Signs It's Time To Install New Siding

Monday, December 13th, 2021 by Steph Lauer


Increasing your home’s curb appeal can be achieved in numerous ways. One of these is through properly maintaining your siding’s overall look. If this part of your property’s exterior is well-kept, it can significantly affect the whole aesthetic and value of your residence. However, your house’s outer wall may still incur some damages over time as it also serves as protection from extreme weather, debris, and even pests.

So, how can you tell if your siding is weakening and is already due for a replacement? It is highly recommended to have professionals conduct an inspection of your house’s exterior. By hiring contractors to look at your home’s façade, you can avoid the risk of exposing your property to severe damages and costly repairs in the long run. Here are some of the signs that can help you determine if it’s time to install new siding:

Cracks, Chips, or Dents

Some of the most obvious signs that you need a siding replacement are cracks, chips, dents, and rotting on your property’s exterior. These visible damages may be incurred from debris and other object hitting your home’s façade during a big storm or if insects are boring holes in your walls. Make sure to have contractors inspect your house for any wear and tear after any extreme weather conditions.

Bubbles or Blisters

If you notice any bubbling or blisters forming on the walls inside your residence, it can be a sign that water has penetrated your siding. The outer façade should be able to prevent moisture from entering your house’s interior. Having bubbles on your wallpaper is an indication that the siding is no longer doing its job.

Sudden Spike on Your Electric Bills

One of the main purposes of your siding is to help your home retain heat and cold through proper insulation. If there is a sudden increase in your electric bill and you’ve already ruled out leaks and drafty windows, there’s a high chance that this is due to an old or damaged siding. When the façade’s worn out, moisture and air will enter your house and may overwork your HVAC systems.

Frequent Façade Painting and Maintenance

Most properties require a fresh coat every 10 years. If you find yourself needing to repaint your siding more than usual due to signs of wear and tear, then replacing it may be the best option for you. Paint chipping or peeling can also be an indication that there may be a problem beneath the surface. Consider installing new siding with long-lasting color and which require minimal maintenance.
