It is not hard for any homeowner to determine whether there might be a siding mold problem with exterior wall siding that must be addressed. Here are some of the most important signs that indicate your home's siding may need to be replaced:

  • Home frequently needs painting
  • Big utility bills
  • Warped or rotted siding
  • Siding mold, fungus, or mildew
  • Holes are in siding
  • Home Frequently Needs Painting

When a home's siding is in trouble, you will find the need to repaint it very regularly. Good siding keeps it's color and shape for a good 10 years and sometimes quite longer. If you need to paint every 5 years, you need new siding.

Big Utility Bills

If your cooling or heating costs for your home are very high, your house siding is failing its most-basic purpose: to prevent leaks of every type: rain, snow, heating and cooling. The first thing to check if your utility bills are too high is to make sure your roof or insulation is not the problem. If not, your exterior wall insulating factor is way too low.
