Frequently asked questions about aluminum siding

How do you fix aluminum siding?

There are a couple of different options for fixing damaged aluminum siding. If you have dents in your aluminum siding, one option is using a filler. Your siding contractor will apply a filler to cover and fill in the dented area, then sand it down to make it flush with the original surface of the siding.

Repairing Cracks and Holes Like vinyl and wood siding, aluminum can be cut away in sections and replaced with new pieces. With this method, we cut out the damaged section of the siding and then unzip it from the rest of the siding installation. This is a good option if the aluminum siding has holes or cracks. Another option to repair your siding is to caulk a new piece of siding over the damaged section and then zip the new piece into the surrounding siding. It’s essential to ensure that the siding stays dry during this process, or moisture could become trapped in the siding and cause further damage.

Your Koalaty Siding Repair siding contractor will know which of these options will work best for your home upon further inspection of the damage to your siding.

Can you replace one piece of siding?

Yes, it’s entirely possible to replace one piece or section of siding instead of investing in an entire siding replacement project. Damaged pieces can be cut out and replaced, dents can be filled, and holes can be patched. The most important thing to consider when choosing between siding repairs and a siding replacement is how much each option costs and whether or not it’s worth the investment to replace the siding entirely. If you’ve noticed that you have to have siding repairs done regularly or your home’s siding is a few decades old, it might be more cost-effective to have a siding contractor replace all of your home’s siding rather than continue to repair sections at a time.
