Excited for your siding replacement project? Getting new siding for your home can be an incredibly rewarding experience. However, it is a major home improvement project that requires plenty of preparation. As the leading siding contractor in the area, we’re here to share a few tips on how to prepare your home for your new siding.
Clear the Driveway
Your home’s driveway will most likely serve as the main staging point for the crew that will be working on your new siding. Make sure it is free of obstructions the day the contractors arrive and start working on your siding. You may also consider parking your car somewhere else for the time being to protect it from scratches or other types of damage.
Trim Nearby Plants
This one’s very similar to prepping for a roofing replacement. If branches or bushes are growing too close to the walls, installing your new siding can be very difficult because those can get in the way of the contractor. Days before work starts on your siding, have nearby leaves and branches trimmed so there’s plenty of room for the siding pros to work with.
Secure Frames and Freestanding Items
Siding installation can cause the opposite side of the wall to vibrate strong enough that it can nudge or push wall-mounted frames and vases placed on furniture too close to the wall. Remove all wall-mounted decor that could accidentally get knocked off or damage while the new siding is being installed.
Sections of your home’s wall could have electrical wiring that could pose a real threat to anyone working on the siding. Because of this, experts recommend having the power cut off near those sections before siding installation services can be carried out by your contractor.
