"Take a walk around your property and inspect your exterior siding closely, from multiple angles," advises Eldredge. "In particular, check for any siding that no longer lies flat." Bulging or warped siding panels can be like the tip of an iceberg, warning of hazards hidden out of view. When confronted with evidence that there may be serious damage beneath the siding, don't hesitate to seek a consultation from the pros. At Sears Home Services, Eldredge says, teams specializing in siding repair and installation can provide diagnoses of such problems and advise you how to proceed.
