Siding Repair in Columbia, SC
Premiere Roofing is dedicated to helping you keep your property intact and replacing vinyl siding if necessary. Siding is usually damaged by storms and wear and tear. It can be frightening to think that a simple thunderstorm could turn into a severe storm, causing an immense amount of expensive damage to the siding on your property. No matter the damage, Premiere Roofing is there to help you pick up the pieces.
Siding chips are incredibly common and occur when a small piece of the vinyl siding breaks off, and it is generally in the form of a half circle. Chips are usually small, but they can also be large. A large chip can be the result of a piece of debris hitting the siding during a storm. Even if a bike leans up against the side of the house in the same spot eventually the siding can become weak and chip. There is even the possibility that the chip can cause nearby siding to weaken and become damaged. Chips often go unnoticed because they are most commonly found underneath a section of the panel.
Whether chips in your siding are small or extensive, you should take care of the problem as soon as possible to minimize problems to the underlying structure of your home.
Even though vinyl siding is both tough and durable, like most building materials, it can sustain damage under the right circumstances. Siding holes often occur as a result of a severe storm, where large hail, trees, and flying debris hit the siding, causing a hole. When your siding has a hole in it, you lose some support and your home is unprotected from the elements and even small rodents.
Holes in your siding should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the structure of your home. Vinyl siding is very resistant to the elements and debris, but it is not immune to siding repairs.
It is best to fix holes in your siding as soon as possible. Waiting around can lead to issues such as moisture damage and make things worse in the long run.
Similar to holes, breaks are usually caused by severe storms, tornados, or other types of violent weather such as wind. Once a section of your siding breaks not only is it unattractive, it no longer protects your home from the elements. Siding breaks can occur in places where you may not notice them right away, such as under the siding or near the roof (where the roof overhangs and part of the siding is slightly hidden).
If left unrepaired, broken siding can lead to:
- Water damage
- High energy bills
- Mold and mildew
- Lost curb appeal
Our siding repair specialists can repair or replace broken siding so your home can stay protected from the elements.
Cracking is defined as cracks or splits parallel to your siding. Much like chips, they often appear as half circles. Your property’s siding can crack if it’s been hit by debris such as a tree branch or heavy flying objects. Extreme heat and cold can also cause the siding to weaken and crack.
When the weather gets cold enough, even the smallest impact against it will cause vinyl to crack or fracture. Some of these cracks may not be noticeable unless you get up close, but even small cracks can allow moisture to infiltrate through the siding, which can lead to numerous problems, including:
- Wood rot
Don’t allow cracked siding to ruin the appearance and functionality of your home. The team at Premiere Roofing can replace or repair cracked siding so your home can stay protected from the elements.
