If you already have vinyl siding, it’s fortunately easy to clean and maintain. To clean your vinyl siding, you can use a washcloth and/or a soft brush along with some water. For tougher stains, you can use mild household cleaning products; just be sure not to use harsh or abrasive cleaning products like bleach and liquid grease removers, as these can end up damaging your vinyl siding.
For tougher stains, you also might want to pressure wash your vinyl siding from time to time. Unless you already have experience using a pressure washer, it’s probably a good idea to have a professional pressure wash your vinyl siding. If done improperly, a pressure washer can damage and/or loosen your vinyl siding.
Sometimes, vinyl siding will get small holes and cracks. A common culprit for this minor damage is stray rocks and debris that your lawn mower or weed eater shoots out at a high speed while you’re doing yard work. Strong winds from storms can cause similar damage as well. For these smaller holes and cracks, you can easily repair them yourself using exterior caulking; just be sure to find one that matches the color of your vinyl siding.
For larger holes and cracks, it’s usually a good idea to have a professional, like our vinyl siding experts at Housetop Roofing, fix the damage for you. If you notice any loose or missing siding after a storm, this is also something that you’ll need professional help with.
Vinyl siding is a great choice for your home’s exterior for a number of reasons. If you’re interested in getting vinyl siding for your home, or if you’d like to repair or replace your existing vinyl siding, give us a call at Housetop Roofing in Raleigh, NC and Wake Forest, NC.
