If your home is requiring extensive maintenance, has loose or missing siding, signs of pest damage, or color fading – it may be time to replace the siding. Also, any signs of buckling, cracking, warping, sagging, rotting, or blistering on the siding are signs of needed replacement. 

Will replacing the siding affect the interior of my home?

Other than some noise during the installation process, siding installation will not get in the way of your daily life on the interior of your home.
