3 Potential Risks of Delaying a Siding Replacement

The protection that siding provides to your home is easy to overlook. However, siding plays an integral role in keeping your home structurally sound and looking its best. So, when your siding begins to fail, delaying replacement leaves your home vulnerable to potential risks.

1. Structural Damage 

Delaying replacement when your siding is damaged or deteriorating can lead to more extensive structural problems. Moisture, pests, and other environmental factors can penetrate the already compromised siding, causing further damage to the underlying wood or insulation. This can result in costly repairs or even compromise the integrity of your home’s structure over time.

2. Poor Climate Control 

Older or damaged siding may no longer provide proper insulation, leading to decreased energy efficiency in your home. This can result in higher heating and cooling bills as your HVAC system has to work harder to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Delaying siding replacement means you’re prolonging the period during which your home’s energy efficiency is compromised.

3. Lower Property Values

The exterior appearance of your home plays a significant role in its overall curb appeal and market value. Delaying siding replacement can lead to a worn-out, weathered, or dated appearance, which can reduce your home’s overall value to potential buyers.
