Factors That Can Affect Your Siding’s Lifespan

With proper maintenance, your siding should be able to last many years. However, some factors may be beyond your control, potentially cutting your siding’s life span short. Siding and roofing company Mass-Tech Roofing and Building Co.​​ discusses these variables below and shares tips on how to handle them.

Factors That Can Affect Your Siding’s Lifespan


Regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial for your siding to remain in good condition for many years to come. Failure to properly maintain your siding will inevitably curtail its lifespan. Different siding materials have different maintenance requirements. Wood, for instance, is fairly high maintenance, whereas vinyl is much easier to care for. If you’re looking for a no-fuss siding option, you can’t go wrong with vinyl.


The kind of environment and climate you live in will certainly affect how quickly your siding wears. If your area experiences strong winds or humid weather, you can expect your siding to wear out faster. Much like roof replacement in such areas, you might have to perform siding replacement sooner. Fortunately, some siding materials are specially designed to handle these harsh conditions, which is something your siding contractor can provide guidance on. 

Wind-Blown Debris

Strong winds can cause debris to hit your siding, potentially causing damage. If you live in an area that frequently sees strong winds, talk to your siding contractor about which types of siding are the most puncture-resistant.
