After decades of use, roofs can lose their shingles and gutters can sag. For these parts of your home, it’s usually easy to know when you need a replacement. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for siding. Siding replacements are rarely at the top of a homeowners’ list of dream home improvement projects. In most cases, people will only consider replacing their siding if there are conspicuous problems in them.
This year, it may be time to give your siding the attention it deserves. Swapping out your old boards for a brand-new set is not just for aesthetics. New siding systems are usually more weather-resistant and energy-efficient than their older counterparts so you’re also improving the protection and performance of your home. Let our experts at V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding, Inc. show you the most common signs you need to replace your siding.
Increasing Energy Bills
You’ve gotten new shingles, your windows and doors have been upgraded, and yet your energy bills seem to slowly increase every season. The reason may be your siding. If you notice a gradual increasing trend in your bills, your old siding may already be due for a replacement. Contact your local siding contractor for a complete inspection to make sure that your energy woes are really rooted in poorly performing siding.
Older siding requires more frequent repairs, maintenance, and painting. After a certain point, the cost of these repairs can add up. If you know that your siding is nearing the end of its life span, it may be more practical to simply replace it entirely than to shell out money every time you notice warping, rotting, or any visible signs of a problem.
A Brand-New Look
Lastly, if you’re looking to improve your curb appeal, why not consider swapping out your old siding for some shiny new vinyl siding. Aesthetic home improvements are just as valid as practical reasons so you don’t always have to wait for problems to occur to give your home a fresh new look.
