Landscaping Tips to Prevent Siding Damage

Do you know what the exterior of your home says about you? It’s not just about keeping your home looking good, it also has an impact on its overall value. The landscaping around your home affects how the siding looks and weathers over time. Here are a few ways landscaping affects siding.

Type of Landscaping

The type of landscaping can create additional wear and tear on sidings. If you have a lot of trees around your home, their branches can scrape against the siding, causing damage.

Finally, the type of landscaping you have can affect the amount of sunlight that hits your siding. If you have a lot of trees shading your home, for example, it can make it harder for the sun to penetrate.

The Way You Maintain Your Landscaping

If you don’t trim back your trees and shrubs, their branches can scrape against the siding, causing damage. If you don’t remove dead leaves and debris from your landscaping, they can also blow against your siding and stick to it and cause staining.

Type of Drainage 

When it comes to protecting your home, drainage is one of the most important factors. You not only need to worry about how water or weather will drain from your roof but also how it will affect your siding and where it will meet the ground. Common gutters may be helping your roof, but drip down your siding and across your landscaping. This can leave debris, wear, and water stains on your siding. It can also cause issues as drainage runs out and onto landscaping causing splatter. 

Finding the proper drainage means considering your roof, siding, and landscaping when you install it.
