Your siding is one of the most important parts of your home, as it protects your interior from the wind and rain. Because of this, it’s important to keep your siding in great shape, and our team at Ladder Labor is here to help you do that. We offer a comprehensive range of siding services, including installation, maintenance, and repair, and you can count on us to keep your siding in excellent condition.
In this article, we will go over a few ways to tell whether you need siding repair—if you notice any of the following issues, we encourage you to give us a call right away.
- Visible Cracks or Gaps- One way to tell if you need siding repair services is to check your siding for cracks in or gaps between the boards. Your siding is supposed to create a seamless layer to protect your home from water damage, but cracks and gaps allow water to get through. If you notice openings in your siding, we encourage you to make arrangements for siding repair as soon as possible.
- Warping and Rot- If you have wood siding, you will need to keep an eye out for signs of warping or rot. If the boards of your siding start to bow out or parts of the wood start to rot away, then you definitely need siding repair services.
- Increased Utility Bills- A third way to determine whether you need siding repair is to keep an eye on your monthly energy bills. If they go up for no apparent reason, it’s likely that you have a problem with your insulation, causing your home to take on/lose more heat than usual. Your siding is a vital part of your home’s insulation, and we encourage you to check it regularly to make sure it’s protecting your home from passive heat transfer.
