If you are looking to improve the aesthetics of the outside of your home, frequently the first things that are thought of are roof and siding repair. Roof repair is less visible, so siding jumps to the top of the to-do list. If you are dealing with vinyl siding, the grunge that accumulates over time can make the house look old and broken down, even though both the house and the siding are in perfect working condition. The solution is to clean rather than replace, and the cleaning process is easier than you might think.
All that is required for standard cleaning is soap and water. Using an all-purpose cleaner and warm water does the trick, and doesn’t require any special chemicals or cleaners. Using a brush with soft bristles, apply it to and scrub the entire length of each panel. Begin with the lower panels and work your way up in order to reduce or eliminate streaking. After each panel is complete, rinse it with a garden hose before moving on to the next. When done yearly this can keep your siding looking new for years.
For more stubborn spots such as tar, paint drips, pencil, or pen marks, the best option is to use a nonabrasive cleaner or non metallic scrub pad. If you are facing mold or mildew stains, using either bleach or ammonia will do the trick. If using bleach, use a mixture of bleach and water at a ratio of 1:4 (i.e., one cup bleach to four cups water). Remember to never mix bleach and ammonia. As well, never use nail polish remover, paint thinner, paint remover, spot removers, furniture cleaners, or straight chlorine bleach on siding made of vinyl, as these substances can damage the surface of the siding.
The siding material of choice in Virginia is vinyl, and this is especially true in the Fairfax County area. Because of the neat look and durability, it stands up to the moderate levels of humidity and the increased amount of rainfall, while still maintaining its clean, new look. Image has a lot to do with the pricing of a home when it is on the market, and the effort to project a good image in Fairfax County is paying off. The housing market bottomed out in the end of 2008 to the first part of 2009, and has since been consistently on the rise. As of five years ago, there was a fair bit of negotiation that took place to determine the final selling price, but over the last several years that has become less and less commonplace. Sellers know that they hold valuable real estate in the county, and are expecting buyers to come closer to the asking price.
Usually, the final price is within five percent of the asking price, and in quick transactions, sellers are getting the full price and, at times, more. Prices are higher, volume is higher, and the average amount of days on the market is significantly shorter.
