How do you know it’s time for new siding?
Are you tired of the high maintenance stucco siding requires? Moisture retention causes visible stains on your stucco siding. Look carefully at the edges and corners of your windows and doors as you do a visual inspection of your siding to verify you need to replace it. If stucco siding appears stained or discolored, problems could be lurking below the surface.
Do you desire a refreshing new look for your home? Is your current siding infested with pests like termites or other unwanted bugs? Do you have moisture damage like wood rot, mold, or mildew? Is your current siding warped, cracked or dented from high winds or debris? Has your current siding faded, worn down, or become damaged in some way? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it’s likely time for siding replacement.
