Siding replacement is a big undertaking that requires careful preparation. Whether you’re installing fiber cement siding, vinyl siding or another type of siding, it’s important to do your research and make the right preparations before installation day.
Here are a few tips for preparing for a siding replacement:
1. Select the Right Contractor for the Job
The abilities of the contractor you choose will have a significant impact on the success of your home improvement project. Make sure that you hire a reputable contractor with a license, relevant certifications, years of experience and a solid track record of providing excellent customer service.
Aside from finding the right siding contractor, you also need to learn more about the planned siding project. Fire up your search engine and do some research on the different types of siding that are available. There are plenty of different materials, profiles, colors and textures to choose from. Keep in mind that researching the details helps you better coordinate with the contractor regarding your siding project. Consider keeping a file of design ideas you like so you can show your contractor photos as you plan your project together.
3. Prepare the Work Area
As a homeowner, you need to prepare your home for the upcoming siding project. Make sure to trim any large trees near the exterior walls where the new siding will be installed. This is to prevent them from getting in the way and potentially scratching the siding material. You also need to remove any outdoor furniture, lawn ornaments or garden hoses from the job site. It will also be helpful if you switch off the power to your outdoor lights and temporarily put away your light fixtures.
