Unless you’re a professional roofing contractor, it can be hard to determine when your home needs siding restoration. And we get it — investigating your home’s nooks and crannies for signs of siding deterioration isn’t always at the top of your to-do list. We recommend setting some time aside for this at least on a monthly basis, but even more often if you think your siding is causing problems for your home.

At The Edge Contracting in Waukesha, Wisconsin, our roofers complete a variety of home and roofing services, including siding restoration and repair — contact us today to tackle your siding project!

In this blog, we’ll go over a few warning signs you should look for that indicate it may be time for siding restoration for your home.

1. There are signs of mold and mildew.

The siding of your home is the protective material you see on its exterior, making it another line of defense against inclement weather other than your roof. If you notice that mold, mildew or some other type of fungus is growing on your siding, take that as a sign that you need to either repair or restore your siding because mold occurs when moisture is creeping into your home.

2. Your interior paint is peeling.

Tied with the signs of mold and mildew, if the paint job of your home’s interior is peeling, that’s a sign moisture is being allowed into your home. You can also notice this if the wood around your windows and doors is peeling as well.  

If you let this get out of control, the wood under your siding can rot, causing you a larger headache than if you were to repair the siding when the problem first occurred.

3. Your energy costs are unexpectedly rising.

It might be time for a siding restoration if you notice your energy bills are pricier than normal. Your siding plays a huge role in keeping your home properly insulated, and when it’s not, your energy costs go up.

4. You see damaged seams on your roof.

If you live in an area with extremely diverse weather conditions, the change in temperatures cause your home’s siding to expand and contract. This ultimately causes damage to your home’s seams, which isn’t only aesthetically displeasing, but can mess with your home’s overall insulation.

5. It’s literally bubbling.

If you notice little bubbles blowing up on the side of your home, we suggest looking into siding restoration or repair. Bubbling occurs when water is stuck within your home’s siding, and considering siding is used to keep water out, that’s a problem. If you allow the water to continue to build up, your home’s wood will likely rot.
