Fall Maintenance Tips: Taking Care of Your Siding
With autumn well on its way, most homeowners are probably busy getting their homes ready for the chilly months ahead. And if you’re still not doing anything to winterize your home, you should definitely get started. After all, you wouldn’t want any problems to pop up at the height of the winter season.
One component of your home exterior that you would definitely need to check, clean, repair, or replace if necessary is the siding. That’s because it provides an extra layer of protection against the weather. And considering that your siding is one of the most visible parts of your home exterior, it is also a vital part of its curb appeal.
Taking care of your siding in Alexandria, VA and the surrounding areas is as easy as following these simple tips:
- Siding Inspection. Inspect every panel of your siding. Make sure that there are no damaged, missing, or loose parts, particularly in the corner of your house. If you see any problems, contact your reliable siding contractor to either repair them or replace them altogether, depending on the severity of the damage.
- Siding Cleaning. Rinse loose dirt and debris off your siding using a garden hose. Mix ½ cup of trisodium phosphate (available at grocery stores or hardware stores) with 1 gallon of warm water. Using this cleaning solution, scrub off stubborn dirt and stains with a soft-bristled brush attached to a long handle. Work from the top to the bottom part of your siding to avoid streaking. Make sure to rinse frequently.
