The Effects of At-Home Fireworks on Siding and What to Do If You Have Damage

People love fireworks. The beautiful colors that light up the sky and create a sense of awe and wonder. The trouble is, however, that many take fireworks into their own hands and buy the at-home versions to set off in their driveways. While this is not a big deal in itself, a lot of homeowners are not as careful as they should be, and if they stand too close to their homes, they might accidentally have a negative impact on the siding of their houses. Understanding the risks of fireworks and being extra careful can save you a lot of time, money, and stress. 

So, how can fireworks damage siding? Let’s take a look:

  1. Heat and Flame Exposure: Fireworks produce high temperatures. If they are set off too close to your home, they can pose a fire risk. On a smaller scale, they can melt and warp the material of your siding and can leave scorch marks behind.
  2. Debris Impact: Firework debris can strike your home with quite a bit of force. This can cause dents, chipping, and much more. 
  3. Chemical Staining: Fireworks are made up of a lot of chemicals, and these can cause discoloration when they come in contact with your siding. The stains left behind can be difficult or even impossible to remove, leaving behind permanent marks.
