When siding starts showing signs of damage, many homeowners fear it may lead to a costly repair or replacement. Many homeowners opt for a repair in hopes that it will save them money. Sometimes, that may work, and other times, it may only be a temporary fix as the siding needs to be replaced. Repairs are suitable for fixing surface-level and aesthetic issues. Not opting for a replacement when required can lead to more damage and additional expenses down the line. Here are some of the reasons why it’s better to replace your siding.
- A Repair Won’t Cut It – If there are enough signs of damage or rot forming on your siding, your siding most likely cannot be saved. The worse off your siding is, the less likely it is that a repair can fix it.
- The Patch Job Will Be Obvious –Over time, the color of your siding will fade in the sunlight. A new patch of siding may be obvious and not match the rest of your house. It might be better to replace all the siding for a cohesive look when this happens.
- You Want to Increase Your Home’s Value – If you are thinking of selling your home or you know you may want to sell your home in the next few years, replacing the siding is the better option for increasing property value. New siding will give your home a makeover, better protect it, and make potential buyers more comfortable knowing they probably won’t have to deal with repairs.
