When to Replace Your Siding: Key Indicators

Aesthetic Reasons

Outdated siding can make your home look old and reduce its curb appeal. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 74% of homeowners undertake projects to improve their home’s appearance. New siding can also increase your home’s resale value by about 75% of the project cost, as reported by Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report.

Damage and Deterioration

Cracks, warping, holes, mold, mildew, and rot are clear indicators that your siding needs replacement. Approximately 20% of homeowners replace their siding due to visible damage, and 30% do so because of moisture problems, as noted in a HomeAdvisor survey.

Energy Efficiency

Old or damaged siding can lead to drafts and inconsistent indoor temperatures, increasing your energy bills. Replacing siding can improve insulation and reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 15%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

High Maintenance Costs

If your current siding requires frequent repairs and repainting, it might be more cost-effective to replace it. The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) suggests that homeowners replace siding when maintenance costs become excessive.
