While your roof is your home’s first defense from the weather, your siding is also important when protecting your biggest asset, your home. Just like your roof, siding can get old and damaged from the natural elements. So let’s talk about siding, rapid city weather, and when it’s time for a repair or replacement.
What are the benefits of siding?
There are many benefits to note about composite siding:
- Siding is very durable
- It’s low maintenance and easy to take care of
- Overall its energy efficient, saving you money
- There are a lot of options for style and color
With these benefits you’ll be spending less time maintaining your home’s exterior and more time relaxing.
How does the weather affect your siding?
Weather plays a big role in ruining your siding. The most common damage is caused by temperature change. When the temperature changes suddenly it can cause expansion and contraction in some siding types. Heavy winds, snow and hail storms can also cause extensive damage to your home’s siding. Not all weather causes damage though, sometimes your siding just begins to dull and get discolored from the natural elements.
So what are the signs of siding that needs replacement?
- There could be punctures or chipping from debris
- It could be warped or cracked from temperature changes
- Pieces could be loose from heavy winds
- Or your siding can just start to look old and faded
If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to call a contractor immediately to fix the damage. Once your siding is damaged, it’s easy for the outdoor elements, such as rain and bugs, to come inside your home. Once these elements have a way in, they can cause severe damage such as flooding, mold or mildew build up, and even infestations.
