Below are some reasons for their recommendations.

Vinyl Siding Colour

Colour can influence how often you will clean your siding. White vinyl siding looks great when it is clean but it doesn’t stay clean for long. It may require cleaning more than once a year. Dark shades like ,vibrant red and dark brown also look good though they also show a lot of dirt. Shades of off white like grey ,beige ,sage and light blue appealing to the eye and show much less dirt than stark white or the darker shades.


Sidings of houses located near a farm or near a dirt road, may need to be washed twice a year in spring and late fall.
