The wood that goes under residential siding — exterior sheathing — performs several functions. It adds insulation, waterproofing and structural support for the framing. It also provides a surface on which to nail the siding. The most common sheathing materials include oriented strand board and plywood.
Vinyl siding is manufactured to last a very long time. Warranties for vinyl siding can range from 20-40 years depending on the thickness with many manufacturers now offering lifetime warranties that can be transferred to the next owner.
As the thickness of vinyl siding increases, two things tend to happen: Durability increases and aesthetics improve. Thicker vinyl siding is better able to mimic the profile of wood siding and shingles. However, better looks, quality and longevity come at a cost. That’s why thin siding still exists.
YES, pressure washing absolutely can damage vinyl siding if done incorrectly. Pressure washing is not good to use on any kind of softer surface, and vinyl siding is a hard surface, but it’s not as hard as, say, brick.
Vinyl requires little more than a gentle cleaning once a year or so.
Although vinyl siding can also be cleaned with detergents, Clorox is much more effective for removing stubborn baked-on dirt, soot, stains, mold and mildew. Clorox bleach will not harm vinyl siding as long as it is properly diluted and thoroughly rinsed from the surface.
