Wood siding used to be very common in homes around the country, but in more recent times, it has been replaced by more durable and cheaper materials such as aluminum and vinyl.
This doesn’t mean that wood siding has completely fallen out of use. Some really enjoy the look of wood siding, and there are also homes that have wood siding that has been kept up well throughout the years. What do you need to do to make sure that it stays in good shape? One of the greatest enemies of wood siding is moisture.
When water intrudes into the wood, it can cause it to rot and mold. This is why it is important to keep the wood sealed by reapplying either the paint or a similar surface sealing method you use at regular intervals. You should also be attentive to any signs of wood-boring insects infesting your home.
As soon as you see this you need to take care of it, because you might end up dealing with both the insects and woodpeckers going after them.
