Siding FAQs for Homeowners
Repairing or replacing siding is one of many homeowners’ biggest investments.
It’s not cheap, so understandably, many are hesitant to pursue the project.
As one of Sacramento’s oldest home improvement companies, we’ve faced a lot of inquiries about siding over the years.
Here are some of the most FAQs from Sacramento Homeowners
What are the signs of siding damage?
Siding serves as a barrier between your wall and excess moisture and humidity from the outdoors. When your siding is damaged, it allows extra water and humidity to seep through the pores on your wall.
As such, siding damage usually manifests through the following indoors: blisters on walls, water marks, and peeling paint. Outside, you can check for the following signs: rotted boards and missing or cracked panels.
For a more thorough checkup, you can call our siding experts to check home for more signs of siding damage.
How soon do I have to get the damages fixed?
As one of the most seasoned siding contractors in Sacramento, we advocate fixing siding damage immediately.
Forgoing repairs can result in irreparable and more expensive work. In many cases, what could have been a simple repair of a few boards ended up as a full siding replacement project due to delay.
Can I change the current siding of my home?
There are many factors that must be considered if you want to change the siding on your home. Full re-siding can be expensive so doing it merely for cosmetic purposes is not advisable.
There are also code regulations to consider, particularly if your home is in a historic district in Sacramento. Homes in historic districts are often not allowed to drastically alter the exterior of their homes, a category under which siding replacement falls.
It’s best to confirm with the Community Development Department. If there are no code restrictions, you can re-side your home with the material of your choice.
What are my siding options?
If you are replacing your current siding, you can choose from wood, fiber cement, and vinyl. You can also opt for metal if you want.
