When it comes to siding maintenance, repairs and replacements, first things first—know what kind of siding you have. Some homes are built with vinyl or wood siding, whereas others are built with stucco, stone or brick. If your home is built with vinyl or wood siding, here are a few maintenance tips to keep your home in its best condition.
Most vinyl siding needs very little maintenance relative to the rest of your home, but it is important to be aware of the condition of it so that you can tackle any minor repairs as they happen, minimizing the opportunity for the problem to get even worse. Siding is meant to be durable so Mother Nature, pets and the occasional football won’t hurt it but occasionally you will need to replace a piece of your vinyl siding that comes loose. You will need to replace it sooner rather than later so that bugs and rodents don’t get in. Regular maintenance includes power washing your siding once a year to remove the dirt, grime and any bugs that may be hiding in your siding.
Wood siding needs to be treated every 4 to 6 years, possibly more if you have faced a tough year regarding the weather. Be aware of any cracks and holes that will allow bugs and rodents to get in and make sure you replace any rotted pieces.
