Siding protects the home from damaging weather elements, prevents cold weather from entering the home and provides the home with customizable aesthetic appeal. In addition to improving the home’s energy efficiency, well kept and visually appealing siding can add additional value to homes, increasing its desirability on the market. Other than wanting to replace siding for aesthetic reasons, siding lasts a considerable amount of time and requires minimal amounts of repair.
Although the longevity of siding is quite high, repairs and replacements are common as rain, hail, snow and wind begin to take a toll on the integrity of the siding. Damages caused by the weather can result in water leaks, water damage and dry rot to the foundation of the home. Our experienced siding contractors evaluate the condition of the home’s siding to determine whether repairs or replacement is required.
When siding becomes damaged, the foundation of the home is left vulnerable to pests and elemental weather damages. This exposure can lead to costly damages to the exterior as well as the interior of the home. Performing frequent maintenance and repairs on a home’s siding can significantly increase the longevity of the siding and decrease the need for a full siding replacement.
The professional siding replacement contractors at Monumental Contractors perform extensive siding evaluations, assessing the external conditions of the siding as well as the internal conditions of the home to evaluate whether or not damages exist and the level of repairs needed.
How To Tell A Home Needs Siding Repair
The following are common ways to tell when a home requires siding repair services.
- Broken or chipped siding
- Paint is discolored
- Paint is peeling
- Cracks or splits running parallel
- Cracks or splits forming half-circles
Siding replacement services are ideal for siding which is either beyond repair or when improving the home’s aesthetic appeal and value. Homes located in regions that experience strong winds, consistent rainfall or heavy snowstorms are subjected to pest and water damages caused by these environmental elements. Avoiding the replacement of damaged siding can result in very costly foundational repairs.
For homeowners looking to sell their home, a siding replacement is a cost-effective way to improve the aesthetics of the home and its value on the market. Replacing siding to match the home’s architecture and style can attract buyers who may not have considered viewing the home previously. New siding can also improve the energy efficiency of the home, thus increasing the value and appeal to potential homebuyers.
