How to Tell if Your Siding Needs Replacing

 width=There is no doubt that siding is the best option for the exterior of your home. It is the most durable and the least expensive and it requires very little maintenance. All general contractors, Virginia and other states, will tell you that in spite of its durability there will come a time when you will have to replace the siding on your home. Sunshine Contracting is the leading supplier and installer for siding in Virginia and we would be proud to beautify the outside of your home.

Factors that lead to damage on exterior siding

Time is one of the major factors to look at when you inspect the siding. The color will fade over time and it is a huge task to try to paint it. We can do the job for you but like all other general contractors, Virginia homes that want siding painted require the use of spray painting equipment. Painting by hand is possible but you do have to make sure you buy the proper paint and give the siding several coats to ensure that you have full coverage. It is so much easier to have Sunshine Contracting replace it for you.


Other factors include:

  • Damage from the wind and other elements of the weather. Small dents can occur when the wind blows small rocks and debris up against the siding, Hail and ice can also cause such faults as well. These mar the smooth look of the siding and are reasons for replacement. Sometimes the wind may be strong enough to take some strips of siding off all together.  When this happens it is hard to get the same matching color because the sun will have faded the color somewhat and new strips of siding will be very noticeable.
  • Scuff marks. Whenever you rest anything against the siding you run the risk of causing scuff marks. This is especially true of the ladder you use to climb up on the roof to make an inspection or carry out repairs. Over time these marks will worsen leading to the need to having the siding replaced.
