Noticeable damage on your current siding requires an immediate fix. However, you may be wondering whether to replace either a single board or a large section of siding. John Peters Roofing, your local siding and roof replacement contractor, sheds light on the matter.
While it is rare, damage to a single piece of siding can happen. Aside from warping caused by product defects, cracks and other forms of damage may manifest as a result of an airborne object like an errant baseball or a wind-carried branch. In these instances, replacing the damaged piece of siding is the best way to go.
Fortunately, this option is possible for most siding materials, including vinyl, aluminum, and fiber cement. The only challenge here is the removal of that one damaged panel in the middle of a wall. Siding and roof installation pros must be careful not to damage the surrounding panels as they perform the replacement.
Large Siding Section Replacement
In some instances, damage occurs on the entire wall or large section of siding. It may be in the form of rot or mildew spreading across the entire wall of siding, dents on aluminum panels, or warping on cheap vinyl due to heat exposure. In these cases, large sections need to be replaced.
During replacement, the pros will first saw out the damaged sections and carefully replace them with new materials. However, it is more practical to just replace the entire section, especially if the current siding has already shown signs of aging. Mixing old and new siding will result in a color clash, which many homeowners want to avoid.
