What to Look Out for When Checking Your Home’s Siding

High-quality siding is important for protecting your home against moisture, and it can play an important role in improving your home’s curbside appeal as well. Over time, however, your siding will begin to show signs of deterioration, and you’ll have to call on Edmonton roofers to have it replaced. At A. Clark Roofing and Siding LP, we provide quality exterior siding in Edmonton. Our roofing contractors have put together a helpful list of what to look out for when checking your siding.

– Water stains

If you notice water stains on your siding every time spring comes around, then it’s likely caused by an ice dam forming on your roof every winter. Ice dams can cause major problems for a roof, so make sure you get your roof checked out by Edmonton and Sherwood Park roofing contractors.

– Holes

One of the most obvious signs that your siding needs the attention of an Edmonton roofing company is the presence of holes. Holes in siding are often caused by insects, and they pose a significant threat because they allow for the easy penetration of water. Even small holes need to be properly repaired.

– Swelling and bulging

When your siding appears to be swelling or bulging away from the walls, it means that moisture has found its way underneath. Siding that is swelling will likely need to be replaced. You’ll have to call on professional Edmonton roofers before the moisture has a chance to cause even greater problems.

– Warping and buckling

Another common sign that moisture has infiltrated your siding is any sort of warping or buckling. Your siding will no longer align properly or sit flush against your home.

– Mold and mildew

If the above signs of water infiltration are ignored, then you are likely to end up with mold and mildew growth. Mold and mildew growth will be particularly obvious around the seams of your siding. If not properly addressed, the unwanted growth will simply continue to cause your siding to deteriorate.

– Fungus and dry rot

Excessive moisture can also lead to the growth of fungus. One especially nasty kind of fungus, known as dry rot, will often eat away at the body of your house before it becomes visible on your siding. If you notice any of the others signs listed above, then you should definitely consider having your siding inspected for dry rot as well.
