Damaged Siding: Repair vs. Replacement

Your siding protects your home from harsh weather, insulates your living spaces and contributes to curb appeal. Therefore, when it comes to damaged siding, prompt repair or replacement is crucial. In this post, we share tips on how to determine the best solution for your damaged siding and why you should hire a professional to do the job.

Evaluating the Extent of the Damage

Siding damage can occur for various reasons, such as harsh weather conditions, water infiltration or even time. Telltale signs of damage include cracks, holes, warping and fading. However, untrained eyes may not see the full extent of the damage. It’s best to hire a siding contractor to evaluate the damage and its impact on your home.

Repairing Siding

Siding repair is typically a more cost-effective option, especially if the damage is minimal or localized. For instance, repair work should suffice if only a few panels are affected. 

Replacing Siding

Siding replacement might be the better choice in other circumstances — for instance, when the siding has suffered from extensive damage, is ner the end of its expected lifespan, or has persistent issues like mold or rot. Additionally, replacing your siding may be the ideal choice if you want to enhance the curb appeal of your home.

Choosing Between Repair and Replacement

Deciding between repair and replacement can be challenging, but considering the extent and type of damage, the age of your siding, and your budget can help. When deciding on your damaged siding, it’s better to seek a professional’s advice. An expert can help you make a decision based on the condition of your siding and your needs.
