“We went out for a drive the other day,” Margaret said. “No where in particular, just around the neighborhood. And we were looking at how people have spent the pandemic freshening up their homes. So many beautiful planters, with spring flowers. Some people have new decks now. Everything just looked so nice, and then we got home to our place. Pulling in the driveway I realized our house looked boring and tired. That’s when I asked John, my husband, “Is it time to replace the vinyl siding?”
On average, high quality vinyl siding has an expected useful life of between 20 and 30 years. But there are a number of factors, including harsh winters and stormy weather, that can negatively impact that lifespan. Additionally, not all vinyl siding is of equal quality. If the product that was initially installed on your home is not so great, it can wear out faster. Signs of this include fading, sagging, warping, splitting, and more.
The installation of vinyl siding also has an impact on its useful lifespan. As vinyl siding contractors in Marshfield MA, one issue we often see is that the siding was installed too tightly, without leaving enough room for the siding to move as needed in response to changing environmental conditions. The result – splits, cracks, and other unsightly damage.
