Now that the vast accumulation of snow has melted and revealed your home again, it is time to survey any damage. This past winter had recording-breaking snowfall that created piles and drifts of snow that were unprecedented for many newer homes. If you have cedar siding, you may notice your shingles are looking dull from exposure to too much snow and ice over the winter. To protect your wood siding from damage now is the time for cedar siding restoration.
Cedar siding is incredibly beautiful when it is maintained, but it is vulnerable to the harsh extremes of weather in Minnesota. The cold, wet weather of winter can cause shingles to swell and soften, allowing the hot summer sun to dry and shrink the wood. This can cause cracking and damage to your siding, as well as destroy the beauty of the wood. Cedar restoration can bring back the beauty of your siding while adding the protection it needs after a long, harsh winter.
Professional Cedar Siding Restoration
Cedar siding is finicky. It can last for decades, with proper maintenance, and is stunning when maintained, but it requires finesse when cleaning, staining and restoring. It must be gently washed to avoid damage to the soft wood and treated to get it ready for stain or sealer. But before you add the stain or stealer, it must dry thoroughly to ensure the protective stain or sealer will properly penetrate.
