While a wooden exterior is very attractive, it does involve more maintenance. Fortunately, vinyl siding now comes in styles that look as authentic as real wood. Available in a wide range of colors and designed to mimic everything from real wood to cedar shake, vinyl siding can easily mesh with any new or existing home exterior.
Vinyl siding has been around for over 50 years and was introduced as a replacement for aluminum siding. Early vinyl wasn’t without its faults; it cracked, warped and faded. But now with huge gains in vinyl material compounds, along with sophisticated vinyl siding installation techniques, vinyl has gained over 32 percent of the nation’s siding market.
While over an extended period of time vinyl siding will fade slightly there really isn’t a great deal of maintenance involved. Wash on a regular basis to remove any dirt, mold or mildew that may have accumulated using nothing more than a soft brush and vinegar/water solution. Rinse thoroughly and that’s it. Most vinyl manufacturers don’t recommend using a power washer as the force of the water could possibly damage the panels and drive water behind them.
