Top 6 signs of siding deterioration

Siding is one of the most essential elements to protect your home. Several issues other than age can affect the integrity and longevity of your siding. If you are planning on doing home renovations, look out for:

  • Rot and rust
  • Mold and mildew
  • Incorrect installation
  • Storm damage
  • Water damage
  • Heat damage

Techniques for properly fixing damaged siding

The best way to resolve issues with your siding depends on the type of siding material, the way it was installed, the local climate and the type of damage afflicted. Vinyl siding tends to crack during changes in temperature if it was nailed incorrectly.

Certitude Home Improvements repairs existing problems and teaches you how to prevent them from occurring again. We can renail siding or utilize other techniques like caulking, sealing, and painting to resist mold and moisture and stop exposure damage from plaguing your home. After we finish, you’ll be left with durable, beautiful siding for years to come!

Severe storms have sustained 58+ mph windspeeds. Strong winds loosen shingles on your roof and cause them to crack or blister. Hail damages your roof by wearing down the granules on asphalt shingles. When shingles are worn down, loosened or fractured, the areas under the shingles are vulnerable. Leaks are common with both phenomena. Over the past 12 months, Philadelphia has seen the most severe thunderstorms with 77 storms reported. Pittsburg saw the most hail with 38 reports.

Rain and Snow Affect Your Roof

Heavy and consistent rainfall gravitates to and infiltrates any weakened areas on the roof. It’s important to inspect your roof to make sure water is flowing off properly to prevent leaks and moisture damage. After a snowstorm, inspect and remove any snow or ice buildup along the edges of your roof. The weight of the snow damages your roof and gutters. In the last 12 months, Philadelphia received the most rain with 38.5 inches reported. Scranton reported 26.9 inches of snow, the most in PA.

Philadelphia 38.5 inches 18 inches

Seamless siding repairs vs new siding installation

Homeowners sometimes believe that the only way to uniformly repair siding isn’t to repair it but instead have complete new siding installed. While new siding is the right option for a new home, an exterior makeover, or fixing the extensive damage, other times repairing siding in certain areas will do the trick.

The talented contractors at Certitude Home Improvements will replace sections of siding while still maintaining the overall look of your home. No matter what siding material your home uses, we install replacement sections with attention to detail to provide a like-new appearance. You won’t be able to tell where the old siding ends and the new begins when you work with our skilled craftsmen!
