Siding can completely change a home and leave a great first impression on all who see it.
However, this also means that shabby, cracked, or chipped siding can leave a really negative first impression. Think about what your home is saying about you right now, and then think about what you’d like it to say. Do those things align? Maybe, maybe not.
Unfortunately, we can become blind to what our siding is saying, but it’s really something we should be paying attention to regularly. When it’s left to its own devices for too long, it can also cause expensive problems. Whether your home just needs an uplift or if it has rot and mold, TI Exteriors is here to make it great again.
Signs your siding needs a boost
Since it’s common for siding to go unnoticed for quite awhile, you might not be aware of what you should be looking for when it comes to potential damage. If your Houston area siding is simply just faded or a bit chipped, you’re most likely safe from serious issues without immediate repairs. However, you should keep an eye out for the following signs:
Easy to spot, broken or damaged siding is not only unsightly, it leaves your home susceptible to damage--both internal and external--without repair
Mold & Mildew
Traditionally, siding is made from porous materials that are prime breeding grounds for mold and mildew. This is problematic because the mold and mildew must be completely removed in order to keep everyone safe.
Mold and rot are not synonymous with one another. Rot can occur on its own when broken or damaged siding is left unrepaired. When rot happens, the entire piece must be removed in order to repair it.
Decreased Insulation Efficacy
When siding is damaged, it can let unwanted air travel in and out of the home. This will cause your heating and cooling costs to increase noticeably over time, so be sure to keep an eye on those bills.

Obviously, every option comes with its own pros and cons, but we’ll guide you through it to ensure your home is a reflection of you while also being high quality.
