Exterior House Siding Repair and Siding Replacement: Know When You Need Each

"Do I need exterior house siding repair or replacement?" is one of the most often asked questions in our business. The truth is that it is subjective. When it comes to siding installation, and even more so when considering whether you need siding replacement or repair, there are various factors to consider. We'll look into the many types of damage and determine when each solution is the best fit for making your property look brand new.

Wind Damage

If our area's enormous storms have taught us anything, it's that we should never underestimate Mother Nature's might. It may be time to replace your siding if it has been damaged by heavy winds. If your siding has been damaged by high winds, make sure you repair it with material that can withstand the force of the wind. Sturdy siding, fortunately, can withstand hurricane-force winds.

Suggested Action: Replace


One of the most common concerns we see with vinyl siding is warping induced by extreme heat. Because vinyl is made of plastic, it can distort when exposed to extreme heat throughout the summer. Repairing your siding if it has minor flaws could be the most cost-effective solution. While this is a temporary fix, keep in mind that the siding will distort if exposed to excessive heat again.

Suggested Action: Repair (but consider replacing)

Siding Recalls

Various types of siding have been subject to a number of recalls over the years. Some siding brands are in desperate need of replacement, whether the material is insufficient or the product line has problems. Hardboard sidings are regularly recalled due to the fact that they have been demonstrated to deteriorate with time. If you've been notified that your home's siding has been recalled, you'll need to repair it right away.
