Siding is a non-toxic and non-flammable building material resistant to very high and very low temperatures and a number of other environmental factors. Siding doesn’t change color over time, it doesn’t corrode, crack under the influence of temperature and does not flake off – all of which ensures long-term durability of this solution.
Benefits of siding
Siding’s wide range of colors and the variety of offered styles and trim options allows you to create any architectural project. It’s a great solution for most types of construction and nearly every type of exterior wall – one-story houses, commercial and industrial buildings, garages, sheds, etc. It’s a product that will help you restore old and damaged buildings in a cheap, simple, and effective way.
Siding is a material that is much cheaper than other types of façades. Its high durability and ease of maintenance helps you to avoid troublesome and expensive renovations. However, even though it is very easy to maintain, and most of the time all maintenance treatments are limited to washing with water and regular detergents, there is a few things to keep in mind while taking care of your siding walls.
Vinyl is a soft material, so branches of trees that vigorously hit the siding during strong winds may cause cracks and breakage. In order to avoid this type of damage, it is a good idea to trim trees and shrubs that may ruin your house exterior.
Air pollution, dirt and grime may be firmly adherent, causing a greasy, unsightly layer on your siding walls. This is why your vinyl siding should be washed at least once a year so it is kept in good shape. All you’ll need is a bucket, some soap, a sponge, a brush and a hose. After lightly scrubbing the surface to remove dirt and chemical residues, rinse it with high-pressure water hose.
