If you've got older vinyl siding, it may not be.  Check out this article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune where a home inspection professional speaks about the siding problems that can come from having old, worn-down vinyl siding may be causing leaks and letting moisture get into your home's structure.  Moisture testing is something that should be done by a professional, and the article includes a video that demonstrates how it works. What You’ll Learn from This Article:
  • You’ll learn what to spot on the outside of the home (as well as the inside) to detect vinyl siding moisture leaks.
  • Why you might want to control the leaking on the outside of the home before it hits the inside.
  • What you can do to fix the problem so that it does not become something that is out of control, or something that could have been fixed to begin with.
By knowing what to spot inside your home, you’re better able to control the problems that happen outside. This includes knowing when it's time to repair and redo the siding when it is needed.If your vinyl siding is in bad shape, it's time to do something about it.  Do not moisture get beind that siding - it can cause rotting wood, and eventually it can get to the inside of the home where it is likely to cause mold and mildew that can make everyone sick.
