Refresh Paint When Needed

Refresh Paint When Needed

Make it a habit to periodically check your home's paint or siding for peeling paint, damaged siding or mold growth. Spotting and fixing problems early on can help you avoid a costly repair (from water damage, for instance) when it comes time to sell.

Routinely inspect the north side of your home for green mold and mildew, which tend to spread and worsen where there's little sunlight. Keep the growth in check with regular cleaning. The siding can be cleaned with a garden hose, a long-handled brush (like the type used for recreation vehicles) and with regular liquid soap and water. Just be sure to spray down, not up, on your siding to avoid getting water underneath the shingles, which could damage your home.
