Damaged Exterior Siding Can Be More Than an Eyesore for Killeen, TX, Homeowners
If the exterior siding on your Killeen, Texas, home, is damaged, ignoring it can lead to big problems in a relatively short time. Since siding is your residence’s primary line of defense against the elements, even a small chink in this armor can allow moisture infiltration. When support structures are exposed to dampness on a regular basis, rot can set in very quickly. Six months is plenty of time for fungus (which is the true cause of wood rot) to spread from the breach and damage a large section of underlay.
At Woodbridge Home Exteriors, we hate unpleasant surprises as much as you do. That’s why we encourage Killeen, TX, homeowners to regularly inspect their exterior siding for indications of damage. A few of the more common signs include:
- Warped, cracked, or pitted panels – The most obvious indicators of degraded exterior siding are the ones that are easily visible. If your cladding has gaps, don’t put off a repair.
- Faded siding – Although color fading alone isn’t necessarily a sign of damaged siding, it is an indication of age, which means your cladding could be nearing or past its life expectancy. Older siding needs to be inspected more often (every few months) to ensure it’s still fully intact.
- Peeling interior paint or wallpaper – This is a less obvious sign of exterior siding degradation, but when paint and wallpaper begin to bubble and peel, it could mean moisture has seeped through the walls enough to saturate the inside surface.
