Your siding is exposed to various elements on a daily basis. And occasionally, it may have to withstand extreme weather events. That said, it can be helpful to know the usual reasons behind some siding problems. By having an idea on how such things could affect your siding, you can be more proactive in making sure your siding remains in good condition.
Here are some common causes of siding problems.
Siding materials are designed to keep moisture out of your home. But sometimes, siding can be damaged without your knowledge or without showing any obvious signs at first. When signs of moisture damage do occur, you’ll likely see warping and buckling. Make sure to call your trusted siding contractor to address the issue.
Siding contractors should follow the correct installation techniques to ensure the siding’s quality and durability. Poor installation usually results in siding problems, which could eventually cause the material to have a shorter lifespan. When hiring a contractor for your project, be thorough in checking their background and qualifications. Make sure they are capable of installing siding properly.
Poor Maintenance Habits
Several types of siding materials are described as low-maintenance, but this does not mean they can stand for years without regular upkeep. Make sure to clean and inspect your siding regularly. An inspection once a year and after severe weather is ideal. And if you see signs of damage, call an expert to repair your siding ASAP.
