3 Times You May Need Siding Installation Services

While the siding on your home can seem impervious to the weather for years at a time, the day will come when it gets damaged enough that it needs to be replaced. You'll need to hire a reputable siding installer in your area to ensure that your siding is replaced correctly using all the right techniques. 

Here are three times when you may need siding installation services for your home.

1. After an insurance inspection

Home insurance companies may send an inspector out to check the condition of your home before agreeing to sell you home insurance. After all, they want to make sure your home is worth insuring and won't be an excessive liability to them. If the inspector decides that your siding is in poor shape, you may be required to replace the siding before insurance coverage will start. Typically this will mean you'll need to hire a professional contractor for siding installation.

2. Before selling your home

Curb appeal can be a big factor when selling a home, and your home's siding can be an important part of curb appeal, since the outside of the house can be seen from the road. You'll likely want to clean the siding off, and while doing so you may notice that it needs repairs or even replacement. Getting the siding replaced before you put the home on the market may give your home's curb appeal a big boost.

If you don't take care of repairs before putting your home on the market, you may end up needing to do some of them before closing on a sale. In some cases, a buyer will negotiate to buy the house once the seller has paid for repairs. In other cases, you may be able to take a more hands-off approach to the repairs by simply giving the buyer an allowance and letting them hire their own siding contractors.

3. After a storm

In some cases, storms can cause or precipitate siding deterioration. If you have a windstorm or other severe weather, be sure to check your siding afterwards in case of damage. Hail, wind, wind-thrown objects, or even a rare lightning strike could significantly damage your siding.

If the siding has cracked in multiple places or large portions have blown loose in the storm, you'll likely need either partial or total replacement.

These are just a few of the situations in which you may need siding installation services. If any of these sound like your current situation, get in touch with your local siding contractors today to learn more and schedule a visit to take care of all your siding needs.
