Siding Maintenance Tips for the Winter

Siding | Most homeowners call on their local roofing contractors for maintenance during the winter months, but the top of your home isn’t the only place that’s susceptible to damage. Siding can be just as vulnerable as roofing. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to inspect and keep it functioning its best this winter. Here’s how.

Check for Signs of Damage

Nothing ruins faster than water, and the risk of infiltration is at its highest during the winter. You can periodically check for water damage by inspecting the spaces where the siding meets corner moldings, windows, and doors. Look for caulking that is:

  • Cracking
  • Gapping
  • Missing
  • Pulling away

Any of these signs may indicate you have water damage and need repairs.

Clean and Rinse

If you know it is in great shape, feel free to clean it at least once a year. Cleaning may sound redundant with winter snowfall, but it’s a great way to lift mildew, grime, and other debris no matter what time of year it is. Allow yourself a weekend to do the job. Use a bucket full of warm water, soap, and 1/2 cup of trisodium phosphate along with a soft-bristled brush. Work from top to bottom in 10-foot sections and rinse often. – A1 Roofing
