Signs Your Siding Needs to Be Replaced

For minor issues, such a few loose panels or minor damage that is limited to one small area, siding repair may be enough. In other cases, your siding contractor will recommend a full siding replacement to avoid more costly damage in the future.

  • Do you have holes or dents in your siding?
  • Do you have multiple loose, cracked, or missing panels?
  • Is the color beginning to fade or peel?
  • Have you seen a significant increase in your energy bills for no apparent reason?
  • Have you noticed rotting or bubbling?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we recommend you schedule a free consultation with an IRC siding expert. Our company was built on honesty and integrity, so if it turns out you just need a repair, we won’t try to sell you on a full siding replacement. Instead, we will point you in the direction of a good, local siding repair company.

Which Type of Siding is Best for Your Home?

There are many types of siding to fit your needs and budget. We proudly install these replacement siding materials:

Vinyl Siding

If you have a limited budget, your best option is vinyl siding replacement. We also offer insulated vinyl siding, for those looking for ways to lower household energy bills. Because it is the most common siding material, there are plenty of color options. There are several styles available as well. On the down side, vinyl siding is the least durable.

Metal Siding

Metal siding is low-maintenance, eco-friendly, and fire-resistant. Aluminum siding is affordable and much more durable than vinyl siding. However, if you need to protect your home from storms, galvanized steel siding is a wise choice. Aluminum siding is likely to sustain damage from severe weather, such as dents from hail or fallen tree branches.

Wood Siding

If your top priority is increasing your curb appeal, wood siding will definitely do the trick. There are many styles available, but you may also want to look into natural wood siding vs manufactured wood siding. Though wood siding looks great, it is also more expensive and requires a lot more maintenance than other siding replacement options.

Popular Siding Styles & Designs

Once you’ve chosen your siding material, you’ll need to put some thought into your siding design. While your main focus is probably to increase aesthetic appeal, it’s also important to consider the color availability and function of each style . IRC home design consultants and local siding installers can help you beautify and protect your home with these popular siding designs:

Horizontal Siding

Also known as double four siding, this is the most common style. Traditional siding installation is most often used for inexpensive vinyl siding replacements.

Dutch Lap Siding

This unique, elegant siding design is embellished with a distinctive decorative groove. Equally important, dutch lap siding is still durable and energy efficient.

Vertical Siding

Vertical siding is often accented with another siding style, such as scallops or shakes, to create a completely unique look. Board and batten is the most popular vertical siding style.

Board and Batten Siding

This popular vertical siding style alternates between wider, inset panels and thick, narrow “battens.” Of course, it looks great, but it also creates wind resistance to protect your home from harsh weather.

Shake Siding

Charming and elegant on its own, shake siding can also compliment vertical or horizontal siding design. Cedar shake siding is the most popular, but we also offer budget friendly look-alike vinyl shake siding options.

Scalloped Siding

Bearing a lot of resemblance to shake siding, scalloped siding features a curved, shingle-like design. This style is the perfect compliment to a standard horizontal or vertical siding installation, but can also stand on its own.
