Throughout the years, the exterior of your home can experience a variety of wear and tear. As a homeowner, it’s important to recognize when your home is in need of updating. One of the largest parts of your home’s exterior is the siding. Maintaining your home’s siding can ensure your home remains secure and energy-efficient. Here are several signs you should consider contacting a professional home exterior company to replace your house’s siding.
Cracks | If you haven’t inspected your house’s siding in a while, take a moment to walk around your home and keep an eye out for cracks in the siding. Cracks can lead to greater problems for your home down the road. From water damage to air leaks, cracked siding typically indicates a repair is in order. If you notice cracks in your home’s siding, contact Paskar Construction. Our team of experienced contractors can professionally and efficiently install new siding on your home.
Rot | Another indication your siding is in need of replacement are signs of rotting material. When your siding is rotting, it can lead to holes and damage to the surface underneath the siding. Keep an eye out for rotting siding and consider getting the area replaced.
Bubbles | When you notice bubbles forming on your siding, call a professional exterior siding company such as Paskar Construction. Bubbles and blisters in your siding typically indicate water damage beneath the surface. Because siding’s purpose is to keep outside forces such as water away from your home, it is best to get your siding replaced as soon as possible when you notice bubbles and blisters.
Mold And Mildew | Mold and mildew on the side of your home indicate an excess of moisture has accessed beneath your siding’s surface. Not only is this growth unsightly on your home, but it could also mean your home is experiencing further damage. You should look into the growth to determine the underlying cause.
High Energy Bills | If you’ve noticed your home is cooler in the winter than it should be, or if you’ve noticed your energy bills have been getting higher than usual, it may be time to replace your siding. Siding should restrict air leaks and keep your home insulated all year long. If your energy bill is showing your HVAC system is working harder than you would like, it could mean your siding has experienced excess wear.
