A siding replacement helps boost your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency. To ensure a smooth and successful installation, you must prepare your home beforehand. Here are a few tips from Expert Contracting that you should consider.
1. Prep Your Home
Be sure to clear the area around your home before the siding installation team arrives on the agreed-upon date. Remove pieces of furniture and other items that may get in the way of the crew members who’ll be working on your home exteriors. Trim back shrubs and other greenery near the siding as well. Inside your home, take down items hanging on your walls or fragile décor on your cabinets, since they may get knocked down as a result of vibrations caused by the old siding removal. Doing these ahead of time allows your chosen contractor to work on your siding without any disruptions.
2. Address Repairs
It’s likely that the installation team will come across issues like rot or water damage while they remove the old siding. Anticipate these issues beforehand so you can save time and money, and minimize delays. During your initial consultation with your chosen contractor, have them perform an inspection of your home’s exterior so they can detect and address potential problems.
3. Plan for Temporary Inconvenience
Like most major home improvements, a siding replacement can get messy. Expect the project to be noisy as well, since they’ll be removing the old siding panels to make way for the new ones. To minimize disruptions to your daily activities, plan some adjustments accordingly.
