When Should You Replace Your Garage Siding?

Untitled - 2023-12-01T104615.012Your garage can serve many different purposes such as storing your property, acting as a workshop, a home gym and more. Because of this, you want to make sure that your garage is well maintained in order to keep your belongings in good shape. The siding on your garage plays an important role in protecting the structure as well as keeping an appealing appearance. However, the siding can deteriorate overtime due to weather conditions, age, or other factors. So when should you consider replacing the siding on your garage?

Damage

If you notice cracks, holes, warping or discolored boards in your garage siding, this will tell you that it needs replacement as soon as possible. Damaged siding not only compromises the visual appeal but also exposes the structure to potential water damage and pests. Addressing these issues promptly can prevent further damage and maintain the integrity of your garage, saving you from costly repairs down the line. 

Mold/Mildew

Excessive moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth on your garage’s siding. While cleaning can help temporarily remove surface mold, if you consistently see mold returning even after treatment and proper maintenance, it might be an indication of deeper issues with the integrity of the siding material itself. Seeking professional inspection can mitigate the risk of recurring mold issues, ensuring that the structure of your garage stays strong.

Fading/Discoloration

Over time, exposure to sunlight and harsh weather conditions can cause fading or discoloration of your garage’s siding material. However, this is not purely an aesthetic concern. This weathered appearance may suggest that the siding’s protective layers are diminishing, making it more susceptible to moisture penetration, cracks, or even structural weaknesses. Addressing these visual cues promptly by considering replacement can help maintain the structural integrity of your garage.

Dated Appearance

The appearance of your garage contributes significantly to the overall visual appeal of your property. By opting for a new siding that aligns with the architectural style of your house, you not only refresh the garage’s appearance but also improve the overall cohesive look of your property. This update can positively influence the first impression your home makes and potentially increase its market value.
