Here are some things you should know about siding issues, and what you can do about them.

Siding Gets Dirty

It’s a fact that in our area we get some windy days. And if you throw precipitation into the mix, you’re basically coating your home with a thin layer of mud. This isn’t a great look for your home, and can make it look pretty dingy. Looks aside, that debris can erode the surface of the paint or vinyl, making it break down. A power washer treatment twice a year is a great way to counteract this. If you don’t have one yourself, hire a local company to help you out!

Siding Gets Damaged

There comes a time in the Pleasant Hill area when residents need hail damage repair, or even replacement. However, less harmful elements can cause damage, too. The UV rays from the sun can make it crack, fade the paint, and break down the fibers in the boards. Extreme heat and cold can make an impact as well. Some damage is a pretty easy fix with a few tools, some filler, and paint. However, when you’re looking at cracks and more obvious damage, replacement is more likely. Rain and the elements can sneak through the boards to cause mold and decay, which can not only cause moisture inside your home, but respiratory issues, too. And your home could become less energy-efficient when air is allowed to leak out, driving up your energy costs.

Siding Can Warp

Over time, your siding can begin to buckle or warp, pulling away from your home. We’ve already mentioned mold, mildew, and decay, as well as the cost of your energy bills. Warped boards usually need to be replaced, and sometimes it’s possible to do that for just a few here and there where needed. However, if they’re very old and you have quite a few in bad condition, give us a call and we can give you a free quote.

Siding Can Be Noisy

No, that’s not a symphony you’re hearing when the wind blows—that’s the sound of your siding begging to be replaced! When siding pulls away from your home, the wind can make it whistle. This is not only annoying, but can cause further damage to your home when the elements are allowed to come through.

When you need siding repair or replacement due to hail damage or other issues, give Legacy Roof Co. a call. We know how to thoroughly inspect your home to get to the root of the problem, and can tell you if you can get by with a simple repair or if total replacement is needed.
