The Importance of Proper Siding in the Winter

If you live in Pennsylvania, or other areas that experience intense cold during the winter, it is important to make sure your siding  is in good condition. When siding needs to be repaired, it is not able to properly do its job, and this can negatively impact you and your home in a multitude of ways. 

Siding protects your home from the elements, keeping it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Without proper siding, you will not have proper insulation. This can result in extreme temperatures in your home, forcing you to have to crank the heat and air conditioning. In areas that fluctuate in temperature, such as Pennsylvania, damaged siding often causes one to have to use more energy. More energy equals higher costs, and we bet that you will want to avoid having to pay those higher costs if possible. 

Your siding is also meant to protect your home from leaks. Damaged siding may not keep water from seeping through, allowing liquid to come into your home. Not only does this result in leaks, but liquid that is trapped can cause further damage to a home’s structure. In addition, water that sits can turn into mold and mildew.

Replacing and repairing siding is important to keep your home in the best condition and to ensure that you are saving on energy costs. The longer you wait to update siding, the more damage you can end up with, and the more it will cost you in the long run. If you suspect you might have damage to your siding, it is important to have it looked at as soon as possible. We always offer free inspections, so give us a call if you need your siding checked.
