Just like your roofing system, your home’s exterior siding must be given the utmost care and attention every once in a while. Today, Mobley Brothers Roofing and Renovation, your local siding and roofing contractor, offers tips for taking care of your siding this fall.
Inspect Your Siding
Autumn weather presents the perfect opportunity to perform a thorough inspection of your home’s siding. Exposure to the elements can slowly deteriorate the material, resulting in damage. With the previous months taking a toll on your siding, it may have incurred cracks, holes, unevenness, rot or mold. Catching these signs of trouble before winter sets in can help you save time, money and stress.
Carry Out the Necessary Repairs
Once you’ve identified the damage to your exterior siding, don’t delay. It can worsen if left unaddressed, especially during the winter months. Take action as soon as you can by hiring a local siding professional who can carry out the necessary repairs. Having issues fixed while they are still small can help prolong the siding material’s service life and efficiency.
Clean your Gutters
Any roofing contractor would remind homeowners about cleaning and maintaining gutters. Do this in the fall and you protect your siding from moisture damage. By removing autumn leaves, dust, dirt and other debris from your gutter system, you ensure the proper flow of water away from your property.
Replace the Damaged Siding
Sometimes, the damage to the siding could be too extensive that repairs no longer solve the issues. Consider a siding replacement if that is the case. Fortunately, our siding pros offer a variety of siding options to suit your preferences and budget. With new siding, you improve your home’s curb appeal, energy efficiency and protection against the elements.
