the signs your vinyl siding needs to be replaced that you may have missed!
Mold & Mildew
The first sign that you’ll want to consider replacing your siding is mold & mildew damage. While vinyl siding itself isn’t susceptible to molding, it can accrue mildew as grime builds up on the siding. Generally all you’ll need to do when this occurs is spray down the siding with some water to clean everything up.
However, if there are any cracks or malfunctions in your siding, mildew can end up being more significant. This can quickly lead to rot damage, as the moisture that caused mildew works its way into your siding, causing rot instead. If you notice mildew on your siding, be sure to check for any damage to your siding, which could mean there is rot hiding below the surface.
Another sign that your siding is nearing the end of it’s lifespan is when it your siding looks faded. If your siding looks worn out from UV light exposure, it has also been suscepted to plenty of inclement weather, and this can be read as a sign that the siding is nearing the end of its lifespan.
Cracks in the Siding
A clear indication that your siding needs to be replaced is when there is physical damage to the siding itself. If your siding is cracked, or damaged in any capacity, you will want to have it replaced as soon as possible to keep your home protected.
Bubbling & Warping
Sometimes the damage can be more subtle, such as bubbling or warping, and you may think that your home is still protected because the system seems to be in tact. However, this simply means that moisture has worked its way into your siding and is wreaking havoc behind the siding panels.
