How to Care for Different Types of Siding

How to Care for Different Types of SidingIf you want to ensure that your siding keeps performing well and looking beautiful for as long as possible, it’s important to keep up with maintenance requirements. While you should always defer to any manufacturer recommendations for the specific brand of siding you have installed, here are some general tips on how to care for different types of siding.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is fairly easy to maintain—it will retain its beauty for many years so long as you keep it clean using a gentle cleanser, a soft cloth, and a hose. It does need to be repainted from time to time, although not nearly as often as wood siding.

Vinyl Siding

Similar to fiber cement siding, vinyl siding usually just needs to be sprayed or wiped down to continue looking great. Unlike many other siding materials, vinyl generally doesn’t need to be repainted, which can save you a considerable amount of time and hassle. One thing you’ll need to keep in mind, though, is that vinyl siding can melt when exposed to high temperatures, so it’s important to keep grills and other heat sources away from the side of your home.

Wood Siding

When cleaning wood siding, make sure to not use a pressure washer, since doing so could damage the cladding. You’ll likely need to update the paint or stain every few years. And because wood siding is particularly vulnerable to moisture infiltration and insect infestations, you’ll need to regularly examine it for signs of damage.
