As summer approaches, it’s time to start considering your summer home maintenance needs. One thing that many homeowners overlook is their siding. As the trusted siding company in Minneapolis and the rest of the Twin Cities area, JTR Roofing is here to provide you with four simple steps to make your summer siding maintenance a breeze!
First, before you do anything else with your siding, it is important to wash it. For most materials, washing with soapy water and rinsing immediately after is a good way to prevent mold, algae and dirt from accumulating on your siding.
Dirty siding can hide issues, so it is important to make sure you are starting with a clean slate before you move on to inspecting your siding!
Once the siding is clean and nothing is hiding away under a layer of dirt, take a walk around your home. While you walk around, pay close attention to your siding – are there any major issues like peeling panels, holes, cracks or signs of animals/pests causing damage? If you answer yes to any of these questions, call JTR Roofing as soon as possible so we can get repairs underway.
Paint or Repair
If you notice any issues, the next step as mentioned above is to give your local siding company, like JTR Roofing, a call so they can come out to fix the problems and prevent further damage.
However, if there are no issues, but you aren’t sure about the appearance of the exterior of your home anymore, you can pursue other renovations such as new exterior paint! Whether you simply don’t like the color or the current paint is peeling (but the siding remains intact), new paint can increase your home’s curb appeal and make it feel brand new once again!
Finally, if your siding is reaching the end of its expected lifespan or has too significant of damage, it’s time to replace it. Luckily, your local siding company will be able to help you out with this process! From picking the right siding option for you to making sure the installation is a success, JTR Roofing will be there each step of the way!
Old siding can cause you to spend more on energy bills and cause long-term damage to your home if not properly maintained or replaced on time. Don’t ignore the importance of siding, and instead make sure to perform these steps annually to ensure that your siding is in the best condition possible!
