Siding replacement is a great way to boost your property’s curb appeal and value. If you’re getting new vinyl siding, you must make certain preparations before your contractor arrives. Here’s how to get your home ready for your project.
Prepare Your Yard
Debris and refuse materials can cause damage to your yard. Protect your garden or plants with a tarp or plastic cover before the work begins. If you have trees or shrubs near the house, it’s also best to get them trimmed.
Make Sure Your Outdoor Areas Are Accessible
You want to make sure your outdoor areas are accessible to the installers. Bring your outdoor furnishings and decor to your garage or shed. Keep your driveway clear to have room for the dumpster and refuse materials. It’s also a good idea to temporarily park your car elsewhere to avoid accidental damage from fallen debris.
Secure Your Indoor Spaces
Tearing old siding materials and installing new ones can create vibrations inside your home. They can cause items on your walls to shake and fall. Before the arrival of your siding contractor, remove frames, mirrors and other things that could get knocked off. It’s also a good idea to move breakable items from shelves.
Get Necessary Repairs
During the construction, your contractor might discover problems with the insulation. If this is the case, address them before installing the new materials. It’s the same for rotting components. Doing so will help improve your home’s energy efficiency and ensure your new siding lasts long.
