4 Signs to Replace Your Siding

4 Signs to Replace Your Siding


Your siding plays an important role in protecting your home while adding style and curb appeal. Depending on the material and upkeep, siding can last upwards of 40 years. However, it’s important to regularly inspect your siding for damage and determine if you should repair or replace it. Here are the key indicators that your siding needs an upgrade:

1. Cracks & Gaps 
Cracks and gaps in your siding can lead to moisture infiltration, mould, mildew, and interior water damage. Promptly seal cracks and gaps to prevent further damage. If the damage is too far gone, you may need to replace your siding. 

2. Peeling Paint
Faded or peeling paint is more than an aesthetic issue; it may indicate that your siding is losing its protective layer. Repainting can be a temporary fix, but suggests that the siding may be nearing the end of its lifespan. 

3. Warping & Buckling 
Warping or buckling siding panels can compromise the structural integrity of your home’s exterior, leading to further damage. If you notice any panels that are not laying flat against your house, it’s time to consider replacement.

4. High Energy Bills 
If you notice unusually high heating or cooling bills, your siding may be to blame. Damaged and aging siding impacts its integrity. A siding replacement will ensure a tight seal and increase your home’s energy efficiency. Consider investing in insulated vinyl siding for greater results. 

Replacing your siding is a significant investment that can enhance your home's appearance, improve energy efficiency, and protect your property from damage.
