We specialize in commercial and residential roofing, but we also understand the importance of a complete and solid building envelope, and that includes you siding. When it storms in Colorado, make sure you check your siding for signs of damage.
Check for cracked or loose siding after big storms
Your siding should be able to stand up to most weather, but Colorado has been known to produce hail storms that can cause damage to roofing systems, gutters, windows, and siding. Even the toughest siding will take a beating from tangerine-sized hail being hurled from the sky.
Check for cracking exterior paint
If your exterior paint job is always peeling and cracking, it’s a sign that your siding could be damaged. If your home is shifting, causing your exterior paint (possibly even your interior paint job) to crack, have an inspection performed because the problem could be originating from another area of your home – like your foundation – and causing your siding to fail.
High energy bills
Old, worn, or damaged siding could be counteracting all of your heating and cooling efforts. Air leaks is a waste of energy so keep an eye on your energy bills. If they seem too high, the reason could be bad siding.
Check for moisture damage
Moisture is the biggest threat to any homeowner. Any signs of rot or mold should not be ignored. Damaged siding could be allowing moisture to penetrate your home, causing discoloration and signs or rotting materials.
