Thankfully, vinyl siding does hold up well to the elements. Professionally installed vinyl siding can stand up to cold, heat, and moisture, plus winds up to 110 mph. It does not need to be painted, although it can fade over time. Vinyl siding also resists twisting, warping, moisture, and insect infestations.

Vinyl siding can last for decades if it is properly maintained. Older homes might need siding replacement sooner, but newer vinyl siding materials are designed to last longer.

You can maintain your vinyl siding by cleaning it once a year with a cleaning solution made for this purpose. You can apply it with a long-handled soft bristle brush. Power washers can also do the job, but read the instructions first.
