Wind, rain, hail, and normal wear and tear take a large toll on the exterior of a home over time. Has your home found itself the victim of the elements? This is a common problem for many Colorado home owners. The materials commonly found in siding include aluminum, wood, and vinyl; all materials that can easily be damaged and find themselves in need of a repair.
Other than your home presenting a lackluster appearance, damaged siding can also come at the cost of water damage to the interior of the home. A home’s siding functions to protect the interior of a home much like the skin functions to protect the human body, making this an important investment for your home!
Why Siding Replacement is a Great Option
One reason siding replacement is a great option is because it is rare that the entirety of a home’s siding will become damaged. It is often one small piece or section that becomes damaged from animals, gravel, or inclement weather. Thus, it makes much more sense to replace the damaged section instead of the entire house.
In years past, it was commonly believed that a small damaged area warranted an entire replacement. This clever marketing scheme made a simple piece of damage a major expense for the homeowner. Most people were not aware of any other alternative, thus falling into the trap of having all the siding replaced.
If you find yourself with a contained area of damage, it would be wise to consider repairing the damaged section instead of paying thousands of dollars to replace everything, when most of the home still has perfectly good siding. This not only will help cut costs for you, but it is also eco-friendly! We all wish there was a way to reduce the amount of refuse going into landfills. Siding repair is a great way to ensure you are doing your part reduce waste! The experienced professionals at Colorado siding repair have the tools, skills, and knowledge to repair the damaged siding on your home!
Avoiding Full Replacement
Many homeowners may face circumstances where due to high Colorado winds, a piece or two of their siding is blown off, never to be found again. This allows the elements to be privy to destroying the exposed wood structure and even allows rain to seep behind the other siding. This common scenario can raise the stress levels in many home owners, but with the option of siding replacement, for a fraction of the cost, this small area can be replaced without residing the entire home.
Be sure to give partial replacement a chance, don’t fall for the common sales pitch that siding or soffits can not be matched, but must be replaced. In many cases, the siding can be matched or recreated to save you money!
A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned
For many people the unexpected expense of property damage can cut deeply into the family budget. In order to pay for siding replacement, many Americans will need to sacrifice needed items or vacations. Instead of wasting your precious hard-earned dollars, consider a partial repair. You decide what you will do with the money saved.
