Stop Wood Rot Before It Destroys Your Home
While the color, texture, and overall aesthetics of your property’s siding are all about appearance, some types of siding may be more resistant to Mother Nature, harmful rot, and pesky bugs than other types and will necessitate alternate maintenance services. This approach will determine the lifespan of your siding before needing to be replaced, repaired, or painted.
Vinyl Siding: It is by far the industry leader of modern home siding installations due to its professional quality in terms of durability, color options, and low cost which makes it attractive to the budget-conscious customer. However, even though vinyl is as versatile a material as they come and has the potential to improve your property’s energy efficiency, it is not especially waterproof, and improper installation is known to lead to water seeping behind your home’s paneling which results in mold and other problems like warped and bent wood under severe weather conditions.
Wood Siding: We all love the natural and gorgeous appearance that wood siding adds to a home making it instantly warm and inviting. Whether shake or shingles, board and batten, or engineered wood, wood remains a topmost choice for homeowners due to its classic & timeless look and because of its benefit of being easily replaced in select quantities if damaged. Wood can be stained and painted in limitless colors. And it’s lightweight feature makes installation quick and easy thus lowering overall labor cost and time compared to masonry. Having said that, without adequate maintenance or regular repairs, wood siding and trim is especially susceptible to insect and water damage.

How to inspect your own siding
The very last thing you want is serious wood rot damage, mold, or mildew causing leaks, cracks, or other serious issues down the road because they weren’t discovered early on. If you choose to inspect your home on your own, this is what you should look out for:
- Rotting or warping.
- Cracked or loose siding that may hide extensive damage underneath.
- Bubbles are an immediate red flag indicating potential water or moisture damage.
- Holes caused by insects. These holes could enlarge over time.
- Dry rot that compromises the majority of the siding while leaving the top layer undamaged
- Growth such as fungus, mold, or mildew may indicate water seepage.
- Peeling paint or wallpaper that is pulling away from a wall inside of a home may be caused by exterior siding that has allowed water to seep its way in thus permeating through the wallboard.
