When Should I Replace My Siding?

Your siding is your home’s first line of defence against nature’s whims. By warding off water and snow and protecting your home from extreme heat and cold, your siding is what makes your home safe for you and your family. 

However, your siding does not last indefinitely; for it to continue to do its job, it will have to be replaced at some point. Signs that suggest you need a new siding include damage, moisture, and more expensive utility bills.

6 Signs Your Siding Needs Replacing 

Making sure that your home’s siding is up to snuff is a fundamental aspect of home maintenance. Quality siding protects your home from water infiltration, keeps you warm during the winter and cool during summer, and improves your home’s energy efficiency. Plus, siding is an element that can define and contribute to the aesthetics of your home. 

Here are 6 signs that your siding may need to be replaced: 

  1. It is split or loose: Strong winds can sometimes damage or dislodge your siding. Fixing a split or loose board is often a matter of replacing it, but severe storms can sometimes ruin your siding completely. 
  2. It is rotting: Rotting siding is not always obvious. The surface may look unblemished while the inside may have been decaying for a long time. Test rot by inserting a screwdriver or a pry bar under the boards and poke into the material underneath. A spongy sensation is indicative of rot. 
  3. It has holes: Small holes on the siding likely denote an ant or termite infestation. These small holes can allow water to infiltrate in the event of a storm, which may cause further harm to your siding as well as damage to your home. 
  4. There is moisture: If you notice that fungus, mold, algae, or mildew is growing on your siding, it means that moisture is being trapped inside. Breathing in fungal spores can lead to allergic reactions as well as other health complications. 
  5. It is not protecting you from water: Good siding is supposed to keep the elements out—not bring them in. Water stains on your interior walls indicate that your siding has stopped doing its job. 
  6. Your bills have increased: Gas and electricity bills that have inexplicably increased may be a sign of a failing siding. That could be your home working harder to compensate for your siding’s inability to insulate and maintain ambient temperature.  

Your home’s siding is critical to its structural integrity. Without it, you and your home will be at the mercy of inclement weather. Replace your siding on a timely basis to prevent further damage to your home.

FAQs

How long does siding last?
This depends on the type of siding you are using. Vinyl siding can last anywhere between 20 to 40 years, whereas Hardie Board siding can endure for 25 years. 

Is there a particular time of the year to replace my siding? 
The ideal time to install a new siding is in the fall. Extreme heat or cold can affect the quality of the installation, and spring showers can create moisture problems. 

Will insurance cover my siding repair or replacement? 
Your insurance company is likely to cover the cost if your siding was damaged by natural events. However, it may not do so if your siding needs replacement due to normal wear and tear.
