Vinyl siding is chosen by many homeowners and home builders because of its versatility and durability. In the right conditions, vinyl siding can last for over fifty years. However, there are occasions when it may need to be replaced. Here are a few key signs that you need to replace your vinyl siding:

1.    Cracks – Your siding’s main purpose is to protect your home from outside elements such as water, insects, and more. If your siding has several cracks or gaps, the structural integrity of your home can be compromised. Moisture can enter, causing extensive damage.

2.    Moisture or mold inside your home – If you find moisture inside your home, it’s a good idea to check the exterior of the same area. If it appears that the siding is damaged, you’ll want to replace it right away before any more interior damage occurs.

3.    Poor efficiency – If you can feel drafts near outlets, plugs, or walls, you may have inefficient vinyl siding. You can get improved energy savings by selecting a vinyl siding material with better energy ratings.

4.    Aesthetic update – If you want to make a change for aesthetic purposes, you’re sure to find vinyl siding that fits your unique style, while also offering greater protection and energy efficiency for your home.
