Outside of the roof, siding is the largest exterior component of your home. Siding protects the interior of your home from the weather, pests, and more. It also contributes to the thermal enclosure, which keeps your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
As siding installers in Alabama and Florida, the team of Ridgeline Construction Roofing & Exteriors is familiar with the unpredictable weather of the South and knowledgable about how it can impact your siding. Hail, rain, and even intense sun can all cause the siding of your home to deteriorate, warp, crack, or rot. Repairing this damage is necessary for three reasons.
- Damaged siding makes your home more susceptible to water damage. Over time, the water that has permeated your siding will cause the wood framing to rot and the development of mold, which will grow on your insulation.
- If the thermal enclosure is compromised and conditioned air is escaping the home, you will see a spike in your electric bills. Your HVAC system will have to work twice as hard to heat or cool your home, which will be costly.
- The state of your siding can have a significant impact on the curb appeal and resale value of your home.
If you have seen signs of siding damage or suspect that there are hidden issues, contact a professional siding contractor like Ridgeline Construction Roofing & Exteriors.
