Signs It’s Time to Change Your Siding
So what indicates that it’s time for your siding to be changed? Here are some reasons why it’s time to take this step:
- When you are continually painting your sidings, and it peels or cracks fast. The painting should have a duration of up to 8 to 10 years, so when your siding lasts no longer than five years, it’s a sign that you need new siding.
- When you find mold, mildew, or fungus, in the seam of your house, it indicates that water is penetrating and getting trapped inside the wall. Hence, a change of your siding is by then an urgent need to prevent any more damage.
- When your energy bill is higher than usual, one of the significant characteristics of sidings is that it is very efficient in energy-saving. It provides you warmth during winter and keeps your house fresh in the summer. If your bill is high for some unknown reason, your siding may require replacing.
- If you find holes in your siding, even if they are small, this could mean insects might be entering. These holes can cause water filtering and, therefore, considerable damage in the short term.
If you are not entirely sure that your siding needs to be changed, have us inspect it. We will advise you on what to do best. Whatever the outcome after we make the inspection, do not worry, we have everything needed to fix it.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know when I need a new roof?
An interior leak or ceiling stain would be the first immediate sign that you may need a new roof. If you find shingles or pieces of shingles in your yard when walking around your house, that could mean that your roof has been compromised by wind damage.
Will my insurance company help me pay for a new roof?
This depends on the extent of damage and proper representation. Hail damage may constitute monetary assistance on replacing a roof but it is rarely seen from the ground. This is why proper representation is crucial. Our Claims Specialist can come out and access your roof and help you determine your options.
How do I know if my roof is properly ventilated?
Improper ventilation can cause heat pockets, which may accelerate the deterioration of the shingles. Shingles will start to lose their grit/surface coating, causing color loss. The shingles will start to curl at the edges. Proper ventilation depends on the size of the roof and the design. To prolong the life of the shingles, always have a roofing expert make recommendations according to your specific roof system.
How long will a new roof last?
Asphalt shingle manufacturers usually have 20-30 year shingles. Proper ventilation as mentioned above can help extend the life of the shingle. Most shingle manufacturers offer limited lifetime warranties with the option to purchase extended warranties. Many roofs need to be replaced before the 20+ year mark in Tennessee due to the extreme temps and improper ventilation or storm damage.
