Repairing vs. Replacing harmed siding

The siding that blankets the exterior of your home not just helps keep your home looking good, it aids to secure it from the weather conditions. Unfortunately, with time the siding may become damaged, needing to be repaired or changed out. Whether or not you go with siding repair or siding replacement depends largely on what type of siding it is that you have, and what the degree of damage is.

Vinyl siding is a good looking option to wood items. It does not require painting or much upkeep past the periodic hosing off. Unfortunately, it is relatively flimsy and fragile, so any kind of impact on the siding can leave behind a crack. If this happens, there truly isn’t any method to repair the board; it needs to be switched out.

The good news is that provided the remainder of the vinyl siding remains in good condition, 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 remainder of the boards alone.

Cedar & wood
There are 2 kinds of issues that can occur with cedar shingles and wooden siding. The very first is gashes that can be marked within the wood by a pressure washer, hail stones, and other kinds of impact. The 2nd is rot brought on by excessive moisture damage over the years. If your siding has been gashed, it can be repaired either by sanding it down and painting or staining it, or by filling much deeper cuts with outdoor grade spackling, then priming and painting.

If the siding has begun to rot, the decaying rows need to be replaced. It is not essential to replace all the siding if just a few rows are decaying, unless you aim to attempt installing a brand-new product.

Slate asbestos
If you have older siding that resembles slate, this is likely asbestos siding. The good news is that this exterior siding holds up very well. The bad news is that you can not disturb it without having qualified specialists on hand to encapsulate and remove it for you. If it is not crumbling, government standards advise leaving it alone or painting it. If it is deteriorating, it must be replaced by a professional roofing contractor.

Like vinyl siding if there are fractures or broken pieces, the most convenient thing to do is to replace just the damaged parts of aluminum siding. However if you have small gashes 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 bottom line
The vast bulk of the time siding may be repaired rather than replaced. In the cases where siding replacement is essential, often just the affected boards need to be replaced, and not the entire home. Only major structural issues or progressive rot that has spread throughout the home’s exterior will call for the replacement of the entire siding. Generally, replace your home siding when you’re up for a change and make siding repairs in a timely way to manage other minor issues.
