Signs You Need Your Siding Repaired

We at Expressway Roofing & Chimney have all your siding needs covered! Anything from a full installation to repair you can rest easy knowing that the job will be finished correctly and on time. Siding is a vital part of your home.


Some signs that your siding needs to be replaced are:

  • Discolored patches that are darker or lighter than surrounding wood, or have a white, yellow, or purplish hue
  • Texture changes where the wood appears spongy or cracked
  • Wood breaking apart or crumbling into sawdust
  • Faded spots in the siding
  • Signs of visible rot
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Cracks and caps in any of the siding, eaves, gutters or soffits
  • Warping, bubbles or blisters on the siding
  • When a lot of maintenance is needed
  • Mold, mildew or fungus is now evident


Mold, mildew and fungus derive from moisture accumulation in the siding. Mold growth affects your health. It releases toxic gases that cause breathing problems. Mold will damage your siding look and the home’s exterior appeal. With time, the mold will grow inside the house.

Opting for siding repair will cost you more money. This is because you’ll also have to repair other interior parts of your house.  New (or repaired) siding will keep you safe from mold threats. There will be a boost to your home’s curb appeal.


Why Are Siding Repairs Important?

Any cracks, gaps, or outright holes in your siding are more than just a cosmetic issue. They can let water into the interior of your wall, where it will fester and cause moisture damage issues such as rot, mold, and mildew. This kind of damage not only threatens the structural integrity of the house, it can actually be hazardous to your health and water damage mitigation is very frustrating and costly. Gaps also let in pests such as rats and termites, which can have similar negative effects on the well-being of both your house and your family.


This is something that we could go on and on about. However, the biggest items that we will touch on is the fact that siding protects the interior of your home from the exterior elements. Namely water, which once inside your home will cause issues and costly repairs. Siding repairs do offer the homeowner the ability to return some of the curb appeal and flair to their home.


Are your heating and cooling costs going up even though your usage hasn’t changed? If you notice cool drafts near walls and windows, or coming from light switches and electrical sockets, damage to your siding could be the culprit that’s driving up your energy bill. A professional handyman can help you determine the exact problem, but if it’s related to your cladding, replacing it with energy-efficient, insulated vinyl siding can save you a lot of money in the long run.
