The air is starting to get chillier, and the lush greens of summer are slowly turning to that familiar orange hue. No one wants to spend this beautiful time of year worrying about roof replacements, siding repair and other home maintenance responsibilities, which is why it’s so important to get these things done as soon as possible so you can have more time to enjoy the season.
Let our exterior remodeling experts at A&A Services Home Improvement share some essential steps you can take to help keep your home and siding in good condition.
Siding inspections should be performed at least once every few years in order to identify potential problem areas and resolve issues before they get worse (and more costly). Neglecting routine checkups can lead to expensive siding repairs or replacement jobs, resulting in much bigger headaches for you. Ask your local contractor about signing a maintenance agreement so you won’t have to worry about your siding in the future.
Keeping your siding clean doesn’t just make your home look more appealing–it can also extend the life span of the materials by several years. Luckily, most modern siding products are extremely easy to clean; just give them a quick brush with some soap and water to get grime and dirt off the surface. You can also use a pressure washer. However, take care not to set the pressure too high or hold the nozzle too close, or your siding could be damaged.
Other Parts of Your Home
You can avoid the hassle of an untimely siding repair by making sure that any other components that affect your siding are well maintained as well. This means ensuring that your gutters and all exterior faucets are clean, in good condition and free of problems.
