3 Signs Your Home’s Siding Needs to be Repaired or Replaced  

Repairing or replacing siding is not something that can be left out of a home owner’s to do list. Just like the roof, your home’s siding protects your home form different natural elements. On top of that, it also adds curb appeal to the exterior of your home. But when should you replace your siding? Below are some signs every home owner should look out for.

1. Loose, cracked or peeling siding

When you notice your siding has a chalky texture, chips or cracks, it is a sign that they need to be replaced. In fact, there might be an even bigger problem behind the panels such as mold or wood rot from water seeping. If it is a small section that is affected, you can make slight repairs. However, if there are large sections, it would be wise to have a professional assess the damage and handle the repairs.

2. Warping or rotting siding

This is an easy to spot sign. You should take some time and visually inspect the siding of your home. If you see any of these signs, it may mean that there is some moisture penetrating through the panels. With a sharp object, poke the siding to check how hard or soft the material is. If it is rotting or it is too soft, it means it needs to be replaced immediately.

3. Seam separation

You need to replace your siding if you notice that seams between the siding boards are pulling apart. This can be due to improperly installed siding or siding that has aged. If they are not replaced, moisture and rain might seep in and cause larger damage.

Any of the above problems are an indication that your siding is no serving its purpose and it should be replaced. Contact Premiere Roofing with any questions you may have or to schedule a service.

3 Things to Consider When Choosing New Shingles

Regardless of the type of roof you may have, it always pays to take home improvements seriously. Shingles aren’t just about practicality when it comes to warding off the more extreme weather your home may face, they’re also an important factor in how your home comes across to others. Consider the following tips before picking the winner.

Styles and Shapes

An architectural shingle is generally defined as one that gives your roof some dimension, while a 3-tab shingle is more or less flat. As you might imagine, architectural shingles tend to give your home more personality, but they also may increase the stability of your roof too. A 3-tab shingle is more likely to be damaged by wind or sun damage, which can make it a poor long-term choice.

Climate

The shingles above you have a lot to do with the temperature around you. An attic can be affected as much as 40 degrees either way, depending on how much light the shingle reflects or absorbs. Whether your attic is finished or not, it’s worth considering how this affects your heating and cooling bills.

Colors

If you have a high-steep roof, it will get a lot more exposure than a flat roof. Ensure you pick a color that you not only like, but will also fit in with the rest of the neighborhood. Ultimately, this increases your curb appeal which can help get the price you want when you sell.
