5 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Siding
You have probably noticed the warped siding on the side of your house for months now but in the grand scheme of your never ending to-do list, fixing your siding doesn’t always hit the top spot. There are many home improvement projects that you could tackle, but replacing your siding is one that can be done simply and affordably with help from The Window Source of West Texas. But is it truly time to replace your siding and upgrade to something more efficient? Here are a few signs that it’s well beyond time to replace the siding on your home.Signs of mold or fungus
You may think you can just remove that green staining with a good pressure washing, but mold is something that will continue to appear due to moisture seeping in. This is a problem that you will want to address quickly with a more durable siding. Our Prodigy® Insulated Siding is a great option as the premium vinyl surface repels downpours while the insulating layer breathes freely to keep your home comfortable and inviting reducing the risk of mold.
If you’re not at the beach, you shouldn’t be seeing waves especially on your home. The warping in your siding is a problem that cannot be fixed with our replacing either all or part of your siding. Underneath those warped parts of your siding you may want to see if the wood is rotting. Warped siding can also greatly reduce the curb appeal of your home and definitely requires an fix!
Constantly repainting your home?
If you have spent a weekend every two months repainting spots on your home, it might be time to admit to yourself that all this manual labor isn’t worth it. Give us a call and we can come out to help you choose the perfect kind of siding for your home (you know, the kind that keeps you off the painting ladder every other month ;))
Higher energy bills
If you can rule out that it’s not your roof or your windows responsible for the higher energy bills each month it’s time to look to your siding. Older siding could be leaking cold/warm air in and out of your home making those energy bills rise.
Eek! A bug!
A lot of times when we notice unwelcome critters scurrying through the home, we immediately hit the ground and look for holes or cracks in the weather stripping around the door. Sometimes, the siding outside of your home is far to old to be protecting you like it should. Additionally, rotting wood beneath under-performing siding will attracts bugs! Another reason to consider replacing your siding.
