If your siding looks like it’s seen better days, it may be time to move forward with wood siding repairs.
Wood siding improves the look of your home while providing visual interest and protecting its exterior from the elements. For all the good things about wood siding, the downfall is that just like any other material, it needs to be replaced every so often. Wood siding is susceptible to rot and moisture issues, so if your siding looks like it’s seen better days, it may be time to move forward with wood siding repairs.
With proper maintenance, most wood siding can last anywhere from 20 to 40 years following installation. After your siding repair project is complete, plan on having it resealed or repainted every few years and patch up cracks and holes as they develop. It’s also important to replace any damaged parts of your wood siding as they show up before they can affect other areas.
We recommend having an expert take a look at your siding if it shows signs of extensive warping, cracking, and damage. If your siding is more than a few decades old, there’s a good chance replacement will be recommended over repair. We don’t perform entire home siding replacements or work with vinyl, but can refer you to companies that do. We do perform surgical, small to medium repairs and work not only with wood but also cement board (Hardie). If we are unable to perform the work you need due to labor shortages, we’ll provide a referral to someone who can.
