If you're like most homeowners, you already know that curb appeal is an important component in successfully selling a home as well as personal enjoyment of the property -- after all, no one enjoys coming home to a house with an unkempt appearance or having company over to a home with a shabby exterior. Fortunately, those with vinyl siding can keep their homes looking great with the right type of maintenance. Here's what you need to know.
Although vinyl is a tough, durable material that won't rot due to water damage the same way that wood does, shrubbery and trees rubbing up against it are likely to develop scratches, minor cracks, punctures, and even discoloration that can severely decrease its aesthetic appeal. Keep yard vegetation trimmed back to prevent this from happening.
Giving your vinyl siding a thorough cleaning about once per year and spot-cleaning it the rest of the time helps keep your home exterior look pristine and attractive. All you need is a brush with stiff bristles and a bucket full of warm water mixed with a mild detergent. This activity also provides you with the chance to make sure all of your siding is firmly attached.
Storm damage and extreme South Carolina temperatures also cause holes, cracks, and other types of damage that not only presents an unsightly appearance, it creates conditions that make it possible for rodents to access your home interior as well as exposes your home to the elements. Having these damages repaired as quickly as possible prevents further damage and keeps your home exterior looking good.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my "sad" roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
