Common Wood Siding DamageHomes with new growth cedar or raw wood siding don't last as long, especially in a climate known around the world for its rainfall and sunless days. Power washing and re-applying wood stain is a constant maintenance process. And when cedarwood or T1-11 siding becomes rotten, the once-solid wood can crumble under the slightest touch.
- Cracked or split boards
- Dry rot
- Faded color
- Moss growth
- Bug infestations
Common Vinyl Siding DamageVinyl siding can be a great choice for budget-minded homeowners who want to save on maintenance, exterior painting, and installation costs. However, vinyl siding can have its flaws: it dents easily, changes its shape in certain weather, and doesn't insulate a home as well as composite or wood siding.
Repairing Wood SidingComposite siding lasts for decades, while less-durable types of siding, such as vinyl, aren't as easy to repair. Wood siding, like T1-11, can be patched and made to look like new. Damage to T1-11 siding is most commonly spotted early when the damage is minimal. To determine if your cedar or T1-11 siding can be patched, we inspect:
- Check to see if the wood is soft or rotten
- the base of your siding
- the sub wall underneath
- the areas around your window
