Unfortunately, we can’t prevent our siding from getting damaged most of the time. Luckily, Knox Roofing is able to repair homeowners’ siding many times instead of needing to replace it completely. While repairs are unique across every situation, we tend to find some commonalities between quite a few of them. One of the most popular issues that homeowners run into is that the sealing between joints has been weakened or broken. When this happens, a professional will need to reseal the area in order to prevent moisture from infiltrating the siding. Another popular issue is damaged shingles. For the most part, shingles can be pulled out with the proper tools and replaced singularly, instead of replacing the entire area. Other common issues we see stems from improper installation. When people use the cheapest installer in the area, they often get the cheapest quality of service as well. This could mean boards are not properly nailed in, joints are not sealed from the start to prevent leaks, or the contractor used low quality materials which effects the integrity of the siding overall.
Regular maintenance is the best way to keep your siding in top shape. How an issue is fixed will largely be determined by the type of siding you have – for example, gouged wood siding can be sanded down and repainted, whereas a cracked vinyl board will need to be replaced. An experienced siding repair contractor like Knox Roofing will be able to tell you the process of repair that is needed for your unique situation.
“I highly recommend Knox Roofing, they came out and fixed some issues I had on my roof where other contacts told me it was fixed and it wasn’t. These guys know what they are doing and show up on time, every time!”
“I had Knox Construction come out and do my entire house with Pella windows. They showed up right on time. We had 13 windows in total with 1 6foot by 8foot bay window to replace a large sheet of glass. Everything turned out amazing I couldn’t be happier. They are now slated to do 3 of my neighbor’s houses in windows 1 with paint and 2 other neighbors with. The team has been just amazing!”
“Completed a major roofing job on my old 1900 2-story home in Nampa. The project involved a tear-off of 3 layers of roofing including the original 118 year old shake shingles. I am very impressed with the efficiency, speed, and professionalism of Bruce and his crew working on this project. They completed the tear-off, put on sheathing, and new shingling, including new flashings on pipes, a ridge vent and quality shingling while maintaining professional communication, timeliness and safely completed the job before the rains came. 5 Stars – highly recommend.”
When to Know Your Siding Needs Repaired
While checking your siding after major storms, you may notice that pieces of your siding are loose or cracked. This is one of the key signs that it is time to repair your siding. Seeing any water damage, rust, mold, rot, or insect damage are also some factors that should let you know you should be calling a professional. Although small cracks and holes might not seem like a big deal at first, they can still impact the protection offered by your siding. Insects and water can easily penetrate the smallest of storm damage, which is why it is important to get your siding checked regularly.
Even though some siding repair projects can be done by a DIYer, it is always a better decision to call in an experienced professional. Siding isn’t like an inside paint job that has no effect on other aspects of your home – faulty siding repairs can lead to much worse damage. Down the road, you will have to replace your entire siding instead of just that one board if it is neglected for long enough. Siding experts like Knox Roofing will be able to fix your siding right the first time so you do not have to worry about its integrity down the road. Additionally, we will be able to tell you if there are other issues that need to be repaired you might have missed initially. Asking a professional is the best way to keep your siding in the best shape possible.

Siding Repair vs. Replacement
To the untrained eye, it can be hard to determine whether siding needs to be repaired or completely replaced. After major storms, your siding can look much worse than it really is at first glance. A trained, experienced professional like those at Knox Roofing will be able to properly inspect your siding for unseen damage and will be able to decide what is best for the protection of your home. We know how expensive it can be to replace siding, which is why we do our best to offer repairing solutions that extend the life of your siding. Each time we come to your home, we will take into account how old your existing siding is, as well as how many repairs it has had in the past to be able to tell you whether it is smarter to repair or replace.
Smaller chips or cracks are typically a repair project rather than replacement. Our crew will look at a portion of damage in relation to the whole of your siding – normally, damage limited to only a few boards will be repaired. When there is extensive cracking, fading, or mass rotting, it will be time to replace the entirety of the siding. Mold, on the other hand, can be a repair or replacement fix. A Knox Roofing expert will be able to determine the extent of the mold and whether it can be removed by just repairing a few boards or if a larger solution needs to be applied.
The Benefits of New Siding
If you are simply looking for an easy way to enhance your curb appeal, siding is a quick and efiicient solution. Updated siding also has the added benefit of increasing resale value.
Regardless of your specific needs, we offer a design consultation to achieve the desired look and product that is right for you and your home.
