Four Ways to Care for Your Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding is tough, but it’s not indestructible. It’s durable enough to stand up to Kansas City’s hot summer days, but you should always make sure that heat sources such as barbeques and fire pits are a safe distance away from your home. While nobody wants heat-damaged siding, a fire is a much more serious concern. If you have a smaller back deck, then you may want to consider investing in James Hardie siding, which is both fireproof and incredibly durable as a whole.
Maintaining your siding’s luster couldn’t be easier, as you only need to wash it once or twice each year. Prepare a mixture of warm, soapy water and a long-handled brush and gently scrub the sides of your home. If a certain area proves difficult to clean, then you can either hire a professional or rent a power washer.
Take some time to inspect your siding after each season comes to an end. The weather may have damaged some of your panels, and you don’t want to have to deal with an insect infestation or pay to repair water damage. Look for areas that are beginning to bubble, or that have become discolored or cracked. If the damage is extensive, then investing in a vinyl siding installation may be more cost-effective than purchasing repairs.
Be Wary of Painting
While you can paint vinyl siding, it’s not recommended. Certain kinds of paint will harm your siding beyond repair, ensuring that you pay for both the cost of painting as well as a full siding installation. Instead of wasting your time and money repainting your entire home, come to the Blue Springs Siding and Windows showroom to view all of our home siding options. We can help you find something similar to your home’s current color, or we can help you choose something completely new!
