On the long list of things to maintain in your home, siding is usually at the bottom of the list. While high-quality, professionally installed siding can last many years, there are still issues that can surface that you should watch for, address, and have repaired. Don’t let these problems go for too long as they can cause a lot of trouble and expense down the road. To keep costs low and your home in good shape, we’ve put together a few tips on identifying siding issues early before it’s too late.
Possible Siding Issues
What kind of siding do you have? Vinyl siding tends to have fewer issues than wood. Vinyl can warp in the heat, fade, and is susceptible to weather damage such as hail or high winds.
Wood siding can have issues, too, especially in an area like Baltimore.
Pests – Being a natural material, wood can attract a variety of pests, from beetles and termites to woodpeckers.
Moisture – While it’s designed to keep moisture out, siding can rot or mold in damp climates if it’s damaged.
Peeling/fading – After a while, some siding may fade or even peel, especially in locations of bright sunlight.
Roof problems – Issues with your roof can have a literal trickle-down effect on your siding.
Loud – If your siding creaks a lot or makes noise, especially as the temperature changes, it may have been installed too tightly.
Addressing Siding Issues
The good news is many siding issues, if addressed early, are easily avoided and repaired. Start with making sure you use a great contractor to properly install your siding. Check your siding thoroughly at least once a quarter and after any major storms. Look for any of the above issues. If you spot anything amiss, contact your installation contractor or an equivalent expert to repair it.
It’s as easy as that! With a little diligence and knowing what to look for, you can keep your siding in tiptop shape for years to come. At Badger Contracting, we can take care of all your needs. Contact us today for an inspection!
Your siding and roof are the key exterior features that
protect your home from the elements. Knowing what signs indicate a need for
siding replacement can be crucial. Don’t wait until it becomes compromised and
allows moisture or other issues to damage the interior of your home. Contact a
professional contractor if you experience any of the following signs.
Extensive Holes and
Small holes in siding can be patched or repaired, but
significant damage to the structure of your siding means it’s time for a
replacement. This can happen to most siding materials, including vinyl,
aluminum, and wood. Replacing the siding altogether is typically more
cost-effective than patching several holes.
Frequent Cracking and
How often are you painting your siding? Other than wood
siding, which should be painted every 10 years, paint jobs should not be needed
frequently. If your paint begins to peel and crack after a few years, it may be
a sign that there is an issue with your siding and it needs to be replaced. Talk
to your contractor about the type of paint used, this will help determine whether
the paint or the siding is the source of the issue.
Rot, Mold, or Mildew
While dry rot may only eat away at wood siding, problems
like mold and mildew can affect any and all types of siding. These issues could
also be pointing to moisture issues behind your siding. Some surface mildew can
be cleaned, but rot, mold, or extensive mildew issues require your siding to be
removed and replaced.

You face dozens of design decisions when building or remodeling your home. Whether you’re upgrading your siding, installing new siding, or simply touching up your paint job, color matters. Learn how to select the perfect siding color today and add instant curb appeal to your home.
Consider Your Climate
Do you live in a particularly cloudy region with lots of snowfall, or is it sunny and warm all year? Climate matters when it comes to color options. A specific color may look very different during a bright sunny summer than it will in a cold, snowy winter. Consider how your home will look throughout the seasons and various weather patterns that are typical to your area.
Deep, bold colors are popular for modern designs. However, if you have a particularly large house, it can feel quite brooding. Consider choosing a lighter, more neutral color for your siding and touch up a few trim details with darker colors.
Complement Your Roof
Finally, consider your roof color before committing to a new
siding paint job. This is particularly true if you’re selecting a shade that’s
very different than your current siding color. Brown shingles may match your
wood-toned siding, but will look unattractive if you switch it up with a
dark-toned siding color.
Find a matching or accent color to complement your roof. If you’re also replacing your roof, you can consider a brand-new color palette for both, but be sure you keep them both in mind as you shop for paint colors. Your roof and siding are significant investments that can last for decades, so be sure you find the perfect, timeless match.
