Siding Replacement with Thompson’s Home Improvement
Does your home need a face-lift? Siding replacement is an essential part of remodeling the exterior of any home. More than just an aesthetic feature, siding is an important layer of protection that shields your home from the weather and elements, and it works as an insulator to help keep you comfortable year-round.

We have an extensive selection of colors, trims, and accessories to match your home and style perfectly. A siding replacement job is a big undertaking, but it’s necessary to keep your home in great condition. A siding replacement remodel with Thompson’s Home Improvement is one of the best investments you can make in the look and feel of your home.
Is It Time to Replace Your Siding?
How do you know if it’s time to replace your siding? Most homeowners can make this decision after a visual inspection of their home. Take a careful and systematic look at each part of your siding, section by section. Don’t be shy about getting close and poking around! It’s time to schedule an appointment with a siding contractor if you see any of the following:
Warped Siding: The most obvious signal that it’s time for a replacement job is when your siding is pulling away from your home or is clearly warped (look for straight siding that appears creased or dented.) Be aware: old vinyl siding is especially vulnerable to warping.
Cracks: You already know that big cracks in your siding mean it’s time for a replacement, but did you know that small cracks are also causes for concern? While one or two tiny cracks can be filled with putty, lots of little cracks mean that your home has probably been compromised by moisture or pests.
Rot: If multiple sections of your siding have brown discoloration or are peeling and warping, you’re looking at rot. Rot can quickly spread past your siding and compromise the rest of your home from the outside in. Act quickly!
Blisters and Bubbles: Bubbles and blisters occur when water is trapped in your siding. Since the purpose of siding is to protect your home from moisture, it makes sense to get new siding if your current cladding isn’t doing its job.
The Benefits of Siding Replacement
Replacing your worn-out siding isn’t just important to protect your house from the elements and pests! It’s a great opportunity to add value and beauty to your property.
In our experience, most Nebraska homeowners can expect a 78% return on their investment when they replace their siding. New siding also adds curb appeal, which can boost your home’s resale value when you choose to sell. Beautiful new siding will help you ace your first impression when potential buyers pull up to your home.
Another benefit of replacing your siding? You can cut down on your energy bills. New siding seals in your ventilation and improves insulation. With the hot summers and cold winters we experience here in Nebraska, reducing heating and cooling costs is a serious bonus.
