Installing new siding can significantly improve the look and durability of your home. Whether you’re replacing old siding or installing a new one for the first time, preparing your home for the job is crucial. In this blog post, V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding Inc explains how to prepare your home for a siding installation project.
Clear the Work Area
Before beginning a siding installation job, it is important to clear the area of any furniture, debris and other items that could be in the way. Remove plants or other outdoor objects from your yard that could hinder the crew when working. Ensure the area is free of items on the roof that could damage the new siding.
Protect Items Inside Your Home
Before starting the installation, make sure to protect fragile items in your home, including objects hanging on the wall and decorations made of porcelain. Keep them in a safe place for a while so they don’t get knocked over because of the possible vibrations caused by the removal of the old siding.
Create Access Paths
Create paths to ensure easy access for the siding installation team. Ensure that walkways or stairs leading to the siding installation area are clear. Relocate vehicles that might be in the way of the crew to avoid potential damage.
If you have pets, secure them while the siding installation team is around. Provide a safe place for them to stay, such as a separate room or an outdoor enclosure. This will ensure they don’t interfere with the siding installation process and prevent potential injuries.
Disconnect Outdoor Fixtures
Disconnect outdoor fixtures such as lights, fans and other items. This will ensure that they don’t get damaged while the pros are working on your siding. Unplug electrical items and turn off the power to the area so there is no risk of electrocution.
