Hello, and welcome back to our blog here at DJK Siding. This is part two of our blog series about repairing or replacing your commercial siding. In our last blog, we took a look at when you should be replacing your siding. Rot, costly repairs, sun fading, and age all top this list because they lead to permanent damage. In this blog, we’ll discuss when repairing will be the best for your siding. As usual, you should contact a dependable siding expert before making any final decisions.
As the siding industry has grown and begun to develop more durable and appealing siding materials, people have also developed better repair techniques and products that help preserve siding as long as possible. Siding repair can often be done for relatively cheap depending on the type of issue you’re experiencing and its severity. Read below to learn about some of the situations where you may want to repair your siding. It’s always best to have a professional siding specialist take a look at your siding to see if repairs are an option.
Chips or cracks – Minor signs of wear or damage can typically be repaired relatively easily, especially if it only affects a small area like a panel or two. If the siding can’t be repaired by other means, your siding contractor can replace a single panel.
Mold – In most cases, damage caused by mold can be repaired. However, there are several things you should keep in mind if you find mold under or around your siding. First of all, you should find out why there was mold near or on your siding, and if the issue will persist. Mold only grows in damp, warm areas, so if this issue persists, it could cause permanent damage to your siding. Second of all, you should make sure that all the mold is removed. Not only will the dampness cause damage to your siding, but the mold will damage it as well.
Dents – It’s not uncommon to find dents in your siding. This typically happens as a result of hail or warping. As long as the dents aren’t spread across the entire building, you can have a couple panels replaced and go on your way.
Loose panels – Loose siding panels are usually nothing to worry about. Sometimes if siding is installed incorrectly, it will become loose. Or, if you’ve had a storm come through your area, the wind could have loosened up your siding. Although it’s important to call a siding contractor to get this fixed, it’s nothing to panic about.
