When the time comes, Yanish Custom Exteriors will walk you through the entire process from start to finish, making it as smooth as possible. But how do you know when it’s time to start that process? The reality is, all siding will eventually need to be replaced, but here are some things you should know before this time comes.
Signs it is time to replace your siding.
Discoloration or finish. When you begin to see your siding discolor or the finish wear down it is normally accompanied by some cracks in the siding as well. This is all caused by the harsh elements your siding faces year in and year out.
Increase in energy costs. An increase of energy costs means something in your home isn’t insulating properly. Many people are quick to blame windows and doors, but your siding could be the culprit.
