Is it purely functional or aesthetic improvement or a combination of both? A thorough professional inspection and consultation with Milwaukee siding experts will help you determine and identify current problems and the most cost effective and best solutions.
For older homes, a full tear-off is always the best procedure. Typically older homes will have several layers of siding (ex. wood, asphalt, vinyl or aluminum). If there is evidence of water damage around windows and penetrations on one or more of the existing siding layers, it must be repaired prior to residing to avoid problems associated with rotting wall sheathing, framing or mold infiltration. To achieve a high quality finished job, you must first start with a good, solid base.
