Signs It’s Time to Replace Your House’s Siding

Jan 22, 2024

Siding makes up a large portion of your home’s exterior and plays a huge role in protecting it from the elements. If you’ve started to notice some signs that it’s time to replace your house’s siding, have no fear—the expert team at Pure Home Restoration, Minnesota’s leading siding company, is here to guide you through the process. In this article, we’ll answer commonly asked questions about the signs you need new siding, the installation process, and product options for your siding replacement.

The Signs Your Home Needs New Siding

Homeowners should examine the exterior of their homes periodically for visible signs of damage. Here are a few signs that it’s time for a siding replacement:

Fading Colors and Peeling Paint

Over time, the vibrant colors of your house siding can fade due to exposure to the elements. Similarly, the paint can begin to chip or peel. Consider opting for a fresh, new look with our wide range of vinyl siding, steel siding, and engineered wood siding.

Warping or Rotting

Some types of siding—wood, especially—are susceptible to warping and rotting. If you see boards that are no longer straight or have soft spots, it’s time to consider a siding replacement. For those who like the look of wood siding but want something a little more durable, upgrading to engineered wood siding is a great solution.

High Energy Bills

Old or damaged siding can compromise your home’s insulation, leading to increased heating and cooling costs. If you’re looking for more energy-efficient options, you may want to explore insulated vinyl or steel siding.

Cracks and Holes

Visible cracks and holes in your siding are not just unsightly; they also allow moisture to seep through, potentially leading to structural damage. Invest in your home by choosing a durable siding material that resists cracks.

Enjoy Peace of Mind
 Pure Home Restoration replaced all of the windows on the north, east and west sides of my house including the picture window and sliding glass door in the kitchen. Don was great to work with. They took care of all of the claim/insurance company dealings which was very helpful. I haven't had to do much more than enjoy the new windows. 
 Don Darnell and the Pure Home team were incredibly professional and knowledgeable throughout our entire repair process. Don went above and beyond advocating for us with our insurance company. His attention to detail throughout the repair process was greatly appreciated which allowed for a seamless installation process. We would recommend Pure Home without hesitation and plan to work with them again if/when the need arises. 
 Pure Home was quick in responding to me, and worked directly with my insurance and mortgage companies to help guide me through the process of the claim. They had an onsite foreman each day to check the progress of both the roof and gutter replacements. They were professional and thorough.
