Your home is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your life. It’s a place where you create countless memories and is the safe haven for you and your loved ones. Of course, it goes without saying that you want to keep it in pristine condition for as long as you can. One way to achieve this is to ensure that your siding is well-maintained and beautiful.
- Conduct visual inspections: The first step to keep your siding fresh is to visually inspect it and ensure that it looks like the way it should. Keep in mind that damaged siding could potentially hurt other parts of your home as well. Some siding materials are more prone to damage than others. For example, wood siding is particularly susceptible to moisture damage, rotting and insect infestation. Vinyl siding tends to trap moisture inside, which could cause moisture damage. Taking notes of little things like these will save your siding in the long run.
- Apply new paint and sealants to your siding: Having a fresh layer of paint and sealants will make your siding look good as new, keeping it away from damage and deterioration. Additionally, it affects your home’s overall appearance and makes it look attractive, which enhances its curb appeal. The sealants protect your home from weather elements, such as heavy winds, rainfall, searing summer heat and harsh winters.
- Choose the appropriate paint for your siding: Vinyl and fiber cement siding materials are color-treated before installation. This means that they don’t need to be painted down the road. However, if you decide to repaint it in the future, be sure to choose the appropriate paint material for each siding. We recommend high-quality latex paint for vinyl siding and exterior-grade acrylic paint for fiber cement siding.
