Learn How to Extend the Life of Your Home’s Vinyl Siding
Keep It Clean
When planting new trees and shrubs, try to give your home a wide enough berth that as the tree grows, not even the strongest wind can make it bend and smack your siding. In addition, you can trim existing trees and shrubs to cause less damage.
Another way that trees and shrubs cause damage is through moisture. Being alive, this greenery attracts and retains moisture. Sustained moisture isn’t great for siding. If a branch rests against siding, moisture will get trapped on the siding, creating a perfect home for mold and mildew. Water damage can also happen in this scenario. You can eliminate this problem by trimming trees and shrubs regularly to ensure they don’t touch the siding.
