If your home has siding, it’s natural to have concerns about its condition and ability to protect your structure.
When you understand what siding damage looks like, it’s easier to pinpoint it and take the appropriate action at the right time.
Here are some signs that something may be wrong with your siding:
• Consistent marks on your siding: This is a sign of hail damage. While it may not hinder the performance of your siding, it’ll drag down the curb appeal of your home. Vinyl siding is most prone to hail damage.
• Wood rot: If you have wood rot on your siding, you’ll see it falling apart. It’s also soft to the touch. This is something you need to fix immediately.
• Water damage: If water leaks behind your home’s siding, it can eventually make its way to the interior. Should you notice any water or stains on interior walls, check outside to see what’s going on. Your siding could be the culprit.
If you have any reason to believe your home’s siding is damaged, take immediate action. It doesn’t matter if you repair or replace it, as long as you make a sound decision that works for you, your home, and your budget.
