4 Warning Signs That Might Mean Your Home Needs New Siding
Your siding protects your home from bad weather and serves as an important component of your home’s exterior design. As a homeowner, you need to be aware of the warning signs that mean you need new siding. Today, Colonial Remodeling, the top siding contractor in our area, discusses four warning signs to look out for:
- Loose Siding: There are many causes of loose siding, including wind damage, a settling home and improper siding installation. Loose siding cannot properly protect your home, so you need to address this problem as soon as possible. We can inspect your siding, figure out the underlying cause of the problem and determine the best solution.
- High Energy Costs: Inadequate insulation is one of the most common causes of high energy bills. While many homeowners insulate their attics and crawlspaces, sometimes this is not enough. Fortunately, as a siding replacement expert and James Hardie® preferred installer, we can install our fiber cement siding over continuous insulation. Our siding will protect your insulation and ensure its effectiveness.
- Cracked Siding: Extensive damage to your siding is a clear sign that you need a siding replacement. Cracked siding will allow water to penetrate the underlayment and insulation. Over time, this can cause damage to your home’s structure and render the insulation useless. If the problem occurs in several areas of your home, we generally recommend installing new siding.
- Faded or Outdated Color: Your siding is one of the most visible parts of your home’s exterior, so if it looks bad it can drag down your curb appeal. New, vibrant siding colors can transform your home’s appearance and make it stand out. Our siding products come in a wide range of designs and color schemes, so you can easily find the product that best fits your taste and complements your home’s design.
