Whoops! Whether it’s your kid’s new archery hobby or your beloved pet’s rough behavior, your home’s siding can really take a beating. If it’s starting to look less than lovely, however, that doesn’t mean you need to deal with the inconvenience of entirely replacing your siding for a few problem areas. Siding repair can go a long way to fixing the problem, giving you a longer timeframe before you need to worry about a replacement.
Avoid a Complete Replacement With Siding Repair
There are any number of reasons why you may need to have your siding repaired. Heavy hail can punch a hole through your siding. High winds or storms can pull loose siding away from its attachment points. Scratches from kids, dogs or wildlife can leave unsightly marks in your siding. However, these issues don’t necessarily require the replacement of all of your siding to fix the problem areas.
In some circumstances, the siding can be re-installed, if it has not been otherwise damaged, such as when it is pulled away because of a storm. If the siding has been damaged on the facing surface, it may require that a new piece or two be installed. In many cases, this can be accomplished by using leftover material from the initial project or by reordering the materials in the appropriate color from the manufacturer, though in non-premium brands, this may result in a slight difference in color due to fading in the existing pieces caused by sunlight as compared to the replacement piece.
The Importance of Investing in High-Quality Siding Materials
Of course, when you have high-quality materials installed properly from the start, you’re less likely to see as much damage to begin with. In areas where damage may be expected, foam-backed siding provides additional support to the siding face when you expect it to receive an impact, such as from a ball or other object. Materials from a quality manufacturer make it much easier to get replacement pieces that will match your home, with fewer issues from fading.
