How Long Does Siding Last?
Depending on your location the average home siding will last from 20 – 25 years. Areas that are more humid may need to change siding sooner. There are some things to look out for to determine if it is time to replace your siding. Make sure you inspect your siding every so often. Look to see if it is beginning to look warped or if it is starting to feel like it is starting to rot. Also keep an eye out for signs of mold or mildew. You can also look for signs inside your home, such as peeling paint or sagging wallpaper.
