Experienced Siding Contractors That Can Give Your Home A Brand New Look
How long has it been since you’ve replaced or refurbished your home’s exterior siding?
If you can’t remember, it’s probably been long enough. Over time, your siding gets exposed to extreme weather conditions that can wear it down. This can cause the boards to weaken, crack and break, which both looks bad and will expose your home’s foundation to the elements.
Many homes built in the 1980s or 1990s have hardboard siding for their exterior. Hardboard siding – also known as pressboard or Masonite – is created from a mixture of wood, glue and resin. This inexpensive material was widely popular for the time, but has since been proven to deteriorate quickly.
If your home’s hardboard siding has seen better days, Dependable Home Services can repair or replace your exterior with better siding material.
As professional home renovation contractors, you can trust our siding services to get rid of your weathered pressboard siding and replace it with brand new material that enhances your home’s appearance.
Problems with Pressboard Siding
One of the main reasons why hardboard siding is not the best for your home is because the material absorbs water instead of deflecting it. With constant precipitation or terrible storms that occur throughout the year, this buildup of water can be detrimental.
Waterlogged boards can do several things:
When this happens over and over, your siding will quickly damage.
With hardboard siding, your problems can go beyond cracked boards and a crumbling exterior surface. When too much water gets absorbed into the wood and stays, it can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
Mold proliferates in damp environments, making pressboard siding easily susceptible to its growth. Not only does this damage your siding and home’s foundation, but it can also put your health at risk.
Mold exposure can cause health problems, including:
- Itchy eyes, nose and throat
- Shortness of breath
- Chest tightness
For older family members or those with asthma, this exposure can severely impact their health.
