With fall upon us and winter not far behind, now is a good time to tackle a few maintenance tasks around your home. In fact, fall is the perfect time to conduct maintenance on your siding.
Today, siding contractor V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding recommends four siding maintenance tasks to prioritize this fall.
Inspection – If you want to avoid being caught off guard by costly siding replacement or repair projects, invest in routine siding inspections. Make sure to get this done during the fall, as this gives you time to identify and address any damage before harsher winter weather arrives.
Repairs – If the siding inspection reveals damage, take advantage of the mild fall weather to have the necessary repairs done. By doing so, not only will you be able to keep your home more comfortable during the winter, but you can also prolong your siding’s lifespan and maximize its energy efficiency.
Gutter Cleaning – Poorly maintained gutters can pose a hazard to your siding, and this is especially true in the fall. Leaves that land in your gutters can create a clog, causing moisture to spill over the gutters and drench your siding, leading to rot. To avoid this, clean your gutters or hire a professional to do it for you.
Siding Cleaning – Out of all the siding maintenance tasks, this is the easiest. Simply grab a bucket of warm water and mix it with soap before using a soft bristle brush to remove the dirt and grime from your siding. Afterwards, you can rinse the soap off with a garden hose and your siding will look good as new.
