Each board of your siding contains caulk, nails and a painted finish to protect your interior drywall and insulation. Your siding needs to be in good condition to keep out moisture. Unfortunately, siding damage can be hard to spot.
Read on as A1 Siding and Roofing, the trusted siding contractor in the area, discusses the signs of siding damage.
Exposed, rusty or missing nail heads indicate that your siding has experienced movement. This might be because your siding has expanded or contracted due to temperature changes, causing the nails to pop out. Rusty nails indicate moisture damage; talk with your contractor to ascertain the culprit.
Your siding needs to be caulked at all vertical joints and seams. This caulk can slowly wear away, shrink or crack because of weather damage or just plain old age. If your siding no longer looks seamless, this indicates a problem. Look for signs of shifted seams or uneven boards, then call a siding installation expert like us for an inspection.
Water stains look like discoloration or streaking on the siding. If you see water stains that start and stop suddenly, then moisture might have entered the siding and damaged what’s underneath it. Since the siding covers up the damage, this damage is hard to spot and fix.
