For many of us, the prospect of doing a big home improvement job can be daunting. But with this in mind, Absolute Home Solutions would like to talk about some questions we are frequently asked about our siding services. So let’s dive right in!
How Do You Know if Your Siding is Bad?
It is important to do a regular inspection of your home by walking around and looking at your property. If your siding has gone bad you may notice several signs: the appearance of fungi, obvious gaps in the seams, caulking failure, delamination, boards that no long lie against the house, paint failure, swelling, and moisture inside your home.
Why is Residing Your Home Necessary?
New siding will not only give your home a new look, it will also help it look more modern and will reduce the cost of the upkeep and maintenance of your home. Siding is made to protect your home from the elements like rain and snow that can cause water damage in your home. Siding is also more cost effective for your home as it protects from the cold and heat of the elements, allowing you to keep a comfortable temperature inside your home longer.
What is the Best Siding for My Home?
When choosing new siding for your home, it is important to take several things into consideration. You should consider your neighborhood restrictions, the architectural style of your home, desired effect, and the budget for your siding.
Do I Need a Moisture Barrier?
One of the most important things to do while replacing your siding is to replace your moisture barrier. A moisture barrier allows water vapor to pass from the inside of your home to the outside without letting the water come inside your home. Without this barrier your home could end up with serious water damage. During siding remove, the old moisture barrier becomes torn and need to be replaced with the new siding. Installing a new moisture barrier is a critical part of any good siding installation.
Can Siding Installations Affect the Interior of My Home?
Like any job requiring tools, you may notice some rattling and pounding on the exterior walls of your home while the siding is being replaced. It is suggested that you remove any fragile items from the exterior and interior walls of your home that could fall during installation.
