4 Things That Affect Your Siding’s Longevity

The life span of your home’s siding can be influenced by several factors, including the quality and type of material, installation methods, environmental conditions, and maintenance routines. Understanding these elements can help homeowners make informed decisions to ensure their siding lasts as long as possible. Window World of Boston explains them in detail in this blog post.

4 Things That Affect Your Siding’s Longevity
  1. Siding Material. The type and quality of the siding material you choose can significantly affect its durability. Vinyl siding, for instance, is known to last 20 to 40 years. Wood siding, while aesthetically pleasing and has a service life of between 15 to 40 years, requires more upkeep in the form of painting and staining. Fiber cement siding is highly durable and can withstand the elements, with a typical life span of up to 50 years. The life span of these siding materials are mere averages only — it may still vary depending on the amount of maintenance they receive and their exposure to the local climate, among other things.
  2. Proper Installation. Correct installation is crucial in maximizing the life span of your siding. Poorly installed siding is more likely to experience issues such as warping, cracking, or loosening, which can lead to frequent but costly repairs or even a premature replacement. Hiring a professional and experienced installer like Window World of Boston ensures that your siding is installed correctly, providing a solid foundation for its longevity.
  3. Weather and Environmental Factors. Environmental conditions can have a profound impact on the life span of your siding. For instance, siding in areas with harsh weather conditions, like heavy snow or high winds, may suffer damage more quickly. Similarly, siding in areas with high humidity may be more prone to mold and mildew, which can degrade the material over time. It’s important to consider your local climate when choosing siding materials.
  4. The Impact of Regular Maintenance. Regular maintenance is key to extending the life of your siding. This includes cleaning your siding regularly to remove dirt and prevent mold and mildew growth, inspecting for and repairing any damage promptly, and, in the case of wood siding, repainting or refinishing the material. Regular maintenance helps prevent minor issues from becoming major problems, thereby extending the life of your siding.
