Is Your Siding Ready for April Storms?

It’s undeniable that in many homes in cities like St. Louis siding is often underappreciated. This doesn’t mean that homeowners here care less about things like curb appeal; it’s just that most households have (arguably) more important home improvement projects with which to concern themselves.

Nearly the only time anyone notices siding is when it’s dirty, discolored, or damaged. If you’ve never experienced damaged or ugly siding, lucky you. But the good news is that even if your siding does get ruined, it’s a relatively painless fix. Still, you should have it looked at as soon as possible—especially with the spate of bad weather heading St. Louis’s way.

The latest weather forecasts report storms in the near future for the St. Louis region. The last thing you should do is leave vulnerable points in your home’s exterior. The condition of your siding in St. Louis could mean the difference between minor and major damage to your home.
