All assets within your home eventually need to be upgraded. From your kitchen to your roof and siding, everything has a lifespan. The one part of your home that can increase your curb appeal the most is updating your siding. So, to make sure that your siding doesn’t surpass its lifespan, in result making your home unsightly and affecting the structure of your house, here are some top signs that it’s time for new siding.
1. Interior Paint or Wallpaper Peeling:
When moisture makes it way into the walls of your house, you’ll start to notice that paint and wallpaper is peeling. This could be a leak stemming from your siding to your roof, so addressing this situation sooner rather than later will stop any additional problems such as mold growth from popping up.
2. Cracked or Rotted Siding:
Walk around your house and take a serious look at your siding. There could be obvious signs that there is damage beyond repair. If you see any cracks or if you poke around and there’s rot beneath, it’s time to contact a professional.
3. Faded Siding:
If you purchased a lower quality of vinyl siding in the past, check out the side of your house that gets more sun. If you can notice that one side of your house has faded far more than other sides, it’s definitely time to consider upgrading.
4. Frequent Painting Required:
If you’re using cedar siding on your home, it should need to be repainted every 8-10 years or so. If you’ve found your paint chipping and needing to be repainted every 3-6 years, the problem may not be the paint but actually the siding itself.
5. Higher Energy Bills:
If you’ve noticed that you’re paying more money on your energy bills than you were in the past, it could be because of your siding. Home siding when broken down can truly hurt the efficiency of your house staying insulated. If your energy bills are rising, look around your house and try to find out what is causing this.
