Your St Paul Park’s home exterior is one of the most important aspects of keeping you and your family safe from outdoor elements like wind, rain, snow and ice.

As experts in home exteriors, Eastern Roofing & Siding is here to offer a few signs that you should call a siding contractor and few tips to keep your siding looking its best.home exteriors

When you had your siding installed, if it was not done correctly, then it can warp or buckle. This is usually a result of siding that was nailed too tightly onto the side of your home. This may mean it’s time to hire professional siding contractors to replace your siding and spruce up your home exterior.

How often do you have to have your home’s siding repainted? If it’s every five to six years, then you should consider calling a siding contractor like us to replace it. Siding that is still in good shape should keep its color for at least eight to ten years. If the paint on your siding is peeling, flaking or chipping away, give our home exteriors experts a call.

When it comes to cleaning your home exterior, there are two different ways to get the job done. First, hand washing. This is a long and involved process and not always the easiest. Get a bucket of warm water, some mild soap and a brush with stiff bristles and a long handle. Simply dip the brush into the bucket of water (after adding the soap in) and start scrubbing. You can rinse the siding off with a hose.

Power washing is another great way to make your home’s siding nice and clean. Power washing should be used sparingly with pressed board siding. But if you have vinyl siding or a similar material, power washing should work just fine.

Do you see siding that is rotted, loose, falling off of your house or that looks like it is in a state of disrepair? If you see any siding that looks like its seen better days, then you should call us and we can send a siding contractor out.
