Maintenance and Repairs - Common Siding Problems:
The upkeep and safeguarding of a home can be a time-consuming and sometimes unnerving task. Without the correct equipment and know-how, replacing rotten or damaged siding or trim can be difficult and precarious. Below are some of the common indicators and causes of siding problems. If these issues are not properly fixed or replaced, larger problems can occur such as structural issues, mildew or mold.
Damaged siding can simply be a result of siding being old and worn out. Exposure over the years to the elements can lead to damaged siding. Other causes may be improper installation or poor maintenance. There are a variety of reasons for damaged siding. Rotten wood occurs because moisture has found its way into the wood and cannot escape. It can also be a result of over exposure to the sun resulting in the wood splitting and cracking. When wood cracks, water can infiltrate. Improper flashing is a common cause of damaged siding or trim boards. Without proper flashing, water can get into your home leading to a number of problems. The bottom line is no one wants siding or trim that looks badly since the exterior of your home is the first thing visitors see when they arrive and the first thing you see! Properly installed cement products can
alleviate these problems, while updating the look of your home. We offer a variety of exterior packages, as well as, home repairs. We can reside and reframe chimneys or other areas of your home that have may have damage from rot or other critters. No project is too large or too small.
