Is Water Making its Way Behind Your Home’s Siding?

It doesn’t matter if your home has old or new vinyl siding, it’s imperative to inspect it every now and again. When doing so, you want to make sure no water is making its way behind the siding.

At first glance, it’s easy to believe that your siding is watertight. However, this isn’t always the case. Instead, there’s a chance that water could be seeping behind the siding, thus increasing the potential for damage to the exterior and interior of your property.

Here are some of the many ways water can sneak behind your home’s siding:

·      Damaged or missing siding. If your vinyl siding is damaged or your home is missing a piece or more, you need to take immediate action. The longer you wait to fix the problem the greater chance there is of water damage.

·      Siding butt-joint gaps. In most cases, this all comes down to proper installation. For example, staggered butt joints can help protect against this becoming a problem.

·      Weak points. There are weak points in every vinyl siding installation, such as where exterior lights and vents are mounted. Fortunately, with proper sealing, this problem can be prevented.

If you have reason to believe water is making its way behind your home’s siding, now’s the time to take action. We’re more than happy to visit your home, inspect your siding, and help you decide what to do next.

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.
