No product or material exposed to the elements is truly maintenance-free. For example, even your car, which is made of plastic and metal, requires regular maintenance and cleaning to ensure its longevity. The advantage of wood siding is that it's easy to maintain, unlike some synthetic materials, which have to be replaced when damaged. Consult the wood siding maintenance chart prepared by the experts at SIDEX.
However, some finishes require less maintenance than others. See our maintenance-free siding page for product details.
For more information on the benefits of wood siding, see our article on the subject.
Staining frequency varies according to the type of finish. To keep the warranty in force, an additional coat of stain should be applied halfway through the warranty period, at least on south-facing surfaces, since they are more exposed to the sun than other surfaces.
Please note that it is more difficult to recreate the effect of the two-tone factory finish once the siding has been installed. Contact our advisors for more details.
Before staining, in most cases, a simple cleaning is required to remove dirt and dust that could interfere with stain adhesion. No sanding is required.
