Benefits of New Siding Installation
There are many benefits to being proactive about new siding installation. While we appreciate the desire to maximize the life of your current siding, many overlook the long-term energy savings that are inherent to new siding. It’s also an opportunity to identify and repair any unseen damage, and there may be more than you suspect if your siding is many decades old. New siding requires a lot less maintenance, and even fiber cement won’t need a fresh coat of paint for another decade. It also enhances your curb appeal, and it can add real value to the property overall.
Common Signs it’s Time for New Siding
Siding often lasts for 50 years or more, and that long life can make it difficult for a homeowner or business owner to decide when to schedule new siding installation. Tycos recommends not trying to maximize the life of your siding but rather beginning to consider siding replacement as you near the end of the expected lifespan and to look for the telltale signs that it may be time to replace it. If you’re still unsure, call the team at Tycos. We’ll come out to your home or business, conduct a thorough evaluation of your siding, and provide you with our honest and professional recommendation.
Mold, mildew, algae, and rot
Light growth can often be washed away. But if the growth is invasive enough, it will undermine the siding materials and eventually lead to rot. Decaying siding attracts pests and also allows moisture to reach the underlying structure where it can do serious damage.
Cracks, gaps, and other imperfections
Cracks and gaps present similar problems in that they allow water and pest infiltration. Such damage can be caused by hail and other bad storms, but it can also develop over time and will lead to substantial deterioration if not corrected.
Bubbling, blistering, peeling, and fading
Sunlight and wind will do a number on your siding over time. Depending on which siding you have, this may just be a sign that it’s time to repaint. But if the deterioration demands a lot of prep or you have vinyl, it may be better to go ahead and replace it.
Too much maintenance
All siding will require some maintenance over the years, and that upkeep will help to extend its lifespan. But that maintenance should be relatively infrequent. If you find that maintaining your siding has become a monthly project, that may be a sign it’s time to replace it.
High energy bills
Many homeowners and business owners are unaware that their siding plays an integral role in the energy efficiency of their buildings. If your bills have spiked and you’ve ruled out the equipment and the interior insulation, then your siding may be the culprit.
Types of Siding Materials We Work With
Tycos is among the top side installation companies in the Delaware Valley, and we thus have specialists for all of the siding materials prevalent in the region for residential and commercial applications. Our crews install both fiber cement and vinyl, and we can remove stucco, wood, metal, composite, and more.
Vinyl siding continues to be a popular option for modern homes and businesses due to the sheer value it delivers. But vinyl siding is also beautiful and available in a wide range of colors, textures, styles, and so forth.
Fiber cement has become the most requested new type of siding. It provides homes with a traditional and handsome aesthetic while also being very durable and requiring little maintenance. We work with James Hardie siding products.
Stucco siding is no longer popular and can make a home look out of date. Tycos can remove and replace that old siding in a manner that beautifies your home and also protects it for many decades to come.
Tycos Siding Repair Professionals
New siding installation may not be your only option to achieve optimal and uniform siding. It generally comes down to the age of the current siding and the extent of the underlying problems. If your siding is a couple of decades-old but has an expected life of 50 years or more, then repair may be the best way forward. Our team can remove all of the compromised sections and replace them with similar materials that match the existing siding and depending on the material, you can then repaint to achieve a uniform look. If we recommend siding repair to you rather than replacement, know that when we are finished, you won’t be able to tell where the old siding ends and the new siding begins.
