Top 5 Tell-Tale Signs That You Need to Replace Your Home’s Siding

Fixing the siding is usually not a top priority to some homeowners because they think of it as more cosmetic than structural. The truth of the matter is that siding on your Sterling Heights home plays a vital role in protecting the structure from the elements, keeping your home at a controlled temperature, and much more. In this article, we go over the top tell-tale signs that it needs to be replaced.

  1. It’s Starting to Warp and Rot


Take some time to do some visual inspections around your home. Try to lift the pieces up and see if you can see the underneath chipping away. If it seems like they are starting to warp, crack, or chip away, then it’s time to initiate the replacement process.

  1. You Tend To keep The Heat or Air Conditioner on More Often

If you notice that the heating or cooling bill is going up when compared to recent years, you may want to see if there is anything wrong with your siding. Having cracks, leaks, or breaks in this material will cause temperature-controlled air from the inside of your home to leak out at a fast rate.

  1. Parts That Do Not Line Up

Visually inspect the outside of your home to make sure all of the siding lines up nicely. If the task was done by a professional in Sterling Heights, this should not be a problem. Sometimes non-professionals will try to repair or install it themselves. When that is the case, there may be pieces that don’t line up and aren’t installed correctly.

  1. Peeling Paint on The Inside or Outside of Your Home.

Check the exterior and interior of your home to see if there are any signs of peeling or cracking paint. It can be very problematic if the paint seems to be peeling away from the walls. This can be caused by an exterior finish that is poorly installed. This can wreak havoc on interior walls and can allow moisture to build up causing mildew. 

  1. When the Exterior of the House Looks Faded

When the color begins to fade dramatically, it’s time to get it looked at. Fading is a sign that the exterior finish is starting to reach its life expectancy. Although there may not be any other signs of damage or wear, fading is a good indication that the product will start to break down and that it is time to replaced.
