Siding maintenance is a year-round affair, but there are specific tasks you can carry out depending on the season. For fall, here are some siding maintenance tips.
Do an Inspection
Giving your siding a closer look is a great way to spot issues before they worsen and sometimes before they even develop. Make sure you go over every inch of your home’s cladding, looking for peeling paint, holes, gaps, cracks and signs of rot and mold or mildew growth. Don’t forget to closely inspect the caulking as well, located where your siding meets windows, doors and other penetrations. What you discover during your inspection will determine if you need repairs or are due for a replacement.
Clean It Up
While your siding can most definitely protect your home from the weather and other external threats, it is no match for dirt buildup.
Fortunately, even when your siding has seen better days, it’ll likely mostly just need some warm, soapy water and a soft-bristled brush to get back to its former glory. For faster cleaning, you can also use a power washer – just make sure to start at a low setting to avoid denting your siding.
