What Are the Common Culprits Behind Siding Problems?

It’s important to keep an eye out for signs of damage to your siding. The sooner siding damage is fixed, the lower the risk that it affects other parts of your home. Routine inspections are essential to detecting and fixing siding issues, but it wouldn’t hurt to learn more about the typical culprits behind common siding problems.

According to the roofing and siding contractors at Kroll Construction, these include:

What Are the Common Culprits Behind Siding Problems?

Wear and Tear

Your siding and your roof form part of your home’s first line of defense against rain and the elements. However, if your roof and siding are not routinely maintained or not suited to your area’s climate, your roof and siding can be easily worn down and damaged.

It’s important to choose a type of siding that can handle the local climate. Vinyl siding, for instance, easily sheds rainwater and doesn’t need a lot of upkeep, making it ideal for rainy climates. Fiber cement siding, on the other hand, can withstand strong winds and hail, making it a smart choice for homeowners in areas frequented by extreme weather events.

Here’s a tip: If you’re having trouble choosing a siding replacement, you can consult one of your local siding and roofing contractors. Since local contractors are more familiar with the local climate and building codes, they can make better recommendations.

Installation Errors and Moisture Damage 

Moisture damage and installation errors usually go hand in hand. Rainwater can easily infiltrate your interior if your siding wasn’t installed properly, although lack of maintenance might also be to blame. Remember: It’s important to vet a contractor before hiring them.

Here’s a vetting tip: Look for a siding contractor that has been in business for a long time. The more years they’ve spent in the industry, the more you can expect them to have the expertise necessary to taking care of all your siding concerns.
