Repairing vs. Replacing damaged siding
The siding that shields the outside of your home not only helps keep your home looking excellent, it aids to safeguard it from the elements. However, over time the siding might end up being damaged, needing to be repaired or changed. Whether you opt for siding repair or siding replacement relies largely on what kind of siding it is that you have, and what the level of damage is.
Vinyl siding is a nice looking alternative to wood products. It does not require painting or much upkeep past the occasional hosing off. However, it is fairly flimsy and fragile, so any sort of impact on the siding can result in a fissure. If this occurs, there truly isn’t any sort of means to repair the board; it needs to be replaced.
The bright side is that provided the rest of the vinyl siding remains in good shape, you can undertake siding replacement of the affected boards by disconnecting them from where they snap in, and nailing a brand-new board into place, while leaving the rest of the boards alone.
Cedar & wood
There are 2 kinds of problems that can accompany cedar shingles and real wood siding. The first is gouges that can be marked into the wood by a pressure cleaner, hail stones, and other kinds of force. The second is rot brought on by excessive moisture damages over the years. If your siding has been gouged, it can be repaired either by sanding it down and painting or staining it, or by filling up much deeper gashes with outdoor grade spackling, then priming and painting.
If the siding has started to rot, the rotting rows need to be upgraded. It is not essential to change all the siding if only a few rows are rotting, except if you plan to try putting up a brand-new material.
If you have much older siding that appears to be slate, this is most likely asbestos siding. The bright side is that this siding stands up well. The problem is that you can not disturb it without having trained experts at your side to encapsulate and remove it for you. If it is not falling apart, government standards suggest leaving it alone or painting it. If it is falling apart, it needs to be changed by a professional roofer.
Like vinyl siding if there are cracks or broken pieces, the simplest thing to do is to change only the damaged parts of aluminum siding. However if you have small holes in the siding, this may be repaired with a touch of color-matched exterior-grade caulk. Smooth it on to fill up the openings and repair the siding.
The vast bulk of the time siding may be repaired instead of upgraded. In the events where siding replacement is essential, frequently only the affected boards need to be changed, and not the whole home. Solely major structural concerns or progressive rot that has spread throughout the home’s outside will call for the replacement of the whole siding. Typically, change your home siding when you’re ready for a change and make siding repairs in a prompt method to handle other minor problems.
