What Causes Siding Problems

Your home’s siding is more than just a pretty facade—it’s a protective shield against the elements. Maintaining it in top shape is crucial to the home’s health and structural integrity. But what should you do when you find damage on your siding? 

What Causes Siding Problems

With a bit of knowledge and the right care, you can keep your siding looking great and performing even better. Our home window repair and siding replacement team at Window World of Boston explores the top culprits behind siding problems so you know what to watch out for.

Weather Conditions

Extreme weather conditions can unleash havoc on your siding. From the blistering summer sun to the freezing winter chills, harsh weather can cause the siding to crack, warp, or fade. Regular check-ups are critical to spotting these problems early on.

Insects and Other Pests

Sometimes, the issue isn’t caused by the weather but by the tiny trespassers that burrow into your siding. Insects, rodents and other pests can be incredibly destructive, gnawing at the siding and creating weak spots over time. While it may not be initially visible, a pesky pest problem can escalate quickly and gradually cause significant damage. Regular pest control can help keep these critters from getting onto your property.

Lack of Maintenance

Siding maintenance is a part of being a responsible homeowner. While hardly doing any maintenance may be tempting once your siding is up, it still needs regular TLC like any part of your home. Ignoring minor issues like a crack or a loose panel can lead to more significant problems.

Poor Installation

Just like a window or door installation, professionals are tasked with carefully handling your siding. As incredible as your siding material may be, what truly counts is how it was installed. Poorly installed siding can lead to water seepage, resulting in rot and mold over time.


Fading is another common issue associated with siding problems. Overexposure to the sun can lead to discoloration or fading in certain areas of your home, resulting in an uneven and unappealing look. If you’re planning to invest in new siding, make sure to choose a product that boasts excellent fade resistance.

Old Age

Lastly, don’t forget to consider the age of your siding. Like everything else, your siding won’t last forever. Old, worn-out siding will not protect your home as it should and might even bring down its aesthetic appeal.
