    It Is Time to Repair or Replace Your Home Siding

    Posted in:

    Living in New Jersey means that you have the luxury of experiencing the seasons. The beauty of summer is followed by the brisk winds and rains of autumn. New Jersey then gets to experience the cold snow and rain associated with winter, including those lovely ice storms we have come to know and love. Then, we jump right into Spring with beautiful showers and the new growth of plants (and weeds) taking over our yards and homes. While the change of seasons may be a gorgeous event, our homes often suffer the consequences of rough weather and constant change. With winter almost behind us, now is the perfect time to check on your home’s siding and repair or replace it for a better look and more home protection.

    Inspect Your Siding

    Now that the evenings are getting a little longer, it is a great time to get outside and inspect your siding. As a homeowner, there are certain signs you can look for to see if your siding has been damage or needs to be removed. The most common thing many homeowners notice is the increased mildew on the side of their home. A small amount of mildew may not be a large problem. However, as the siding becomes weakened, the mildew problem grows, damaging more siding as it increases over the exterior of the home.

    Another thing to look for is issues inside your home. Siding is designed to protect your walls and help insulate your home. Therefore, as it becomes worn and damaged, you may notice higher heating and air conditioning bills as well as issues with paint and wall paper inside your home. If you notice this, you may want to begin to look outside for cracks and warping on your current siding.

    What to Do If Your Siding Has a Problem

    The first thing to remember is that nothing in a home is built to last forever. While the exterior of a home is meant to last quite a while, eventually, siding will need to be repaired or replaced. Therefore, if you notice and issue, do not panic.  Your home is not falling apart and there are solutions to the problem.

    Once you notice an issue, it is best to contact a trusted contractor to come our to your home and inspect the siding and roofing of your home. If the damage is isolated to a particular spot due to the direction your home faces or strong weather damage, you may only need to replace or repair one section of the home. However, if it is due to normal wear and tear, you will need to evaluate the level of damage to determine whether the siding needs to be repaired or replaced. Working with a trusted contractor will give you peace of mind that you will make the right decision for your home and its siding needs.

    Once you have determined the scope of the project, your contractors properly remove and dispose of the original siding before adding new siding to the home. This is a crucial part of the job, as if it is done incorrectly, the new siding can have issues sooner rather than later.
