when is it time to replacee your homes siding

Is It Cracked Or Loose?

Maybe time has just worn your siding down, or maybe you just had a storm, but if your siding is cracked or loose, you need to have it fixed. If your siding is damaged or loose, it will let in the weather and cold outside. Loose or cracked siding can lead to an increase in your home’s energy bill, so be sure to have any damages repaired quickly.

Fading or Peeling?

Whether you have wooden, plastic, or any other kind of siding, eventually you’re probably going to experience some fading or peeling. If your siding is peeling, it may be able to be touched up, or it may need to be replaced. Get into contact with a professional Maryland siding company to learn if your fading/peeling siding should be replaced.

Is It Rotting or Warping?

If your home’s siding has started to rot or warp, it will need to be replaced. To test for rotting, take a screwdriver and insert it gently under your boards and joists and see if your siding is soft and easy to poke into. If it is, then your siding will need to be replaced, and soon. If your siding is rotten or warped, it could be dangerous, so be sure to get help from a professional Maryland siding company.
