Siding Health Assessment

Look for Buckling
Look for buckling planks or lifting edges. This could be indicative of water damage.
Check the Seams
Look to see if the seams of your siding are matching up properly. If they have shifted, then you may have water damage.

Look for Missing Siding
Keep an eye out for missing siding as it will need to be replaced.

Types of Siding Damage
As you do your regular maintenance checks of your home or property, it’s helpful to know what types of siding damage are common and what conditions to be wary of.
Inclement weather is one of the biggest causes of siding damage. Snow and ice can cause water damage and can also cause warping. Wind can pull siding up or blow branches and debris into the siding of your home. This can cause holes and cracks. Two of the most dangerous types of damage are condensation and algae. Water damage can lead to structural damage that will be much more costly to repair.
