Maintaining Your Home’s Siding

Preserve Beauty and Longevity with Regular Cleaning

Regardless of the siding option you choose, regular cleaning is essential to maintain its beauty and longevity. At The Exteriors Company, we recommend rinsing your siding with a light detergent annually. This simple yet effective practice allows you to identify and address any potential issues before they escalate, ensuring your siding remains in pristine condition for years to come.

Enhance Your Siding’s Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a priority in our siding installations. During every siding installation, we use Tyvek moisture barriers to prevent insulation damage and recommend insulated siding or added insulation layers to boost energy performance. Our experts seal gaps during installation to minimize air leaks.

By choosing the right energy-efficient siding solution and ensuring proper installation, you’ll enjoy a comfortable home while reducing utility costs and your environmental impact.

Recognize When Your Siding Needs to be Replaced

While proper maintenance can extend the lifespan of your siding, there may come a time when replacement is necessary. Keep an eye out for the following signs that your siding may need to be replaced:

  • Cracks
  • Warping
  • Rot
  • Mold growth
  • Excessive fading
  • Spike in energy bills
  • Water damage

If you notice any of these issues, address them promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the structural integrity of your home.
