Signs That Your Vinyl Siding Needs Repairs
Vinyl siding can provide ample protection for your home, but it is not full proof. Over time, storms and weather can cause some damage. If you notice the following signs of damage you should have your siding repaired or replaced:
- Cracked Siding: If you see gaps or cracks in your siding you will need to have that section replaced.
- Dents & Holes: If you notice dents or holes in your siding caused by high winds, you may need to have it replaced.
- Mold & Mildew: If you see mold or mildew around your home or other property, this is a sign that the waterproofing of your siding is not working.
- Warped Panels: If you notice warped shapes or bubbles in your siding it is also a sign that it needs to be replaced.
DIY Vinyl Siding Repairs
If the damage is small you might be able to handle the repairs yourself. A small hole in your siding can be quickly solved with some caulk. This is a quick and inexpensive repair job that just requires you to buy the matching color caulk of your siding. For cracked or warped sections you can clean the area, cut out the damaged section and add a patch of vinyl siding.
When To Replace Your Vinyl Siding
However, if the siding is severely damaged or a large area is damaged, it is better to have it replaced by a contractor. A contractor can remove the large section of damaged siding and replace it with all new siding. Another consideration many homeowners have is whether or not they should switch their siding material. Different materials like fiber cement provide different benefits.
