ATD Restoration knows that your home must be kept clean and well-maintained at all times to keep it beautiful and functional. This is especially important for your siding; if it’s not maintained properly, it can make your home look old and neglected. Not to mention poorly insulated which can causes issues with comfort and energy efficiency.
As your trusted specialist for siding and roof tiles, we’re here to share a few tips you can follow to keep your siding in excellent condition and make the most out of your home investment. Here’s what you need to know:
Inspect Your Siding
To prolong the life of your siding, you need to perform regular checks to make sure it looks as good as it should. Any external damage to your siding can also potentially damage what’s underneath, which can compromise the structural integrity of your home. Make sure to do visual inspections at least once or twice a year so you can spot minor problems and correct them before they become bigger and expensive to repair.
Replace Old and Damaged Siding
When you see old, scratched, dented, warped, loose or missing pieces of siding, don’t ignore them! Instead, you should hire professional siding contractors so they can repair and replace the affected siding, which also helps your home’s exterior last longer. Otherwise, water damage, mildew, mold, or other problems can worsen, even affecting the structural integrity of your home.
Keep Your Siding Clean
Each type of siding needs regular cleaning to remove dirt, mildew and other damaging substances. This is essential to extend its life and durability while still making your home look fresh and clean. If you have wood siding, clean it once a year with warm and soapy water and a soft-bridled brush that removes dirt gently. For fiber cement siding, rinse it with a garden hose to remove dust and dirt. A power washer can also be used every few years, but be careful to set the pressure just right.
