Repairing vs. Replacing harmed siding

The siding that blankets the exterior of your house not only helps keep your house looking good, it helps to secure it from the weather conditions. However, gradually the siding might end up being damaged, needing to be repaired or replaced. Whether you opt for siding repair or siding replacement depends mainly on what kind of siding it is that you possess, and what the level of damage is.

Vinyl siding is a great looking option to wood items. It does not need painting or much maintenance beyond the periodic hosing off. However, it is relatively flimsy and breakable, so any kind of impact on the siding can leave behind a fissure. If this takes place, there really isn’t any way to repair the board; it needs to be replaced.

The good news is that provided the remainder of the vinyl siding remains in good shape, you can undertake siding replacement of the affected boards by disconnecting them from where they snap in, and joining a new board into place, while leaving the remainder of the boards alone.

Cedar & wood
There are two kinds of problems that can occur with cedar shingles and solid wood siding. The first is gouges that may be marked into the wood by a pressure cleaner, hail stones, and other kinds of force. The second is rot caused by extreme wetness damage for many years. If your siding has been gashed, it may be repaired either by sanding it down and painting or staining it, or by filling up deeper gouges with exterior grade spackling, then priming and painting.

If the siding has begun to rot, the rotting rows need to be replaced. It is not needed to replace all the siding if only a few rows are rotting, except if you plan to try installing a new material.

Slate asbestos
If you have much older siding that resembles slate, this is likely asbestos siding. The good news is that this siding stands up well. The problem is that you can not disturb it without having qualified experts at your side to encapsulate and remove it for you. If it is not crumbling, government standards advise leaving it alone or painting it. If it is falling apart, it must be changed by a professional roofer.

Like vinyl siding if there are cracks or broken pieces, the easiest thing to do is to replace only the damaged parts of aluminum siding. However if you have smaller holes in the siding, this may be repaired with a touch of color-matched exterior-grade caulk. Smooth it on to fill the gaps and repair the siding.

The verdict
The vast majority of the time siding may be repaired rather than replaced. In the cases where siding replacement is needed, typically only the affected boards need to be changed, and not the whole house. Only significant structural issues or progressive rot that has spread out throughout the house’s exterior will call for the replacement of the whole siding. Otherwise, replace your siding when you’re ready for a change and make siding repair work in a timely method to take care of other minor problems.
