The Best Siding Repair and Replacement in Delaware
A home’s siding is something that we don’t often think about. Of course, we see it everyday, but we rarely take a close look at it and gauge its health. Believe it or not, we actually need to be paying more attention to our siding than this. Not only does its overall appearance dramatically impact your curb appeal, siding also keeps your home protected from mold and rot. Because of this, it’s important to take care of your siding just as you would your walls inside your house.
The siding replacement and repair experts at Install Solutions are here to help you assess your home’s exterior and give you an estimate based on your goals, vision and budget to be sure your siding is perfect.
The Right Siding Materials
When it comes to home siding, there are a variety of options out there. Every one comes with its own pros and cons, but we’re here to guide you on what is the best fit for your home, specifically. Some of the potential materials for your siding include aluminum, cement, vinyl, hardwood, and brick. Ultimately, the choice is yours to make; we’re just here to help.
Signs of Bad Siding
We’re not here to scare you into replacing your siding; we just want you to know what to look for to determine if you may need some professional assistance. If your siding simply looks a little old and worn, you should be fine leaving it–unless, of course, you want a new look! Otherwise, here are some warning signs of problems:
- Broken Siding – This is a pretty obvious one to catch. However, not only is breakage ugly, but it also leaves your home vulnerable to mold, mildew, infestations and water damage.
- Mold and Mildew – Unless your siding is made of brick or concrete, it’s most likely a porous material ripe for mold spores to germinate and spread. If you see an area of mold or mildew, the entire area needs to be replaced to ensure it’s all removed.
- Rot – Spotting rot in your siding is never good, because it indicates weak areas. When this occurs, the entire surrounding area needs to be replaced to ensure the rot doesn’t spread.
- Decreased Insulation – If you’ve noticed that your home is allowing excessive heat or cold air in, your insulation may be failing. Quality siding is like a winter coat on your home, trapping good air inside and keeping the bad out. Keep an eye out for higher than usual electric bills.
The Benefits of Solid Siding
Money saved is a big factor in why good siding matters. By providing the barrier between the home and the weather, your heating and cooling costs stay lower and keep your home more comfortable.
Not only do your bills lower, but quality siding by Install Solutions is one of the easiest ways to boost your curb appeal and property value. This means that when it comes time to sell the home, you’ll reap the financial benefits of your new siding.
