The Benefits of High-Quality Siding
Strong siding provides great benefits in the amount of money that it saves you in the long-run. It’s essentially an extra layer of insulation, providing the initial barrier between your property and what lies inside of it. This helps reduce heating and cooling costs and gives you a comfortable space that you know is safe.
Brand new siding installation is one of the simplest, most effective ways to completely transform the outside of your home. It can make even the most haggard, sad home look like a million bucks, making you the envy of the entire neighborhood.
Warning Signs of Bad Siding
We would never try to frighten you into purchasing new siding, but we do want you to be aware of what to look for in your current siding to determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced sooner rather than later. If it’s a case of the siding simply looking a bit worn, you would probably be okay leaving for the time being– unless, of course, you’d like to replace it for aesthetics. However, there are some warning signs that you do need repairs or replacement:
This one is pretty simple to detect right off the bat. Breakage is not only unattractive, it can also leave the home susceptible to infestations, water damage, mold/mildew, as well as many other unfortunate things.
Mold isn’t required for rot to happen, but you must ensure that the siding remains completely solid and intact. If the overall integrity of the siding is compromised, it must be replaced.
Mold or Mildew
Unless your siding is constructed from brick or concrete, you are, most likely, dealing with porous materials that make it easy for mold spores to germinate. This creates a need for that entire area to be replaced.
Lowered temperature insulation
If you’ve started noticing that your property is absorbing excessive heat in the summer or gets very cold during the Michigan winters, the insulation may be letting air in through weaknesses in the siding.
