Siding Maintenance: Keeping an Eye On Potential Problems
When was the last time you took a good look at your home’s siding? Many homeowners overlook this critical aspect of their property until it’s too late. Siding maintenance is not only about keeping up the appearance of your home but also about protecting it from leaks caused by damage and harsh weather conditions, insect infestation, and mold growth. If you’re not regularly monitoring your siding, your home is at risk for significant water damage down to the studs.

What Makes Siding Maintenance Necessary?
The most obvious reason for maintaining your siding is the fear of visible damage. Some signs that indicate you have overlooked your siding’s maintenance include:
- Warping or buckling: If your siding starts to warp or buckle, it has been exposed to moisture and can no longer adequately protect your home. A focused walk around your home and visual inspection may help identify an issue. It is important to note that even small cracks could point to more significant problems. Get in and inspect – poke around. Is the layer beneath your siding solid, or does it give way if you touch it? If there’s rot beneath the warped portions of your siding, it might be time to call a Matute professional.
- Cracking or peeling: Siding can become brittle over time and begin to crack or peel. This damage looks unsightly and exposes your home to potential water damage. Cracking or peeling can occur due to extreme weather conditions, pests, or old age. Cracks and holes allow water to seep in and cause damage to the structure of your home. This water damage can cause significant structural damage, putting your family at risk and cutting deep into your bank account. As mentioned above, even a tiny crack can cause serious damage (and expensive structural repairs) if left untreated.
- Fading color: If the color of your siding has significantly faded, it’s a sign that it’s past its prime and needs replacing. Over time, siding can lose its color and appear dull or discolored. This deterioration not only affects the aesthetic appeal of your home but also indicates that your siding can no longer withstand the elements.
Homeowners who live in a Homeowners Association (HOA) have no choice regarding fading colors. If the HOA requires a change, acquiring a quote is probably your next step – like it or not.
- Increased energy bills: Damaged or old siding can lead to poor insulation, causing your energy bills to soar. This increased energy usage is because damaged insulation allows air to escape and makes it harder for your HVAC system to maintain a comfortable temperature. One of the primary purposes of siding is to help your home retain heat and cold. It provides insulation from the elements year-round in any region. Old or damaged siding doesn’t insulate well, which is reflected in your energy bill. This could also shorten the lifespan of your HVAC systems, as the excessive stress put on them by temperature fluctuations can be more than an older unit can handle.
- Paint or wallpaper peeling inside your home: If you notice paint or wallpaper peeling on the interior walls of your home, it could be a sign that water has found its way into your home through the siding. This moisture can lead to mold growth and other severe structural issues if not addressed promptly. It can also put your family’s health at risk, so it is essential to take this matter seriously.

The Benefits of Properly Maintaining Your Siding
Replacing your siding may seem like a significant investment, but the benefits outweigh the cost. Here are some of the advantages of new siding:
- Enhanced curb appeal: As the first thing people see when they visit your home, your siding plays a crucial role in creating a good impression. Your siding, when kept in pristine condition, boosts your home’s curb appeal and make it stand out in the neighborhood.
- Increased property value: Updating and maintaining your siding not only improves its appearance but also increases the value of your home. This increase is significant if you’re planning to sell your property in the future.
- Improved energy efficiency: As mentioned earlier, when you maintain or add new siding, you can help improve insulation and reduce energy costs. It acts as an extra layer of protection against heat and cold, making it easier for your HVAC system to maintain a comfortable temperature. And who doesn’t like having a few extra dollars in your pocket at the end of each month?
- Protection from the elements: Quality siding is designed to withstand the harsh elements of nature, protecting your home from wind, rain, and other weather conditions. No more worrying about water damage or pests invading your property. When you maintain your siding, you can identify any issues and remedy them before pests take up residence in your residence.
- Improves the home structure and safety: When you maintain your siding, it not only improves the appearance of your home but also helps maintain its structural integrity. It acts as a barrier against water and pests, preventing any potential damage to the structure of your home.
