Homeowners are always seeking innovative and effective ways to maintain their home, especially in this season of starting fresh. From restoration to quick fixes, not all homeowners have the time or budget to handle the maintenance requirements. Therefore, below we will show you how to maintain your home’s siding, and what to be on a look out for.
Home Siding Maintenance Based Off Of Material
Maintaining a home’s siding is important to keep the home in a better condition throughout the years. Well-maintained siding will better protect your home from the elements, like rain, wind, snow, etc. Home siding comes in a few different materials which all need to be treated and maintained differently. We’re talking about a few of the most common materials and what you can do to keep them well-maintained.
Treating your wood siding every four to six years is ideal, however, if it is not checked regularly, you may see new cracks or breaks in the siding. If you see a few cracks splinters forming, getting them fixed as soon as possible will help to keep your home in a better condition.
Stucco siding is an extremely spongy material. Therefore, it is easier for birds and bugs to create holes and make a home in the siding. Stucco is easily stained as well, therefore, getting it cleaned often will help to keep it in tip-top shape.If you’re interested in switching from a stucco siding option to vinyl, wood, or fiber cement give the siding experts at Fairfield County Exteriors a call!
Vinyl siding is increasingly becoming more popular for home siding, as it requires less maintenance. All you really need to properly maintain vinyl siding is a good pressure wash from a professional one to two times a year and it will stay strong and maintain itself. If you live in an area that has a higher risk of snow storms, thunderstorms, strong winds or hail then vinyl siding could be a good option for you to consider.
