The year’s close to ending—is your siding still intact? With a little end-of-the year TLC, you can help extend the life of your siding so it can protect your home not just for next year but also for the many years to come. Here are some tips:
Tip 1: Perform a siding inspection. Your siding has been through a lot this year, so make sure you check it for possible damage. Look for cracked caulking as well as peeling or flaking paint. A thorough inspection also provides the opportunity to spot minor issues before they snowball into bigger problems down the road. Remember, prevention is the key to keeping your siding in top shape.
Tip 2: Initiate repairs. It’s important to have issues fixed before you start cleaning. Repairing siding is no easy job. It often involves removing the damaged part while keeping the surrounding siding intact. Unless you have the expertise, you’d better hire professionals to do it. They will also know when something is unsalvageable and help you with new siding installation in Minneapolis and surrounding areas.
Tip 3: Clean it up! Whatever the material of your siding may be, it will benefit from a thorough cleanup. Scrub it with a mixture of water and trisodium phosphate to remove grime, mold, and mildew. To avoid streaking, work on the siding from top to bottom. Always wear eye protection for your safety and avoid splashing the mixture on nearby plants.
