Your siding is usually the only thing standing between the elements outside and your interior drywall and insulation. Each board works together as a complete system with nails, caulk, and a painted finish to keep out moisture and protect your home.
Homeowners have several siding options available today.
Angie's List, the nation's leading provider of consumer reviews, asked highly rated contractors about siding and painting options.
Often, homeowners can't tell how much hidden damage has occurred until the siding is physically removed so they are able to see how much wood rot exists on the frame of their home due to years of moisture penetration behind the siding.
Walk around your house and look for these signs that your siding may need repaired/replaced.
