Are you wondering if it’s time to replace the siding on your home? While some signs and symptoms make it clear that you need new house siding, sometimes it’s not so obvious. This article will explore some of the most common ways to know it’s time for a new siding installation project for your property.
Signs of Siding Deterioration
The most obvious signs that will indicate you need new siding will be clear by looking at the siding itself. Signs of deterioration can include any of the following:
- Cracked or warped siding
- Rotting or signs of a pest infestation
- Extreme fading or peeling paint
- Mold or mildew growth
- Siding that’s missing or sagging
If you can see that your house siding is deteriorating or compromised in any way, you can be fairly confident that it’s time to replace your siding.
Indirect Signs of Siding Issues
It may also be time to replace your siding even if your siding looks fine. Some of the less obvious indicators of siding issues include moisture inside the home and increased energy bills. If your siding is compromised, moisture may be able to enter your home, causing the paint on your interior walls to bubble. If air or moisture is getting through your siding, you may also notice this in your utility bills—higher-than-normal energy bills may be due to failing siding.
