Siding is a great way to improve the aesthetics of your home while also providing it extra protection and thermoregulation. Just as the roof requires roof inspection, your existing siding may require a deeper look to find out if it’s experiencing any problems
This type of siding is the easiest to inspect since the signs of damage are very obvious. The two you need to watch out for are peeling paint and rotten portions of wood. Paint that’s starting to peel is an early warning sign of water damage and is your cue to either have the wooden siding repaired or replaced.
Rotten portions, on the other hand, can either mean that the siding has experienced water or insect damage. You’ll want to get in touch with your local siding expert so that you can make a more informed decision regarding how to address this.
Although vinyl siding is generally more resilient than its wooden counterparts, it still experiences weathering. The most common problems these siding experiences are physical damage – either from hail and sleet, or the wayward baseball hitting its surface. Knicks and chips aren’t that dangerous, but they do make your exterior look bruised up.
These physical signs become a big concern, however, if the small holes fill with water. Water damage isn’t obvious on vinyl siding. You’ll need the help of an experienced siding contractor to check if your exterior cladding is already suffering from significant water damage.
Cleaning the Siding
A good way to keep your siding in good condition is by cleaning it. Organic material, such as leaves and twigs, aren’t outright harmful, but they can cause all sorts of problems once they start rotting and spread their accumulated moisture on the surface of the siding.
As your siding and home roofing install experts, we recommend you schedule an inspection after every two months so you’ll have a better idea what’s the condition of your siding.
