The opportunity to install a new siding is a great and effective way to improve your home’s exterior, upping your curb appeal. However, that’s not the only purpose of a siding replacement, since it can also help protect your home. In today’s post, one of the top siding and roof repair experts in the area, Expert Contracting, shares how siding, or wall cladding, protects your home.
Prevents Rain and Moisture Infiltration
If the siding is already old, and damaged, then it won’t be as effective as fending off water and rain like before. In fact, it could provide openings that make it easy for water and moisture to infiltrate your home. Consequently, this encourages mold spores and mildew to grow in your home. This will cause structural damage and negatively impact your home’s indoor air quality.
Fortunately, your siding and roof replacement expert offers high-quality CertainTeed® siding which comes with a CertaWrap™ Weather Resistant Barrier that controls airflow through the wall, and prevents moisture and water infiltration from the exterior. This ensures that your cladding remains dry and free of mold growth.
Provides Structural Support
As mentioned before, cladding prevents structural damage to your home by protecting it against moisture, rain, and blunt force. Another function that it provides is giving additional support to the structural framework should it weaken. While a new siding isn’t the permanent fix to this issue, it definitely slows down the progression of the issues, giving you time to prepare for the permanent fix, and slowing down further damage.
