Because the siding takes up a large portion of your home’s exterior, you’ll want to make sure it’s always in good shape. But you can only do so much repair and maintenance. That’s why, once you see the warning signs, you should start planning for a siding replacement.

  1. Extensive Rot
    This is probably the most obvious indication that you need an exterior upgrade. The siding acts as a barrier that protects your home from weather damage, but it can’t perform this crucial role when it’s already rotting or crumbling. In fact, it may end up compromising the thermal comfort and structural integrity of your home. Rot is a typical issue in wood siding, so if you’re going for a replacement, make sure to choose a material that is impervious to it.

  1. Cracks and Gaps
    The fact is that inclement weather can be extremely harsh to your home’s exterior. Wind-blown debris and large hailstones, for example, can damage your siding upon impact. This leaves cracks, dents and other openings in the material, leaving the wall underneath susceptible to water and moisture. Not only that, these gaps may also allow for heating or cooling energy to leak outside of your home. 

  1. Peeling or Faded Colors
