When Should I Replace My Siding?

 Damaged Siding

Replacement_Siding_Damage

Storms, baseballs, and bugs are all bad news for your siding. Those in Central Illinois who took the brunt of last week’s storms know this all too well. Damaged siding doesn’t just look bad- it can also create cracks, gaps and holes in your home. These imperfections are the perfect spot for moisture to enter your house and cause your framework to rot. Siding defects can also be a good way for creepy crawlies to gain entry to your home. Some bugs (like termites) are infamous for devastating a home’s structural integrity.

If you want replacement siding that can stand up to daily wear and tear, vinyl siding is your best choice. But our Preservation Vinyl Siding protects against impact up to five times more than ordinary vinyl siding. This replacement siding has super-tough, acrylic DuraShield modifiers that protects your exterior against everyday bumps and dings. In independent tests, Preservation Siding held its own against winds equivalent to a category 5 hurricane! In addition to all this, Preservation Integra Siding with ClimaShield will protect against termites.

Too Much Maintenance

If you’re already spending tons of time exterior maintenance, I have bad news for you. It will only get worse. Homeowners with traditional wood siding may need to repaint their house as often as every three years! Older siding often has so many problems that it’s not worth the upkeep to maintain it. That’s why you see so many houses with older siding falling into disrepair.

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance exterior, vinyl is the way to go. Vinyl is easier to maintain and keeps its color longer. Our vinyl Preservation Siding takes that one step farther by providing a truly maintenance-free siding experience. Our replacement siding can be covered in a variety of in ColorThru pigments. These pigments produce uniform colors that go clear through the siding panels. Extreme heat and nasty storms won’t wash your colors away because our replacement siding is made with ingredients that protect it from ultraviolet degradation, heat degradation and humidity. All you have to do to clean your exterior is spray it occasionally with a garden hose.

High Utility Bills

It can be frustrating to lose money on heat that’s escaping right through your walls. If you don’t see major damage areas on your siding and attic, your loss of energy is likely due to poor insulation. There’s a number of old DIY tricks you can try to fix this. But sooner or later you’ll be tired of spending even more money on complicated DIY projects you’re not cut out for, and you’ll start looking at replacement siding options.

When that happens, we want you to give us a call. Our Preservation Integra Siding comes with ClimaShield Thermal Support System. This system molds perfectly to your replacement siding to ensure superior insulation and a high-density, waterproof skin. The system’s ship-lap profile creates a complete weather seal all the way around each panel so that no heat will escape. Finally, ClimaShield has a diamond-groove drainage plane that directs moisture away from interior walls.

Outdated Design

There’s nothing wrong with replacing your siding simply because you don’t like it. Curb appeal is one of the most important factors for selling your home. Plus, if you replace your outdated siding, your neighbors might stop directing people to “turn left at the ugly parfait pink house on the corner.” It can be fun to imagine reinventing your home into a Pinterest-worthy country farmhouse or sleek mid-century modern. If you need some inspiration, you can find us on Houzz! The most important thing about your new home is that it’s practical and makes you happy.

Growth on Siding

I used to love the classic look of ivy crawling up the side of a home. But any kind of growth on your exterior is bad business. Plant-life or algea around the seams of your siding may indicate that moisture is entering your home. This can cause rot and mold in areas that are hard to access. Plus, humidity-loving insects won’t be able to resist a damp, warm interior with 24/7 food access.

Vinyl siding is best to reduce insects and rot because water cannot penetrate vinyl the same way it gets into wood. Integra Preservation Siding comes with ClimaShield Thermal Support System. Not only does this support system insulate your home, it has a waterproof skin to discourage growth. If water does happen to get under your replacement siding, ClimaShield has a diamond-groove drainage plane that directs moisture away from interior walls.


Whatever your reason for a new exterior, installing replacement siding is guaranteed to spruce up a tired-looking home. We have the best vinyl siding on the market and it comes in traditional, board & batten, scallop, and shake siding. We can even install siding on your soffit and fascia! For a free project estimate, fill out our form or call 217-655-4496.

    I think what you published made a bunch of sense.

    However, think about this, what if you added a little information? I am not saying your content is
    not good., but suppose you added a headline that makes
    people want more? I mean Replacement Siding | When Do I Need
    New Siding? is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve
    written. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
