Vinyl siding remains a popular option for homeowners due to its durability and a variety of color options. Choosing to use vinyl siding is also cost-effective, as it can last anywhere between 20 to 40 years before you need to consider a replacement. Vinyl siding is low maintenance compared to other options, which can save you a lot of time. Keeping a few things in mind can help you determine if you need to contact a siding installation company to replace vinyl nearing the end of its lifespan.
Here are a few of the most common signs that it’s time to replace your vinyl siding.
Old vinyl siding can eventually fade over time due to the sun and outside elements. A bright white color may now appear dull, or it may be covered in difficult to remove stains. Older vinyl siding in need of replacement can decrease the curb appeal of your home. The easiest way to avoid this scenario is to replace it with brand new vinyl siding to give your home a fresh appearance.
Mold and Mildew
Moisture that gets past your vinyl siding can cause a lot of problems. Mold growth can create structural issues while also causing health concerns for you and your family members. Getting your vinyl siding replaced and making sure it’s properly installed is essential in preventing excess moisture from causing mildew and mold problems for your home.
Vinyl siding can often last for many decades before you need to make a replacement. However, poor installation can significantly reduce the lifespan of vinyl siding. For example, siding may eventually become damaged if it’s nailed too tight or at an angle. Siding needs a small amount of room to expand due to ever-changing temperatures, or it can warp or buckle. Using a trusted contractor for siding installation is always important to ensure the job is done right.
