Wash It

From the street, your house might look just fine. Close up, it could be another story! Dirt and other debris can wear down the surface of your paint, which will dull the look of your home and make it susceptible to the elements. Every season, use a garden hose with a nozzle to remove dust and spiderwebs all over the surface of your home. Over time, these can build up and cake on, making it next to impossible to remove without some serious elbow grease. It might take a few hours, but you won’t regret it!

Inspect It

Take some time to thoroughly inspect your siding for any pits, cracks, and places where it’s coming away from the house. Even small imperfections can turn into bigger issues when left untreated, and that, of course, leads to greater costs down the road. Patch things up, replace boards, and touch up paint where needed. If you can’t perform these tasks on your own, there are siding companies (like us!) who can help.

Wood Siding

Wood siding and vinyl siding carry a few differences when it comes to maintenance. Where metal and vinyl can go several years between painting, wood needs to be repainted or sealed every five years or so. If you’re in an area where the elements are a bit harsher and wear down the protectant quicker, you’ll have to repaint more often.

Prevention is Key

To keep your home looking wonderful for much longer, prevent issues before they crop up! When you’re storing furniture and landscaping implements, be very careful that you don’t let them bump up against the house. The movement can cause bumps and other damage, but when you store something right up next to the surface, dirt, debris, and even rust can build up between. Take care to leave a few inches between these items and your home.

Who doesn’t love outdoor cooking? It can’t be beat! But smoke and grease from your smoker and grill can do so much damage to the outside of your home. Soot and grease are ridiculously hard to clean off, especially after they’ve had time to build up.
