4 Signs You Need New Siding

If you own an older house, eventually your siding will need to be replaced. While you might want to put it off, leaving up damaged siding could cause further problems and damage other parts of your house. Our team can provide a quote on our siding replacement services.

If you’re not sure if now is the time to get this project started, here are a four of the most likely times new siding is needed.

1. Bubbling or blistered siding

This can happen when siding is exposed to superfluous amounts of heat or moisture. If they weren’t there when the siding was installed, it shouldn’t be there now. Replace affected areas of the siding and work with a reputable siding contractor to identify the cause and prevent it from happening again.

2. Hail damage

Chipping, denting and cracking are all evidence that your home’s siding has been damaged by hail. Because hail oftentimes limits the ability of siding to properly act as a protective barrier against nature’s elements, it is a good idea to replace your home’s siding once it shows hail damage.

3. Outdated color

If you’re hoping to sell your home, an outdated exterior color could turn off potential buyers. Update the color to make your entire home feel newer.

4. Wildlife damage
