With winter just around the corner, now is the perfect time to check on the health of your home’s siding. Siding keeps your home protected and looking its best, and any damage—especially in our harsh northern climate—can easily become a big headache for homeowners. Here are a few maintenance tips to ensure that your home remains beautiful and protected for years to come.
No matter the siding material, regular cleaning is essential to extend its lifespan. Use a soft brush or a pressure washer on low setting to remove dirt and grime.
Periodically inspect your siding for signs of damage, such as cracks, dents or loose panels. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.
Repainting or Restaining
If you have wood or some other painted/stained siding, plan to repaint or restain it every 5 to 10 years to maintain its appearance and protection.
Keep an eye out for signs of insect or rodent infestations, as they can easily damage your siding. Any holes should be promptly repaired to prevent small infestations from becoming big ones.
Ensure that your siding is properly weatherproofed and sealed to prevent moisture infiltration, which can lead to rot and decay.
