Essential Siding Considerations for Fall

Summer is coming to an end and fall is just around the corner. With autumn comes strong winds, falling leaves, damaging rain and sometimes even sleet. Many homes sustain siding damage during the cooler months, especially if they have older, damaged or affected siding. At Eastern Roofing & Siding we specialize in siding for Cottage Grove and the surrounding areas, and we have a few suggestions if you’ve noticed your home’s siding is damaged.

Siding is your first line of defense against the elements so it is important to know the signs that indicate it could use repair or replacement. How often do you have to have your home’s siding repainted? If it’s every five to six years, then you should consider calling a siding contractor like us to replace it. Siding that is still in good shape should keep its color for at least eight to ten years. If the paint on your siding is peeling, flaking or chipping away, give us a call.

Do you notice mold or mildew? This could be another indication that your siding has been damaged. After a storm has rolled through the area, you should immediately assess the damage. Simply walk around your home exterior once it is safe and check for signs that your roofing or siding has been affected. Also check inside for any leaks or water spots in the interior’s ceilings and walls.
