Signs Your Siding Needs Some Help
Since siding tends to be an unsung hero of the home, you might not know what to look for as indicators of problems with your siding. Maybe it’s just kind of chipped and a bit faded. You’re probably okay leaving it alone for now if you’re not ready to take the next step. However, there are some more serious things to look out for:
Broken or Damaged Siding
This is an easy one to take note of. It’s not only ugly, but it leaves the home vulnerable to internal and external damages if left untreated.
Home siding is, oftentimes, made up of porous materials that can easily host mold and mildew. It’s the perfect environment for mold spores to fester. If your siding has mold or mildew, the entire area needs to be removed.
Rot appears when broken siding is left unrepaired. If you find rot, the entire piece must be removed to ensure it is all taken care of.
Lowered Home Insulation
Damaged siding can allow air to travel in and out of the house, which results in higher heating and cooling costs. If you’ve noticed an uptick in your bills, take a look at your siding to be sure it’s not the culprit.

The Benefits of Good Siding
When your home is equipped with quality siding, the top benefit comes in the form of money saved on heating and cooling costs. Look at siding as a heavy coat for your home. Trapping the warmth and cold when necessary while keeping everything else out. High quality siding will keep your home protected from the elements while keeping your wallet a little heavier over the years.
