How to Prepare Your Home for Siding Installation

How to Prepare Your Home for Siding Installation

So, you have chosen your new siding and signed a contract. As your contractor prepares the materials, you need to prepare your home for the siding replacement. Here are a few steps to take before the installation crew arrives so the project goes smoothly for everyone involved.

Remove the Window Treatments and Other Fixtures.

Go around your home and remove every piece of item that might get in the way of siding installation. This includes window shutters, framed art and photos, and other fixtures on the walls. Do not forget to move your patio furniture and other tools laying around your property as well.

Trim the Trees. 

It is recommended that you keep the trees in your property trimmed with at least 10 feet of clearance from your home. Doing this prevents leaves and pine needles from collecting in your gutters and small animals like squirrels from gaining access to your roof. Shrubs and other parts of the landscaping should be covered during the siding installation.

Park Vehicles Down the Street. 

Whenever your home is having modifications or upgrades, it is important to keep all your vehicles away from the work area to avoid damage. When it comes to siding replacement, parking on the street may be the better option than parking in the garage because it can be difficult to access your driveway if you need to leave your home for any reason.

Make Plans for Children and Pets. 

The noise of siding installation can be distressing to pets, so make sure to keep your pets inside the house. Similarly, children should be informed about the project. It is crucial that they stay away from the site to prevent them from getting hurt.
