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.

When your home’s exterior needs to have an update to its appearance, replacing the siding can be a great way to make a change quickly and inexpensively. Developed in a wide range of options than have ever been available in the past, you can now use vinyl siding to reflect a wide range of architectural styles and appearances. Here’s a quick look at what options you have available and how the process works.
Update Your Home’s Appearance with Quality Vinyl Siding
Let’s start by talking about the many different styles that are now available. Unlike the simple clapboards of the past, you can now get vinyl siding in styles including shakes, batten board and chamfer board, opening up a whole new world of possiblities. A wide range of colors are available from most manufacturers, including rich browns, cool blues and vibrant reds.
Unlike past versions of the product, today’s vinyl siding has a range of UV inhibitors, which prevents fading and oxidation. This means that your house will look just as fabulous five years from now as it does today. This also makes it very easy to replace a damaged piece of siding without having it stand out with a deeper color than the surrounding vinyl. Foam-backed siding options provide you with a small increase in your home’s R-value, while standing up better to impacts from balls, shoes or whatever nature will throw at it.
Learn More About the Siding Installation Process
The installation process is fairly simple. A guide piece is
placed on one end of the installation, then the siding is snapped into place.
Once a row is entirely secured at the edge, it’s then nailed down securely into
your home’s exterior wall. The next piece is snapped into that one, and this
process continues until your home’s new siding is completely installed.
