Having siding installed is an exciting process, because you know your home will look fresh and attractive. But you may not know exactly what to expect.
Fortunately, the process of siding installation is straightforward. With a little preparation, you can ensure your home and family are ready for what our expert crew will do when we arrive to install your siding.
Prepare Your Property
Once you decide on the date for your siding installation, you’ll want to take steps ahead of time so that your property is ready when the crew arrives. While these steps may or may not apply to your home and property, be sure to ask your siding contractor to know what they recommend for your home.
The installers will need space to work, and you don’t want to risk inadvertent damage to your property. Plan to:
- Trim trees and bushes away from exterior walls so they won’t get in the way or scratch your siding.
- Move anything that currently blocks access to exterior walls, such as firewood, garden hoses, toys, etc.
- Clear away breakables, such as patio furniture and planters.
- Cut grass short to make it easier for the siding team to spot and safely remove nails and other debris.
- Park away from your home to avoid accidental damage to your vehicles.
Siding installation can cause interior walls to tremble. The shaking may be minor, but it can still affect your possessions.
- Remove wall hangings, especially breakables such as photo frames.
