Greensboro Siding Repairs
At Gio's Pro Painting, we always try to offer siding repairs versus replacement, for our Greensboro customers. In fact, we cannot even provide one of our most popular services, exterior painting, without first addressing the need for repairs.
Part of the responsibility that comes along with being a professional painting company is first expertly preparing the surface. And one of those important tasks is siding repairs.
What homeowners tend to overlook is the fact that siding is more than just something intended to make your house look its very best. You are picking out a high-quality siding material when you are having your home built because this is what acts as a protective outer shell, safeguarding your home from the elements.
Greensboro Siding Repairs or Replacement?
It is important to know the truth – do you need siding repairs or replacement? A less honest contractor may try to convince you that you need replacement, because it can earn them more money.
However, if your so-called pro misses the fact that you need replacement, you could end up paying for repairs and painting only to find out quickly that replacement is necessary.
- It can depend greatly on the type of siding that you have. There are a number of different materials used for siding, anything from vinyl to cedar. The type of material you have will dictate the types of repairs you need, as well as how soon you may need replacement. Know more about the life expectancy of your siding material, before you even have it installed. In many cases, this may become a deciding factor on the type of material you get.
- One of the benefits of vinyl siding is that it does not require much maintenance; simply have it power washed occasionally and make certain that you do not have neglected repair needs. That being said, one of the downfalls of vinyl is that it is more likely to crack because it is more brittle.
- A benefit of some types of siding materials, such as aluminum and vinyl, is that it is possible to replace just the damaged pieces. However, this is not a long-term solution. Over time, you will need to replace all of the siding in order to prevent frequent repair needs. Plus, once the sun begins to fade the siding, it makes replacement pieces that much more obvious.
- Rot and major structural issues are usually the only circumstances in which replacement is necessary instead of repairs. Do not let anyone convince you that repairs will suffice in these situations. However, if enough time has passed, the condition of your siding will be compromised and you should opt for replacement.
