Your Siding Matters

The weather can throw a lot at your home, and siding is your first line of defense. Improperly installed or failing siding can cause all kinds of problems, from leaks and water damage to drafts leading to high utility bills.

When installed correctly, siding should protect your home for many years. Still, there are a few reasons why your home may need new siding, and it’s always important to be vigilant for these issues:

  • Warped siding can allow water to get behind it, causing damage to the studs and interior walls
  • Rotted siding can occur after years of exposure to the elements. If you have wood siding, peeling paint and crumbling wood are telltale signs. 
  • Sun or storm damage may affect either vinyl or wood siding and has the potential to expose your home to further damage. 

At Bear Roofing & Exteriors, we make sure your siding is installed right so you don’t have to worry about these issues. Siding can also add to the overall style of your home, and our team of siding specialists goes the extra mile to ensure that your home is not only secure but looks its best.

Soffit and Fascia

In addition to the siding itself, your home’s soffit and fascia are two important components to keep an eye on. Both are susceptible to damage. 

  • Soffit is the exposed siding beneath your roof’s overhang. It provides a layer of protection and aids attic airflow. 
  • Fascia is the exposed board on the front of your home’s overhang. It supports the last row of shingles and offers a place for gutters to connect.
