Siding is a great exterior material because it’s cost-effective, customizable, and most importantly for the majority of homeowners, easy to maintain. Although siding doesn’t require very much maintenance, there are things you should do regularly to keep the siding on your home in good condition.
- Every six months or so, walk around your home and do a visual inspection of your siding. If you notice pieces falling off or rotting, let us know so that we can come and fix the issue before things get worse.
- A fresh coat of paint can make a big difference for your siding. If your siding has started to fade or the paint has worn off in certain spots, make the effort to repaint it. This will improve your home’s curb appeal and protect your siding from damage.
- Have your siding pressure washed every few months. This will eliminate dirt, grime, mold, and mildew from building up on your siding. Not only will this freshen up your siding’s appearance, but it will also prevent issues from mold and mildew buildup.
- If you have bushes and shrubs near your home’s exterior, keep them trimmed. Letting your landscaping grow wild next to your siding can result in scratching and damage to your home’s exterior.
