Signs Your Home Needs a New Siding System

Just like other components of your home, your siding shows subtle signs when it’s beginning to fail. Signature Exteriors, a premier horizontal vinyl siding installation company, lists the important things to watch out for:

Signs Your Home Needs a New Siding System

Cracks

Cracks in your siding might only seem like an aesthetic issue, but it can also compromise the structural integrity of your home. Any gap or hole admits moisture, the worst enemy of wood. This also allows critters and insects to settle into the area.

Rot

Siding protects your home from the elements. When it begins to rot, however, its performance is compromised. If the rot only affects a few areas, you can repair it, but when the extent of the damage is big, schedule a siding replacement as soon as possible.

Mold or Mildew

Moisture buildup can either lead to mold or mildew growth in your interior space. When they appear in the exact spot where siding damage has occurred, replace the system before the problem gets worse.

Increased Utility Costs

One of the primary functions of your siding is to protect the insulation on your walls. Damaged siding, however, admits water, which can saturate the material and affect your home’s energy efficiency.
