While your siding is designed to be durable and long-lasting, it’s still not exempt from damage. And when your siding does sustain damage, you’re left with two options: you either have it repaired or replaced. But when does one solution make more sense than the other? A premier new construction expert, Thompson Roofing and Construction, shares what you need to know.
When You Should Choose Repairs
Just because your siding has suffered a bit of damage from inclement weather doesn’t mean you have to get a full replacement. In fact, it may only take some prompt repair work, which offers a simple and more cost-effective way to bring your siding back to its former condition and extend its service life. Repairs are a feasible solution if your siding only has these issues:
- Minor to moderate mold and mildew
- Small chips, cracks and holes
- Loose panels
- Slight denting
When You Should Choose a Replacement
Investing in repairs when they clearly aren’t working any more is a waste of your time and money. If you need a better and more permanent solution to siding damage, all that’s left is go for a complete replacement. This solution allows you to save more money in the long run because it prevents your damaged siding from leaving your home vulnerable to weather exposure and structural issues. What’s more, a siding replacement can make a notable difference to your home’s curb appeal, and ensure it stays thermally comfortable and energy-efficient year-round.
You know your home needs a siding replacement if you see these problems:
- Bubbles in the siding
- Visible and extensive dry rot
- Fading and peeling
- Large cracks, holes and chips
- Missing siding panels
- Noticeable dents
