You know that feeling when you find an amazing new outfit and you finally get to wear it for the first time? That’s how it feels to put new siding on your house. And much like that new outfit, the siding is about more than just looks, it’s about comfort and security. But how do you know when it’s time to go shopping for a new “outfit” for your house?
Your Home Needs a Facelift
The exterior of your house and its curb appeal is the first thing people notice, and if it looks rough and outdated it leaves a bad impression. Perhaps the color is something that was popular when your home was first built. Or, maybe, the current siding is very faded and dingy, especially compared to the new siding all around it in the neighborhood. The odds are good that it has been a long time since you last put siding on your house, so the advancements that have been made might astound you. There are so many choices in color, look, and material now, that you are sure to find something to make your house look updated and beautiful.
The Siding is Damaged
If there’s damage to whatever is on your house now, this is a strong indication that it is time to replace it. Even if you already have siding on your house, it could be showing signs of age and wear by this point. The siding (or shingles, or whatever) that is there now has a really hard job to do. It protects your home from a constant onslaught of wind, rain, snow, sun, and wildlife. So if you’re seeing any cracking, warping, bubbling, or gaps in your existing siding, now is the time to find someone to replace it. If you’re noticing mold growth, this also might be a sign that you need to have someone inspect it to see if there’s a larger problem of moisture getting through.
Your Energy Bill is Skyrocketing
There are lots of reasons that your home energy bills may be going up: rising fuel costs, leaky windows, a poor roof, a failing HVAC, and yes, even bad siding. If your bills are getting out of hand, consider having your siding looked at, since gaps and cracks allow drafts in and heat out.
