Need Siding Repair? Let Harmony Home Improvement Help
We Can Assess & Repair Damage
We all know that siding is one of the best ways to protect a home against extreme temperatures and weather, but what happens when a portion of siding becomes blemished or damaged? Unless your home’s siding has sustained widespread damage, you can probably get away with making a simple repair. Let’s take a look at some of the siding issues that homeowners frequently face, and how best to remedy these situations.
Common Siding Problems
As with most exterior components, some normal wear and tear to siding can be expected over time. You might notice imperfections or damages associated with:
- Small splits and cracks due to weathering.
- Small holes from fasteners, phone lines, cable lines, etc.
- Small dents from hail, windblown debris or everyday wear.
- Minor rot.
Assessing the Damage
Once a problem is noticed, it is important to assess the level of damage. You may be able to address very small blemishes on your own, but larger issues generally require professional assistance. If an entire panel is stripped from your home during a windstorm or a sizable area of rot is discovered, you would be best served by contacting Harmony Home Improvement. We can conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the damage and determine whether the siding should be replaced or if a siding repair job will suffice.
Always take the time to clean siding that needs attention before attempting to fix the issue. To fill small cracks, holes and tears, use a good epoxy and some touch-up paint that matches your current siding. Small dents can be filled in with putty, sanded smooth and touched up with matching paint. Generally, rotted areas should be evaluated and addressed by a professional. To avoid rot, especially on sidewalls where a roof abuts a wall, insist on the proper installation of a good metal flashing.
