Now that we are hopefully heading towards warmer days, it might be a good idea to take a close look at your home’s exterior and determine whether you need to do some upgrading to your home’s defense system, for the purpose of this article, our focus is your home’s siding.
Some factors to look for are sagging, cracking, blistering, buckling, dents, fading, missing pieces, evidence of insect infestation, rot and water stains.
Even though siding is outside your home, it has a direct effect on controlling your home’s interior temperature, as well as protecting you from the elements. As siding wears out, often the cost of maintenance can exceed that of replacement.
