Cincinnati Lumber Pros Share 3 Signs You Need to Have Your Siding Replaced, Norwood, Ohio

In some cases, it's obvious when a home needs new siding. In others, the telltale signs of disrepair are more subtle. Either way, siding is a vital part of any home's exterior. Old, ineffective siding can not only sully the curb appeal of any home, but it can also compromise its ability to protect inhabitants from the elements. Huber Lumber, lumber professionals based in Cincinnati, OH, shares the three biggest signs your home is in need of siding replacement.

Top 3 Signs You Need New Siding

1. Faded Color

If you've had the same siding for years and the color has begun to fade, it may be time for a replacement. Siding leeched of color can be an eyesore and pull down the value of your home. You don't want it to be conspicuously lacking in color for very long. 

2. Decomposition

lumberWood siding is susceptible to rot, and with enough time and lack of maintenance, decomposition can set in. If your shingles are soft, porous, or generally look like they're rotting away, you’ll want to consider a replacement. While a full siding replacement is generally the way to go, it becomes especially true if decomposition is widespread on the house. 

3. Cracking

When siding gets cracked, it can jeopardize the safety and integrity of the entire home. Siding is the outer shell of a house and serves as its first and most important layer of protection against rain, snow, wind, and other forces of nature. When cracks are large enough, they'll allow rainwater to seep into your home, causing leaks, interior rot, and even structural damage.

Huber Lumber offers high-grade lumber, windows and doors, and other building supplies at fair prices to individuals and businesses throughout Greater Cincinnati. Their experience and connections in the Cincinnati construction business make them an excellent choice to get any major project started.
