Siding is one of your home’s first lines of defense so it’s important to keep it in top shape for as long as possible, letting it perform admirably beyond its lifespan. Unfortunately, there are still some things that can damage your siding and cause it to require an early replacement. As a homeowner, you should know what these factors are so you can avoid them.

Here, home siding replacement company Arch Exteriors LLC reveals the usual suspects behind the common siding issues.

Moisture

Just like with your roof, moisture is the number one enemy of your siding. While siding is designed to keep moisture out, if it’s damaged and isn’t repaired in time, moisture can easily penetrate it and cause further damage. You can often tell that your siding is affected by moisture if you begin to spot warping and buckling on the system.

Pests

On the other hand, if you have wood siding or any siding that uses organic material, then it’s particularly vulnerable to pests like termites. To prevent them from damaging your siding, consider using some insecticides or douse the siding in hot water running through a spray nozzle. Alternatively, you can also use eco-friendly products on surrounding trees to eradicate pest sources without harming the tree.

Poor Installation

Poorly installed siding can’t be guaranteed to last long, no thanks to inexperienced contractors. If your contractor doesn’t have the necessary experience needed to properly install the siding, its lifespan can be significantly reduced. With that in mind, make sure to do your homework and conduct the proper background check on your prospective siding contractor before hiring them.

Poor Maintenance

Likewise, failing to keep up with the maintenance procedure of your siding can cause serious damage to the system. By contacting a contractor to regularly inspect or maintain the siding, the small kinds of damage can be spotted before they become a larger problem.
