What you need to know about maintaining vinyl siding
There is a reason why vinyl is considered to be the best material as a siding option. It does not rot like wood and can be cleaned easily with just water and soap. Plus, it does not need to be painted or stained to maintain a pristine look either. However, before having it installed, you need to know a couple of things about it first such as:
- You need to clean your vinyl siding at least once each year to make it last for years. All you will need is a sponge or a soft brush as well as soap and water. Rinse and clean off the suds with water. This is necessary especially if your home is located near traffic. All those exhaust fumes from passing cars will make that material grungy over time. The yearly scouring will also get rid of mildew and keep your siding fresh.
- The color of siding does not wear away with time because it penetrates the material itself. You can always have it painted if you don’t like the shade though. However, if you paint it once, it will need to be re-painted again to hide peeling layers.
- Vinyl siding can rupture with shrubbery so make sure that you don’t plant anything near it. If it gets damaged badly, you will need to replace it.
