When was the last time you took a close look at your home’s siding? If it’s been a while, you might find that it’s time to schedule some siding repairs to restore it to its former glory. In some cases, small repairs may not be enough. Instead, you may need to replace sections of your siding.
So, what can you expect if you need siding repairs or replacement services in Greer, SC? The C&W Roofing, Siding & Window Co is here to help you. Continue reading to learn more about some of the common causes of siding damage, what to expect when it comes to repairs vs. replacement, and how it varies for different types of siding.
Common Causes of Siding Damage
Here in the Greer area, there are certain culprits that tend to lead to siding damage. If you’re walking around your home to visually examine the state of your siding, these are a few things you might see.
- Melted siding from a grill that was placed too close to the home
- Melted siding from a glare coming off a neighboring window reflecting onto your vinyl siding
- Siding that’s pulling away from your home due to high winds
- Metal coming off the fascia (the trim area at your roof line that your gutters attach to) due to high winds
- Holes in your soffit due to critters
- Fiber cement siding and trim that is cracked, crumbling, pulling away from the home, or otherwise damaged
- Wood, composite, or masonite siding that is deteriorating
If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to call in the help of a siding repair expert like our team here at C&W Roofing, Siding & Window Co.
Siding Repairs vs. Replacement
When you hire our team to come out and inspect your siding, we’ll be able to give you more specific recommendations about repairs vs. replacement options. However, more generally speaking, here’s what you can expect for different types of siding.
Vinyl siding will age and become brittle, fading over time. If the damaged area is large and visible enough, our team can repair it by taking siding off another, hidden area of your home and transferring it to the visible area.
We can then install the closest match to the missing areas, or even install an accent siding in a different color or style.
Our vinyl siding repair specialist has been perfecting his technique for 30 years and can get in and out quickly without disrupting your day. Generally speaking, vinyl siding repairs can take anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours, depending on your specific needs.
Fiber Cement and Composite Siding
Fiber cement and composite siding repairs are a cause for more investigation. First, we like to send out a project manager to ensure the siding was initially installed correctly to make sure it’s not failing and to evaluate any issues that we think could become more serious problems in the near future.
These repairs are assessed and priced on a case-by-case basis, but as the upstate’s only Elite Preferred Level James Hardie contractor, there is no one better to assess, make recommendations, and carry out repairs than our team.
Wood or Masonite Siding
Lots of wood, masonite, or other older styles of siding may need to be repaired, but those products aren’t used as much if at all anymore. Certain small spot repairs can be made with other products like fiber cement siding, or we can replace a section or full wall if needed.
Our project managers can evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis and recommend a solution that’s right for your home and budget.
The metal covering of your fascia is specifically cut, bent, and attached to your home and cannot usually be reused once it comes loose, falls off, or is bent by the wind. Instead, your fascia will almost always have to be replaced instead of repaired.
Budgeting for Your Project
Depending on the scope of your project, it can be hard to budget for how much your repairs or replacement may be. Currently, our minimum siding repair price is $425, if the technician can assess the area while on the ground and if our team does not have to provide any materials. Repair prices go up from there, depending on the height involved and the material needed.
Depending on the age of your home, replacement siding may not be readily available, and this can also impact the cost of the repair. If replacement siding cannot be found locally, sold by the piece, we will order a box of the closest matching product and you’ll get to keep the remaining siding for any future repair needs.
