4 Signs That It's Time to Call Your Columbus Siding Contractor

Hiring a professional siding contractor to replace your siding can dramatically increase the value of your home. On the other hand, failing to call a contractor when siding replacement is needed can eventually lead to serious damage to your Columbus home or business. But how do you know when it's time to replace your siding? The following signs should raise red flags and send you in search of a contractor to take care of your siding replacement.

  1. Visual Signs of Deterioration- Your siding will eventually start to deteriorate. And sometimes it's pretty obvious. Maybe your siding is really old. Maybe the materials used were cheap or the guy who did the original job didn't perform quality work. Whatever the case may be, you may begin to see exposed edges on your siding. The paint begins to flake and chip-or maybe pieces of the actual siding are flaking off. Some of those edges may even be missing chunks of material. Other visible signs of deterioration include soft spots coupled with discoloration. If you see any of these indicators, your siding is in serious trouble. Pick up the phone and call a Columbus siding contractor.
  2. Swollen panels and bowed boards- When you look down the side of your home, you should see a nice flat surface. If you don't, you definitely have siding issues. Siding panels may swell, and boards may bow- all the result of too much exposure to moisture. And once moisture destroys your siding, guess what comes next? The inside of your walls. If you notice warped siding on the exterior of your home, contact a siding contractor immediately before your problem gets out of control. Otherwise, you're looking at bigger problems down the road.
  3. Peeling caulk- Clean caulk lines are an important part of a professionally completed siding replacement job. Over time, caulk inevitably begins to mildew and peel. Don't be fooled. Peeling caulk is not just a cosmetic issue. Sure it's not pretty, but allowing your caulk to peel will result in water intrusion. And water intrusion can lead to larger problems, like that four-letter word, mold. So if you notice peeling caulk, have a siding contractor come take a look. They will let you know if you just need some recaulking, or if you need to replace the siding as well.
  4. Peeling paint- Painted siding lasts longer than unpainted siding, pure and simple. The paint acts as a protective coating, shielding your siding from moisture. If your paint begins to peel, your siding's protection is compromised. When you call a siding contractor, they can assess the situation and let you know if you just need a simple repainting or if your siding needs replacement. Whatever the need, they can take care of it for you.

If you notice any of the above signs, don't delay. Doing so puts your home at risk. And who wants to risk what is probably the largest investment they'll ever make? Save your home by calling a professional siding contractor, immediately.
