When Is a Good Time to Replace Home Siding?
Home siding is an important element for keeping your home well-insulated. From searing summers to frigid winters, Connecticut can get some extreme weather and if you don't have solid siding, you will be looking at rising energy bills. Whether you choose wood, cedar or vinyl siding there are some things you can do to ensure that your siding is solid.
The Vinyl Option – Right now vinyl siding is one of the most popular choices for new home siding. Affordable, durable and able to last, vinyl siding is a great choice for your home. At Peerless Contracting we install all kinds of vinyl siding and will consult with you on price, look and color to ensure you get the best materials and service possible. Vinyl siding is also maintenance free so you don't have to worry about expensive cleaning and repairs every five years.
Tour the House – As with your roof, an occasional spot check on the siding is a good idea. On a mild day take a walk around the entire perimeter of your home from the outside and look for cracks, chipped siding, warping and discoloration. Pay attention to the siding around windows, doors and awnings. If you notice a pattern of damage, contact a siding specialist who can assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.
Consider New Siding – No homeowner wants to thing about new when repairing can still get the job done. However, there comes a time with exterior siding when you need to concede that the time has come for new siding. When the panels are warped and extending from the home, water is leaking in through the walls and the color has faded into a different shade, it's time to budget for new siding installation.
