March 13, 2017
Maintaining your home’s curb appeal is essential to owning a home. With the right look, you can enhance your home’s value. Millions of homeowners choose siding as their exterior of choice because it’s easy to maintain. However, siding it’s a completely maintenance-free option. You have to maintain it for it to look it’s best year after year. If you notice any of the following signs, then it’s possible you need to replace your siding to enhance your curb appeal.
Your Utility Bills Are Increasing
At first blush, you may not connect the fact that increased utility bills mean your siding may need replacing. However, when your siding becomes dated, you’ll start having cracks and dents that allow your cool air to escape. When this happens, your heating and cooling system will turn on more often, causing your bill to increase.
Another sign your siding needs replacing is the fact that it’s warped. Have you ever went along the side of your home and noticed dips or bubbling along your panels? If you have, then your siding may have been compromised by moisture. Depending on the severity of the damage, you could replace the siding that’s affected, instead of all of your siding.
Siding that’s falling or loose means your siding was installed improperly. This happens a lot when contractors are in a hurry to get the job done. The easiest way to fix this problem is to replace your siding. By replacing it, you ensure that you remove all the siding that was inappropriately installed and you start anew.
Siding and water aren't a good mixture. If water gets between the siding and the structure of your home, then it’s the perfect breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and fungus. You’ll see the effects of bacteria growth along your exteriors if this happens. Your siding will have mold and fungus sticking to it, which takes away from the overall look of your home.
