One of the most common choices for siding for a home is vinyl siding. It’s no surprise that it is popular given the low maintenance requirements and durability of panels. Some homeowners can go 20 plus years before having an issue with their siding. However, overtime even the best of products begin to weaken or get damaged and need to be replaced. Keeping up with your vinyl siding is important when maintaining your home’s appearance and value.
The south comes with very hot and humid summers, and on occasion very cold winters. This is why improving our home efficiency is important to us. One of the best ways to do this is by replacing bad vinyl siding on your home. If your home’s siding has damage such as cracks or warps in it. This could allow warm or cold air into your home. If this happens you will find your air conditioning unit running more frequently to keep up with the temperature inside your home. By replacing your siding, you are making your home more energy efficient and have a higher chance of decreasing your energy bill.
Air isn’t the only issue that can get under your vinyl and cause damage to your home. In fact a very popular reason for siding issues in the south is water damage. By not replacing vinyl with warps, cracks or other open damage you risk water leaking into your home. This can cause damage to your main structure and allow for mold and mildew to start to grow. When you replace your home’s vinyl it will be sturdy and water resistant.
