Traverse City Roofing, a company based in Traverse City, MI, wants homeowners and other property owners to know that aside from the various roofing services, they can also provide siding repair or installation. They can offer this service for both vinyl and wood sidings. Just like the roof, the siding plays an important role, which is to shield the home and insulate it from the harsh elements of the weather. It is designed to prevent dirt, insects and moisture from getting inside the walls. Its main purpose is to protect the home, including its contents from the wind, snow, rain, and other strong weather elements.
Just like with the roof, if the siding is damaged, water can get inside the home. It can also get trapped inside wooden walls and can result into mold growth, rotting wood, and other kinds of interior damage. This can weaken the walls and result into more serious problems in the long run. It can also result into the reduction of the insulation of the walls of the home, which means higher energy bills.
There are a number of indications that a new siding may be required for a particular home. For instance, homeowners may notice some warping in the old siding, or some of the sidings may be starting to bend and pull away from the surface. These are actually hints that water and moisture have been able to get behind and underneath the sidings. Other signs of water getting through are peeling paint and sagging and loose wallpaper in a room. There may also be some black or green spots on the siding. Homeowners can check for indications of rotting boards by feeling along the siding to find out if there any locations where the siding gives in slightly.
According to TC Roofing, vinyl siding is more durable compared to wood and vinyl sidings can last for decades as long as they are cleaned and maintained properly and regularly. Signs of damage to vinyl siding are holes, chips, or dents. There can also be cracked or loose vinyl sidings. These cracks, holes, and gaps underneath the vinyl sidings can allow rainwater to pass through and get inside the home. Therefore, these are signs that the vinyl sidings need to be replaced.
Meanwhile, some homeowners prefer wood siding because it offers a more natural look. Traverse City Roofing can also provide wood siding repairs, installation and replacement services. Wood siding continues to be an attractive choice for homeowners because it is an attractive and natural material. Wood siding can also last for decades as long it is properly maintained.
The reason wood clapboard siding remains popular despite the superior durability of vinyl sidings is because wood sidings are unmatched when it comes to appearance. However, wood clapboard siding will require more detailed maintenance compared to vinyl. And for those who want an inviting and warm look for the home, cedar shake siding would be the best choice. It is 50 percent less likely to warp compared to other wood sidings and it is also more durable.
