Patching Your Vinyl Siding On Your Own

Vinyl siding is a great way to give your home a uniform, neat appearance in a variety of colors. Despite its durability, it is not indestructible. Vinyl siding creates such a consistent look that any cracks, holes or other damage are typically highly visible. Luckily, repairing vinyl siding is a straightforward process that you may even be able to do on your own. This can save you the cost of a Massillon OH vinyl siding repair contractor. When you have your siding installed, make sure that you keep all of the excess siding material and the trimmings from the installation. This will ensure that you have sufficient material to use for patching damage. If your siding is already installed, you are not without options. In fact, you can trim patch material from an out-of-the-way area if you need to. Clean the surface of the vinyl, and make sure that the patch material overlaps the hole. Apply PVC to the patch, and place it over the hole. Once you do this, you can press the patch in place. Hold it still for a few seconds to set, and then let it cure overnight. This will seal the patch to the siding, creating a flawless finish. Clean the area if necessary to get rid of any excess PVC around the edges. Share
