When Do I Need To Replace My Home’s Siding?
Do you know the age of your home’s siding? Many people have no clue and unless you are the first owner, or built your home, you most likely do not know the exact age. There are several things to check that may indicate you are in need of a new siding, both inside and outside of your home. Here are a few below.
The Obvious – Falling Or Missing Siding
When, or if your home is missing siding or it’s falling off at random times and you are constantly having to re-attach it, it may be time to call SJS Carpentry. If this has become a consistent issue for you and your Fargo home, do not wait. There are further issues that could arise from missing siding, possibly within the structure of your home.
Peeling, Chipping Or Excessive Wear
Are you noticing chipping, peeling or having to apply new paint in certain areas on a regular basis? Typically, most siding should last at least 10 years without issue. So, if you’re noticing excessive wear, double-check that your siding isn’t cracking or warping in certain areas. Chipped or faded siding are typically signs that it’s time to start calling around for siding estimates.
Insulation & Home Temperature
Has your bill been increasing each summer & the cost of electricity is staying the same? Aged siding can have an effect on how insulated your home remains, thus causing your A/C & heating to work harder than normal to maintain the same temperature.
