Frequently Asked Questions
Is it time for siding replacement?
Siding makes your home’s exterior more attractive and may ultimately improve its value. Aside from aesthetics, the primary role of siding is to protect the structural makeup of your home. Siding insulates your home from harsh weather conditions and other destructive elements, making it last longer as well as controlling the interior temperature of your home. Taking good care of your siding and making the necessary repairs is important, and many contractors may also recommend a siding replacement twenty years after installation.
What is siding?
Siding is an insulating layer that protects the structure of your home and gives it an attractive, finished appearance. Some common types of siding include vinyl, wood, metal, fiber cement, and insulated siding.
How long does siding last?
The number of years that your siding will last depends on several factors. One of the factors that determine the durability of your siding is the siding material. The second factor that determines the life of the siding is the installation. Getting experienced siding contractors to do the siding installation will save you the cost of frequent replacement. The durability of your siding will also depend on how well you maintain them.
If the siding installation is done properly and your siding is well taken care of, most sidings will last for twenty to thirty years before needing a replacement.
How do I tell if my home needs siding replacement?
Regardless of the material, your siding will need replacement at some point. You can schedule a replacement of the siding after every twenty years, or have an experience contractor come do an inspection to determine is replacement is necessary. If you’re not sure if you need an inspection or not, the following factors should serve as an alert that you need to look into siding replacement:
- Increased energy bills
Siding regulates interior temperatures in your home. The siding reflects away excess heat from the sun, making your house cool during hot summers. In the cold seasons, siding prevents heat loss from your home. If the siding is no longer serving this purpose, your energy bills may go up.
- Discoloration of the siding
Exposure to harsh weather discolors the siding over time. Vinyl siding, for instance, is very prone to discoloration by sun rays. Prolonged exposure to sun rays also makes the vinyl siding brittle and increases the risks of cracking. Metal and wood siding may also get discolored by sun rays and moisture. Although you can repaint the siding, frequent discoloration means it’s time to replace the siding.
- Plants or moss on the siding
If you notice plants or moss growing on your siding, then your siding has absorbed moisture and needs to be replaced.
Moisture and heat from the sun can cause your siding to warp. If your siding has warped, it can no longer offer the intended protection and needs a replacement.
- Rainwater damage
Siding protects the structure of your home from rainwater destruction. However, if the rain starts to destroy the siding, then it’s time to replace it to continue protecting your home.
How do I know my siding needs repair?
If you notice that just a small section of your siding appears damaged, you don’t need to replace the entire siding. Instead, consult one of our qualified experts to come examine your home and make the appropriate recommendation. However, if more than half of your siding needs repair, it may be better to simply replace it. By hiring an expert to take a closer look, you can easily tell if you need to do some siding repair before it’s too late. Here are some potential signs that you need to hire a siding repair specialist:
- Cracked or dented sidings. If you have vinyl sidings, you are likely to notice such damage. Cracks and dents may allow water to leak, and if not repaired on time, they can result in further damage that may be expensive to repair.
- Bubbles or blisters. Water gets trapped underneath your sidings, and eventually evaporates, making your sidings appear blistered. Just like cracks and dents, bubbles and blisters are also common in vinyl sidings.
- Dry rot. This damage is common in wood sidings, especially when water gets trapped under the sidings. It is this moisture that supports the growth of molds that eventually causes your wood sidings to rot.
- Leaks and holes. These siding damages can be disastrous if not detected early and repaired before they extend.
How much does siding repair cost?
The cost of siding repair varies depending on the level of damage, type of siding material, and the size of your home. On average, your siding repair may cost you approximately $500. In addition, you need to set aside siding disposal fees, which also varies depending on the type of siding being disposed of. Mold repair is the most expensive, and you may have to pay more depending on the size of your home and the extent of the damage to your siding. To avoid spending too much on siding repair, check on your roof and siding regularly to identify any damage before it extends further. An experienced construction expert from Midwest can help you estimate the cost of repairs and provide quality services whenever you are ready.
Is siding repair worth the money?
Absolutely. If you feel that the level of damage does not call for an overhaul of your siding, siding repair is a great alternative. You do not need to spend a fortune, when you can just spend a few hundred dollars and have that beautiful finish on your home once more. Consult our Twin Cities siding repair experts and watch your home regain its superb appearance!
