Warning Signs You May Need New Siding

If you are starting to plan and save for home improvement projects to tackle in 2020, be sure you are taking the time to inspect the exterior of your home. While it can seem less than ideal to put on your winter coat and boots to walk around the exterior of your home, you can find potential signs that could mean your next project is siding replacement. 

Here are a few things to look for as you determine if new siding is on your 2020 to-do list.

Faded or Discolored Siding

If your siding is looking faded or if there are discolored sections, it could be time for a replacement. Discoloration can come from mold or algae, which means even a springtime power wash will not take care of the problem. While fading can happen due to sunshine or other weather conditions, it can be a sign of age as well, meaning replacement should happen sooner than later.

Signs of Animals

If you see scratch marks, gnawing marks, or other evidence of animal activity, your siding needs to be replaced. Squirrels, raccoons, birds and other creatures can cause serious damage to your siding, decreasing its efficiency.

Missing or Damaged Pieces

The easiest way to determine if you need to replace your siding is to see if any pieces are visibly damaged or completely missing. If you have missing or damaged pieces, you should work with an experienced contractor as soon as possible to avoid any other damage this winter season.

Poor Curb Appeal

Finally, you may want to replace your house’s siding simply because it is outdated or no longer suits your personal style. Your siding is an integral part of your home’s curb appeal and your property value can increase once you replace your old siding with new siding.
