The exterior siding of your home lasts a long time, sometimes longer than the roof. Siding boards, panels, or shingles are designed to form a protective, weatherproof shell for the interior of the home. Like the roof, regularly maintenance on your siding will increase its lifespan and allow you to go longer between replacements.
Of course, when your siding’s lifespan is through, the signs show. It’s almost always clear when a home is ready for siding replacement, even if the damage crept up slowly. Siding that sags, warps, is discolored, or has peeled away from the house may indicate that it’s time to schedule siding replacement for your Minneapolis home.
When should I replace my siding?
The lifespan of your siding can range between 15 and 40 years. Vinyl and fiber cement siding last the longest. Wood siding, while beautiful and versatile, has the shortest predicted lifespan. However, the most important indicator of your siding’s lifespan is how much repair it potentially needs. The more extensive repairs are needed, or the more frequent, the more likely your siding needs replacement.
