Over time, your home’s wood siding has a way of losing its original appeal. As this happens, it’s up to you, the homeowner, to decide which steps to take next.
Here are three things you should do if you find that your wood siding is rotting:
· Pinpoint the cause: For example, you may come to find that your gutters are leaking, thus leading to water seeping behind the siding. If you’re able to pinpoint the cause and stop it immediately, you may be able to prevent additional damage.
· Consider your repair options: There are many ways to repair wood siding, such as by removing and replacing rotted sections. This may not be a long-term solution, but it could buy you a bit of time until you decide what to do next.
· Replace your wood siding: If your old wood siding has seen better days, it’s time to consider replacing it. There are many types of replacement siding, including vinyl and fiber cement.
Wood siding isn’t meant to last forever. If you’re ready for a change, don’t hesitate to learn more about your options and decide which steps to take next. It won’t be long before your old siding is gone and your home looks as good as new.
