When was the last time you looked at the exterior of your home? We aren’t talking about a quick glance at it when you pull into the driveway. Instead, when was the last time you carefully examined your home’s siding? If you are like most homeowners, this is not something you often do. This is a problem since by the time you notice signs of obvious trouble, you need to replace your siding ASAP.
To avoid this stressful situation, we would like to provide you tips on how to tell when it’s time to call Integrity for a free bid for new siding on your Kansas City home.
The problem with dry rot is that it can be tricky to find. Sometimes the top layer of your siding remains intact, so you may not know there is a problem until you press against the siding or trim of your home.
Warped siding is easier to see than dry rot, and it is undoubtedly an indicator that it may be time to replace your siding.
Mildew, Fungus, and Mold
Do you see signs of mildew, fungus, or mold, especially on your siding seams? This may be a sign that water is passing through, and you know what kind of problems mold can cause!
High Heating and Cooling Bills
You know that low-quality windows can cause your heating and cooling bills to increase, but some homeowners forget how important it is to have high-quality siding to lower your monthly costs.
One of the most significant indicators of whether it is time to replace the siding of your home is its age. Nothing lasts forever, so if you see (and feel) signs of trouble, it may be past time to replace it.
