Key Siding Points:
Many homeowners choose to fix “minor” repairs rather than do a full replacement in an effort to save money in this declining economy. Some of the time, this is a great choice. However, it’s an unfortunate fact that much of the time these “minor” issues seem to snowball into a project that never seems to end because the truth is that the siding is past its lifespan. If you have spent more than you expected in repairs and think you may end up paying even more, now is a great time to get a price on a full replacement.
Finding water inside your home can be a scary feeling. Until it is properly inspected, you do not know how long water has been getting in and if you have any dry-rot within the structure. Unfortunately, more often than not, the problem has existed long before you could actually see the water and at that point the siding will need replacement. Living within rotten and/or mold-covered wood is a health concern, especially for children or those with a respiratory illness. The sooner you replace siding in this case, the better. Moisture spreads quickly, and the more time that goes by means more underlayment that you’ll likely need to replace.
Selling a home can be a difficult task, especially when there are aspects of your home that prevent you from selling it at its true worth. Replacing siding can eliminate many common issues that a realtor or inspector find and use to negotiate a lower price or even turn down the opportunity altogether. The most important thing you can do in this case is to find out an exact cost of replacing the siding. In most cases, replacing the siding will more than pay for itself in the recovery of value. A low maintenance exterior makes for a great selling point.
