Your home’s siding is one of the most important parts of its exterior as it protects it from the natural elements. With proper care and maintenance, your siding should be able to keep your home looking great for years to come. However, its lifespan still depends on what it goes through, so it’s not uncommon for some to deteriorate faster than others.
Your siding is designed and built to keep moisture out. It can sometimes be damaged in ways you can’t even see, which makes moisture a serious issue, regardless of what type of siding you have on your home. The telltale signs of moisture affecting your siding and your home is when you see warping and buckling.
While some professional siding contractors have the industry experience necessary to install siding, others are simply not as competent in doing the job efficiently, and, if it’s not done correctly, it can take a toll in its lifespan. Make sure to research the available contractors in your area, and don’t hesitate to ask your friends, family and neighbors on who they recommend.
While your siding is built to withstand some degree of weathering, that doesn’t mean it won’t get damaged over time by, let’s say, an occasional hailstorm. In fact, hail doesn’t have to be as big as a table tennis ball to ruin your siding as any debris that makes contact with your siding in high winds will make its mark. And, no matter how big or small they may be, the marks can become bigger, and damage will become worse over time. You’ll eventually be forced to pay a costly repair or replacement.
After a severe storm, be sure to call your trusted contractors, and schedule an inspection even if you don’t see any visible damage. They’ll know what to look for and will recommend the proper fixes whenever appropriate.
