Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to revitalize your home with some much needed TLC. Be sure to pay attention to the exterior components of your home, especially your siding–which may have taken a beating during the winter between freezing temperatures, snow and ice.
As a leading roofer and siding contractor in the local area, Gresham Roofing and Construction recommends inspecting your siding this spring. Look out for the following signs of damage:
1. Loose or Missing Siding Panels
Winter storms characterized by strong winds and heavy snowfall can cause siding panels to detach from your home. When this happens, your home is more vulnerable to extreme temperatures and moisture damage. Inspecting your siding following a winter storm is critical.
As you examine your siding for any loose or missing panels, keep an eye out for cracks and broken panels, as well. Cold temperatures can make old, worn-out siding brittle. If you find damage, contact your siding and roofing contractor for repairs or replacement as soon as possible.
Holes and punctures on the surface of your siding not only exposes the material to the elements, but also to pests. Have the affected siding panel replaced by a professional contractor in your area.
4. Moisture Damage
Signs of moisture damage on your siding include rotting or warped panels and premature discoloration. Your home is at risk of experiencing leaks whenever these are found. Ice dams forming on your roof could also indicate moisture damage.
