Five Signs Your Home Needs New Siding

As a smart homeowner, you appreciate how important it is to be prepared for any maintenance or repairs that need to be done on your home. That way, you can plan ahead and set aside a budget in a timely manner. However, one of the things that many homeowners overlook is the condition of their home’s siding — yet this is crucial to keeping their home in good shape. Here are five signs you need new siding:

The reason for this is that while the siding itself is impermeable, water can seep in through the cracks and holes and affect the wood underneath. This can result in rot, mildew, and mold growth, which can all impact the health of your home’s structure — not to mention the health of your family and yourself. (Note: Mold can be toxic. Black mold especially can cause severe respiratory issues, headaches and chronic fatigue.)
