Much like roof replacement, replacing siding is not something homeowners do often. Because of that, it can be difficult to even know what questions to ask. We are asked many siding questions regularly and have put some of the most asked along with their answers together for you.

Why Can’t I Just Repair My Siding?

Although sometimes it is possible to repair siding, that is more the exception than the rule. When older vinyl siding breaks, it usually does so because it’s brittle. Unless you happen to have extra pieces, you likely won’t be able to even come close to matching the siding currently installed. Also, depending on the installation method, you may have to remove a large portion to fix the damaged area.

What is the Best Siding?

The best anything is subjective. Some argue that fiber cement siding is best because hail, pests and heat don’t damage it. However, it does need to be repainted every decade or so. Others see vinyl siding as the best siding because it never needs painting. You need to decide what you’re looking for in your new siding and your budget and make a decision based on your preferences.

What Are the Benefits of Replacing My Siding?

For many homeowners, new siding also comes with a whole home insulative wrap. Because of that, one of the biggest benefits is decreased heating and cooling costs. For others, it’s increased curb appeal. If you have older siding that wasn’t well-affixed to the home, you may notice your home is quieter and less drafty. If you’re replacing wood siding with vinyl siding, your biggest benefit may be the fact there’s little to no maintenance.

How Do I Know if I Need New Siding?

There are many signs that indicate it’s time for new siding. If your home feels more drafty and you notice increasing utility costs, it may be due to your old siding. Warped siding or that where the boards or pieces no longer seam together properly also means it’s time to call a siding company.
