The colder months can be hard on different parts of your home’s exterior, including the siding. It doesn’t matter what kind of damage your siding has, you must have it repaired immediately. Keep in mind that delaying repairs will only cause the problem to become worse.

Signs of Siding Damage to Look Out for as Winter Ends

Loose or Missing Sections

High winds during winter storms can break and loosen siding panels, which exposes your home’s exterior walls to harsh outdoor elements. Poor installation can make your siding more prone to this problem, but it could also occur due to regular wear and tear. If you notice this issue, be sure to contact a local professional as soon as you can.


Too much moisture exposure can result in rot, especially in wood siding. When not addressed properly, the rot will spread and turn into costly repairs. You can avoid this problem with priming, painting and proper installation.

Cracks, Holes and Dents

Extreme temperature changes can cause cracks and breakage in your siding. If your siding has this kind of damage, you may need an immediate replacement. Replacing your siding ASAP will help you avoid costly water damage and higher energy bills. Holes and dents are also things you should look out for because they are more likely to occur in vinyl and aluminum siding.
