Wake Up Your Weather-Weary Siding the Professional Way
If you’re fortunate enough to live in a home that’s sided with natural wood, the importance to regular maintenance and upkeep cannot be underestimated. Properly protected with stain, clear sealer, or paint, your siding will last for decades. Unprotected, siding is at the mercy of the elements. It can rot and decay, and repairs can cost you thousands.
Seamless Custom Painting and Wallpaper makes it easy and affordable to protect, restore, and beautify your exterior siding with our professional staining and sealing services. Expert care of your siding is the best investment you can make to increase the value of your home while adding all-important curb appeal if you’re thinking about selling.
Keep in Mind that Moisture, Sun and Insects Can Ruin Your Wood Siding
These mortal enemies of your deck can pose serious threats to unprotected and under-protected wood siding. If you aren’t vigilant about regular staining and maintenance, you’re leaving your siding exposed to:
- Moisture damage – Once moisture permeates wood fibers that haven’t been properly stained and maintained, mold, mildew, and algae can move in and ruin the appearance of your siding. Moisture also causes wood to expand and contract with normal changes in humidity and temperature. These fluctuations can make your shingles split and warp and put stress on caulking around windows and doors. Left unchecked, moisture problems can cause your siding to rot, which can cost you thousands of dollars to repair.
- Sun damage – If wood shingles aren’t properly sealed, stained and conditioned, wood siding is vulnerable to damage from ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The never-ending barrage of UV rays can turn bare shingles an ugly gray and can cause older stains and paints to fade and discolor. The sun’s searing heat will cause wood to dry out and crack. Stains will fade and some finishes can start flaking, bubbling, and peeling away from wood surfaces. Major restoration or total replacement of your siding can be excruciatingly expensive.
- Insect damage – The damaging conditions that result from moisture and sun damage invite insects to move in for an all-you-can-eat food fest. Termites, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees are more than a nuisance; they can destroy your siding. In extreme cases, insects may even cause major problems with your home’s structural framework. Once these wood-eaters take up residence, they’re difficult to evict. Most times, the only cure is repeated treatment with strong pesticides. Even that may not do enough to solve your problem. And, if you’ve ever hired an exterminator, you already know that their hefty fees can send your budget into a tailspin.
