It can gradually wear out, or one or more sections can get damaged suddenly by a storm. If you notice any of these signs that your siding needs replacement, LaBrusciano Roofing & Exteriors can help.

Loose or Missing Shingles

Storms with strong winds can make sheets of siding come loose. In some cases, wind can even tear siding off a house. If your siding got damaged in a storm, simply replacing missing sections might not be enough to solve the problem. Your house might have already suffered moisture damage. Replacing the siding might be your best option.

Visible Damage

Siding is durable, but changing weather conditions can cause damage over time. If your siding has sections that are cracked, warped, rotting, buckling, or sagging, that’s more than just an aesthetic issue. It means the siding’s structural integrity has been compromised and it’s no longer capable of doing its job effectively. Rain can get into areas underneath the siding, where it can cause even more damage. You’ll need to replace the siding, as well as damaged structural materials beneath it.


Your siding’s color will naturally fade over time. If you find yourself having to repaint it every few years, that can be a sign that the siding has been damaged by years of exposure to the elements and that it’s time to have it replaced.

High Utility Bills

Siding is meant to help keep your home’s interior warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If your utility bills have been rising, there can be several reasons. If you’ve ruled out issues with the windows and doors, your siding might be the source of the problem.

Damage to Your Home’s Interior

If your siding is unable to keep moisture out, you might first spot signs of an issue inside your house. Peeling paint and wallpaper can indicate that there’s a moisture problem. Damaged siding might be responsible.
