Your siding is one of your home’s first lines of defense when it comes to the weather, regardless of the season. Because of that, getting the proper repairs and installations before warmer weather sets in are important for a number of reasons. This month at Senco, we’re giving you five reasons why you should get your home’s exterior ready for the spring and summer months, whether it’s through new siding installation or repairs.
Protection From the Elements
Summer weather can be hot and humid, with occasional thunderstorms and hailstorms. Damaged siding can leave your home vulnerable to things like water damage, mold growth, and pest infestations. By getting your siding repaired for summer, you can protect your home from weather conditions for years to come.
Improved Energy Efficiency
If your siding is damaged, it can also potentially compromise your home’s energy efficiency. Air can leak through the cracks and holes in your siding, leading to higher energy bills. This is especially important if you endure hot summers and rely on your AC for extra comfort in your home. By repairing your siding, you can seal up those leaks and cracks and improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, saving money on extra bills!
Enhanced Curb Appeal
Aside from protection, your home’s siding is also one of the first things people tend to notice about your home. Damaged or extremely old siding can potentially detract from your home’s appearance and reduce its curb appeal. New siding installation or repair can boost both your home’s appearance and value.
Prevent Further Damage
When your siding is damaged, it can ultimately lead to even further damage down the road. For example, water damage can cause wood rot, which can spread to other areas of your home. Getting these issues under control ahead of time will help you avoid more costly repairs in the future.
Peace of Mind
Knowing that you took the precautions needed in order to keep your home in good condition and protected from all types of weather can give you peace of mind. By repairing or installing new siding, you can enjoy the spring and summer months without worrying about the potential damage to your home.
