At Elite Home Exteriors NW, we’ve made siding repair in Clackamas our calling. Call our exterior siding contractors and siding repair professionals, and we’ll inspect your property and determine the best way to fix damages to your siding and more.
Every fifteen to twenty years, siding should be replaced. Between that time, the structural soundness of an exterior depends greatly on how the siding performs in a certain climate. In the Clackamas, where annual rainfall averages about 40 inches a year, wood siding doesn’t last as long as other, industry-leading siding materials.
Exterior Siding Repair Inspections
Our inspectors have the industry knowledge and experience working on homes in the Northwest to look for siding deterioration and damage. Common problems our exterior Contractors see almost every day on the job include:
- Cracked boards
- Rotten trim, soffits, and fascia boards
- Rot along the bottom of wood siding
- Insect infestations like termites
- Rot and other sub wall damage
No matter what the problems are, the professionals at Elite Home Exteriors NW have the solutions for long-term and cost-effective siding. Whether you have cement composite siding or T1-11, we’ll outfit your home with a solid barrier against the wind, rain, hail, and other forces of nature.
Homeowners who choose natural wood siding often use raw cedar wood for their siding. Old-growth cedar, which has excellent water-resistance and durability, is no longer used for building materials. New-growth cedar, however, works well and, with proper maintenance, can last a long time. T1-11 siding is another type of wood siding that is affordable, but less durable.
Having this type of siding in a damp and cool climate like Clackamas has its disadvantages. However, the pros at Elite Home Exteriors NW not only provide maintenance services but can also make partial repairs to extend the life of your wood siding.
Like T1-11 siding, vinyl siding can be a great choice for budget-minded homeowners. Vinyl siding can come in different colors and designs and is one of the most affordable options for siding. Like wood siding, however, vinyl is also prone to damage since it is less solid than composite cement or wood alternatives. Vinyl isn’t a breathable material like wood or cement composite, which can lead to rot underneath when moisture becomes trapped within the vinyl siding.
Most often, when your home exterior is showing even the smallest indication of damage or rot, there are more problems beneath the surface. A complete tear-off and replacement of old siding become a necessity–especially if you intend to sell your home soon.
At Elite Home Exteriors NW, we install every type of industry-leading siding. If you want Owens Corning, HardiePlank, or any other big name in the industry, we will make it happen. Our contractors specialize in all projects that have to do with exterior repair, installation, and maintenance.
