Your siding is designed to last for a long time, but without proper maintenance, constant exposure to the elements can cut its lifespan short. Read on as we share some quick tips on keeping your siding in great shape for as long as possible.
Have It Cleaned Regularly
Dirt and dust buildup on the siding’s surface isn’t just unsightly–it can cause damage to the material over time, cutting its service life short. By cleaning your siding on a regular basis, you’ll keep your home looking and performing its best for longer.
Fix Damage ASAP
Just like with your roof and replacement windows, finding and dealing with siding damage ASAP is essential to maximizing the lifespan of the siding. For example, repairing something seemingly minor like a hairline crack on the siding’s surface promptly prevents the crack from worsening and causing more costly damage.
Get Rid of Hazards
Trees that grow too close to the house can damage your siding, and heat-generating appliances like a gas grill near wood or vinyl siding can also cause damage. Check the area around your home for potential hazards and eliminate anything that could cause damage.
Get the Pros to Check It
Some siding problems are difficult to detect without proper training, which is why it’s a good idea to have your siding professionally inspected from time to time. This will help you avoid getting caught off-guard by a potentially serious problem that would otherwise be left undetected.
