Whether it’s by age or extreme weather, damage to your siding should be dealt with quickly. The siding, after all, is not only an essential design element, but also a barrier that keeps your home safe and intact. But how exactly do you go about fixing your damaged home exterior? Should you go for repairs, or is replacement the better idea?
When Siding Repair Makes Sense
Minor cosmetic damage to your siding isn’t enough to prompt a replacement. That’s why you should consider repair work first. For instance, any small section of siding that has been loosened or torn by high wind speeds can be easily replaced. Those scratches can be covered, dents and holes can be filled, and signs of mold or mildew can be removed with cleaning. These are easy and cost-effective ways to extend the life of your siding. In fact, you won’t have to replace it unless it has sustained extensive structural damage.
When Siding Replacement Is the Better Idea
If your siding is already old or failing, or has suffered tremendous damage, then you should start planning your replacement project. Holes, cracks or dents that cover a significant portion of your siding can make it easy for water – and insects – to infiltrate your home. Another serious warning sign to look for is warp and rot, which are particularly common in cedar siding. Aside from being unsightly, they can also weaken the structural integrity of your home – not to mention expose you to a number of health risks.
