Are you in the market for new vinyl siding in Asheville, North Carolina? Upgrading your home’s exterior is one of the most dramatic ways to enhance your home and increase its value. However, one of the main concerns that Asheville homeowners have is required maintenance for their new siding. New exterior siding is an investment, and caring for the exterior of your home keeps it looking good as new throughout the years.

When you choose vinyl siding in Asheville from Universal Windows Direct, homeowners will have very little worry with maintenance. However, here are some quick tips to cleaning your vinyl siding:

  • Vinyl siding is one of the lowest maintenance options on the market for exterior siding. A major advantage to choosing vinyl siding in Asheville is that it is not prone to rotting, peeling, warping, or rusting.
  • This is also the reason why vinyl siding is a much better choice than wood exterior siding. Wood siding requires a lot of maintenance over the years, including sanding, staining, and painting. Wood siding is also prone to rot, which can be very costly to repair or replace.
  • Maintaining your vinyl siding is very simple. You can use a soft cloth or a long-handled, soft bristle brush. If your vinyl siding is textured (such as cedar shakes that are designed to look like real wood), it’s recommended to only use a soft bristle brush. That way you can get into the grooves of the wood grain patterns to keep them free of stains.
  • If your vinyl siding is covered with moderate atmospheric dirt, you can use a garden hose with a brush such as a car washing brush.
  • If the exterior of your home is heavily soiled with atmospheric dirt, you can use 1/3 cup of detergent, 2/3 cup of trisodium phosphate, and 1 gallon of water.
  • Once you apply this solution to your vinyl siding, it will easily wipe away.

The good news is that rain water is generally enough to keep your vinyl siding clean. If you have questions about vinyl siding maintenance or would like to upgrade your home, contact us for an estimate.
