With the right maintenance and treatment, you can prolong your siding’s life. Here’s how:
- Inspect your siding every year.
- Use an oil-based primer on the back of your siding. If moisture starts to build up behind the siding, the primer will keep the siding from warping.
- Leave a one-inch gap between the siding and roofing materials. This allows for expanding and contracting during temperature changes.
- Follow the nailing instructions exactly during the installation. Be sure to use the correct type of nails for your siding.
