Are you planning to give your home a face-lift? Siding replacement is an important part of the process when it comes on remodeling the exterior of your home. There are many reasons to consider replacing your siding. Many owners fail to notice the visual signs of deterioration: swollen panels and bowed boards, peeling caulk and peeling paints. But damaged siding not only tarnishes the aesthetic of your exterior; it also creates space for water intrusion, leading to all sorts of other problems.
Siding is like a protective coating which shields your home from the sun and the elements. It works as an insulator to keep you comfortable year-round. Here at Skywalker Roofing, we have solutions for all your siding-related needs. Our team of certified and knowledgeable installers improve the exterior of your home with durable, attractive material and skillful craftmanship. We work to provide a wonderful siding replacement experience for our customers.

Importance of Siding Replacement
A damaged siding can lead to deterioration of your home’s foundation. Sidings protect your home from the beatings of the elements. While siding should enhance the look of your home from the outside, its primary objective is to protect everyone inside. The importance of maintaining and replacing your siding can’t be overstated.
Certain siding replacement products leave ample space for appropriate insulation behind. Efficient siding helps the insulation material to perform its task more effectively. There are many signs to look for which indicate that your siding may need replacement:
- Signs of damage: Utilization of cheap material, inadequate performance by the original installer, or just the wear-and-tear of time are some of the factors that contribute to problems like missing chunks or material on the edges, chipping or flaking of paints, and other issues. Assigning the replacement task to a certified contractor like Skywalker Roofing will help your siding to last for many years.
- Peeling caulk: Don’t be fooled as peeling caulk is not just an aesthetic issue. Allowing siding caulk to peel may result in water intrusion, and this can trigger other issues like mold. Let us help!
- Peeling paint: Paint acts as a protective coating for your sidings. Allowing siding paint to peel means compromising the security of your sidings. Painted sidings last longer than unpainted sidings. Allow Skywalker Roofing to inspect your siding. We can advise whether it just needs to be painted again, or a whether a replacement is in order.
