How To Avoid Siding Problems

The side of a brown home with white windows.

As a homeowner, it’s important to be diligent with home maintenance. However, many people overlook the importance of maintaining their siding and could run into problems as a result.

While many siding manufacturers claim their products don’t require any maintenance, the best siding contractors still suggest performing routine maintenance and inspections. Here are some common siding problems you may face as a homeowner and how to avoid them.

Get Rid of Pests

Pests can be very destructive if left untreated. Bees, bugs, termites, and even woodpeckers are attracted to wood siding. As soon as you see signs of these pests, take action right away to let them know they aren’t welcome.

It’s also valuable to treat the perimeter of your home with insecticides regularly to prevent future infestations. Otherwise, you might need more expensive home siding replacement if pests get too comfortable.

Maintain Your Siding Regularly

Even new home siding needs maintenance, particularly after severe weather events. You might not see any noticeable damage at first, but minor issues compound over the years and can lead to larger problems later.

When siding contractors evaluate your siding once a year or following a severe weather event, they can identify minor issues that should be addressed. You can also periodically look for exposed nails, cracked sealant, and other issues you can easily fix yourself.

Prevent Moisture

Moisture is one of the most damaging things to siding. While the main purpose of siding is to keep moisture out, cracks and other damage can let moisture in where it’s not supposed to be.

If your siding is buckling or warping, it’s a sign of potential moisture damage, and you should call siding contractors right away to address the problem. The last thing you want is for the siding to rot and need a full home siding replacement.

Only Work With Experienced & Qualified Siding Contractors

Whether you’re installing new siding or getting your siding replaced, working with experienced and qualified siding contractors is the best way to prevent problems. They’ll ensure all cracks are sealed properly, so moisture doesn’t get in.

If your siding is several years old, working with the best siding contractors to inspect it periodically will save you a lot of headaches in the long run.
