- Rot, which may manifest as loose, misshapen, or cracked boards that are often soft when pressed
- Mildew, fungus, or insect infestation (often associated with rot)
- Exterior paint does not last (i.e. it chips, peels, or cracks within 5 or 6 years of painting)
- Blistering/peeling of interior paint or wallpaper
- Harder to heat and cool house/higher utility bills than normal
- Holes in siding, even small ones
- Bubbles in siding, which indicate moisture is permeating the material

Vinyl Siding Vs Fiber Cement
Our team knows that siding should work well and look fantastic, and there are a variety of ways we can help you achieve these goals depending on your situation. A choice you will make early on when replacing your siding Birmingham AL is the material that is right for you and your siding needs. Under One Roof offers both vinyl and fiber cement siding, and it is important to understand the pros and cons of both options.
Vinyl siding is the most common type of siding chosen in the U.S., and with good reason. The material is basically a hard plastic known for its extreme durability. It is impervious to rot and rust and requires no paint. Little maintenance is needed compared to other types of siding, though is the case that you have to replace the whole panel if just a section gets damaged. Another downside of vinyl is that, especially under intense weather conditions, the material can be prone to cracking or loosening. Heat and cold are not a problem, however; vinyl is especially able to expand and contract according to the temperature outside.
Not only is vinyl physically flexible, but it is versatile in terms of color and texture and therefore easily customizable to your style preferences. Whatever you have in mind, our team should be your choice for vinyl siding Birmingham AL.
Fiber cement siding presents similar benefits to vinyl in terms of durability, and although its look is different, you have many options here too when it comes to customizing your exterior. It is more difficult and expensive to install and requires follow-up paint jobs, but it is easy to see why some customers believe it is worth the expense. This environmentally friendly material is resistant to fire, insects, and rot, plus your structure is less vulnerable to mold and mildew because there are no overlapping seams. Unsurprisingly, fiber cement siding also holds strong against a variety of weather conditions.
