Siding Repair Services
If you’re concerned about the state of your siding, the Carolina Exteriors team is here for you. We’d be happy to come out to inspect the state of your siding, giving you a full evaluation of what we see and whether the damage can be repaired or replaced.
We can also identify issues beyond just the surface level, making note of any vulnerable areas that may be susceptible to more serious types of damage. When you hire our team, you can expect clear and honest communication every step of the way, regardless of the scope of your project.
Common Causes of Siding Damage
Even the most durable siding will start to show signs of wear and tear after decades of protecting your home against the elements. Here’s a closer look at the most common causes of siding damage that we see here in North Carolina:
Installation errors: If your siding wasn’t installed correctly in the first place, then it’s more likely to show signs of damage after just a few years.
Moisture issues: When water makes its way beneath your siding, it can cause the material to bubble, buckle, or warp.
Pests: Outdoor pests like carpenter bees, termites, and woodpeckers can cause damage to your siding.
Extreme weather: Weather like rain, wind, and hail can take a toll on your siding, leading to small areas of damage over time.
Poor maintenance: Failing to properly maintain your siding can lead to issues over the years.
Can I DIY My Siding Repair Project?
If your siding only has small amounts of damage, you might be tempted to make the repairs yourself. After all, how hard could it be? Well, in most cases, unless you have prior experience working with siding, even small damage can be very difficult to repair.
When you attempt to remedy the issues yourself, you run the risk of causing even more serious damage. As a result, you’ll likely spend more time and money fixing your work than you would have if you hired a professional siding repair company from the beginning. We recommend saving the DIY efforts for simpler projects and working with a professional when it comes to your siding.
When Repairs Are Not Enough
In some cases, your siding may be beyond repair. In that case, you’re better off scheduling a full siding replacement project instead. If you notice any of the following signs, it might be time to think about replacing your siding altogether:
- Pieces of your siding are cracked or loose
- There is mold growing on your siding
- You notice dents on multiple siding boards
- You can see water stains on your siding or on your inside walls
- You have to repaint your siding every few years
- Your energy bills are higher than normal
