From Shingles to Rubber

How many different kinds of roofs can you spot on the houses on your street? A few decades ago, you may have only seen shingle roofs, perhaps with the occasional slate roof mixed in. But these days, there are more kinds of roofing on the market. Metal roofs are becoming common because they can be made from recycled materials. Tile is a popular choice because it lasts a lot longer than other roofing materials. And then there are some roofers who install rubber roofs because they're smooth and easy to install.

The Biggest Signs That Your Sidings May Need Replacement

Your siding is a very important protective mechanism against the elements. It will also protect your home from small insects that may try to get inside your home. However, there are times when your siding will start to fall apart. 

Once it starts deteriorating it is time to have it fixed or replaced. If you have been on the fence about whether or not you should call in a professional. Here are some of the main signs that you should get help.

If your siding is cracked, then it is usually a sign that you need to get it replaced. Cracking is usually accompanied by sagging. Once the water is able to get through the panels, rotting and decay are inevitable.

Act quickly when you notice these signs and get your siding replaced, otherwise it will only get worse with time.

Storm Damage Is Present

Damage from a thunderstorm can severely impact your siding. If a storm has passed through your area you may notice that small pieces of your siding have been removed and other pieces left intact. You will need a professional to come and have a look, to determine whether or not you need to completely replace the siding or if it can be repaired. 

Aside from thunderstorms, hailstorms can leave several dents and holes in your siding. When this happens the siding may need replacement.

Peeling Paint

If the paint has started peeling from your siding then there may be some damage happening beneath the surface. It may be that your sidings are now receiving poor ventilation, or there has been moisture damage.
