While vinyl siding is easier to maintain than wood siding and has a longer life, you can take steps to keep your home’s exterior in its best shape for as long as possible. There are key ways to keep your curb appeal looking its best.
Watch the Weather: Hail and strong winds can cause damage to your siding that needs to be addressed. Vinyl can crack or puncture and these need to be fixed or repaired.
Trim Trees: If you have trees, bushes or other greenery close to your home, make sure that these are kept cut and away from your siding as they can not only cause damage but can also be a source of staining that will affect the look of your siding.
Spot Clean: Keep an eye on staining and mold growth and tackle it sooner vs. later with a sponge, bristle brush and mild detergent. Make sure to rinse the area clear, so as not to leave soap behind.
Annual Upkeep: Beyond just spot cleaning, you should wash your home’s exterior once a year. Use a ladder and extended brushes for hard-to-reach spots. You can pressure wash your home, but be careful not to damage the siding as the stream is powerful.
Important Inspection: Just like the rest of your home, you need to keep a careful eye on your siding to ensure that there are not any problems. This is especially vital after a big storm or weather event. Besides dents, streaks may be an indication of hidden leaks.
Keep Heat Away: Vinyl has a low melting point. Be mindful of how close you put your gas or charcoal grill as well as patio torches, which can cause melting.
Upgrade with New: If your siding has many damaged spots or is starting to look out-of-date, it may be time for a whole new look. As has been on the inside, gray is a popular fresh choice for your siding color in this new decade. Neutral grays can work with both warm and cool accent colors.
