Whether you are replacing your siding to address a practical issue or to improve your home’s curb appeal, planning is an important step to take to ensure the success of your project. There are various factors that can create challenges during siding replacement. But with proper planning, you can anticipate some of these problems and have more realistic expectations.
Mass-Tech Roofing and Building Co., a reputable siding and roofing company, shares tips on how you can prepare your home for siding replacement.
Preparing Your Home
Typically, when there are no structural issues to consider, most of the work will be outdoors. In this case, you should remove all outdoor furniture before the job starts. If there are plant boxes in your outdoor spaces, these could get in the way of the siding installers. Better move them to another area too. Check the trees surrounding your property, and trim the branches so that they won’t disrupt or affect the workers.
Much like the preparations for roof replacement, you should also have a look at your interior and think of how it will be affected by the construction work. Siding installation usually causes strong vibrations, which can knock frames, art, mirrors, and decor off the wall. Shelves and other furniture placed along the walls should also be moved to prevent damage.
Working With a Contractor
It’s crucial to hire the right contractor for the job, so you have to take your time in getting to know the company you plan on hiring. Apart from the actual installation process, make sure they have full understanding of the process of siding preparation too. This way, you can be further guided during the preparation. Some contractors may also offer their help in preparing your home so that clients can have a hassle-free experience.
