Spring Cleaning Your Siding
1. Buy, rent or borrow a power washer. Make sure it has a 25 degree nozzle so it won’t damage the siding.
2. Cover lights and electrical outlets with plastic.
3. Cover plants and bushes with drop cloths.
4. Mix a bleach solution (1 part bleach and 9 parts water).
5. Apply a small amount of bleach mixture to heavily mildewed areas and scrub.
6. If the pressure washer has a soap feed, mix a mild solution of water and detergent in a bucket, then place the soap-feed tube in the bucket.
7. Spray home with power washer at a 45-degree angle.
8. Keep nozzle angled away from window.
9. Rinse siding.

One of the Top Home Improvement Projects for 2013
In 2012, Remodeling Magazine ranked new siding as one of the highest ROI of all home improvement projects - and this year is no different. Last year, the projected ROI was 89% and this year it increased up to 96%.
There are several types of siding available:
Vinyl Siding - has been around since the 1960’s to combat the disadvantages of wood and stone siding. It is now the most commonly used type of siding due to many advances in manufacturing technology. Vinyl can be more energy efficient than wood siding. The R Value (energy efficiency value) will help differentiate the many brands and styles.
Foam back Siding - is a newer product with foam core backing which can be bonded or not bonded to the actual siding. This type of siding increases the energy efficiency of your home because the foam core is a barrier of insulation preventing heat loss where the studs of your walls contact the outer wall of the home.
Cement Fiber Siding - is an extremely durable type of siding that is made from cement, sand and wood fibers. It is much thicker than regular vinyl siding and has the ability to be molded in many different shapes and textures, such as wood.
No matter what type of siding you choose it can give your home a major boost to curb its appeal. In addition, carefully selected siding can improve the energy efficiency of the home, resulting in increased comfort and energy savings which drive your ROI even higher.
