Outside: Summer While siding is designed to last decades, due to the wear-and-tear of the seasons, siding does get old and might need repairs or replacement. Considering the average home in the United States is 35 years old, it might be time to start paying closer attention to your siding. Mario Brothers Home Improvement has these tips to help you stay on top of the siding needs so you know when it needs to be replaced or repaired: Color has faded – Faded coloring means the siding is nearing the end of its life and might not be protecting the house as well as it should. Skyrocketing Utility Bills – Heating and cooling bills going up may indicate a siding issue. Loose Wallpaper – This could indicate that moisture and humidity are finding ways into your home from bad siding. Dry Rot or Insect/Animal Nest – Especially in wood sidings, you should consider repairing the siding sooner rather than later. Water Damage / Structural Damage – If you notice water damage or structural faults, this may be due to faulty siding. Mildew/Rust/Fungus – If your siding is new and you notice these issues, the siding needs to be repaired. Severe Storms – Anything from cracks to chips, blown off siding or tiles missing and more will require some repair work.
