Step by Step Process for Installing Siding in Your Home

After speaking to your contractor that provided you with a siding installation estimate, now’s the right time to prepare for the installation. It’s best to understand the process beforehand. Knowing what to expect will help ensure a smooth and high-quality home improvement project. This includes the removal of current siding, prep work, insulation, new siding installation, and finish work. It’s also a good idea to plan for any unforeseeable issues that may cause delays in your siding project.

Prep the Home
Make sure shrubs and trees are trimmed around the house. Cutting the grass will also help when the contractors begin work. It’s a good idea to clear the driveway to allow construction workers and delivery trucks decent access to your home. Keep children and pets away from the construction site…. before, during and immediately after.

Remove Existing Siding and Inspection
Before installing the siding, your contractor will assess the exterior and notify you if anything needs repair. The contractor will check the walls are free from damage, rot or any signs of asbestos. If no damage is present, it makes for a much easier siding project. Sometimes sheathing needs to be replaced if damaged or unusable.

Installing Insulation
When siding is removed, the installation will be removed as well. Therefore, the contractors need to properly insulate the home by adding new insulation before installing the new siding.

Installing the Siding
It’s time to install the new siding to protect your home from the elements. If the siding needs painting or staining, better do so now to add more protection. Depending on the materials used, your siding tools, and level of difficulty differs on the installation process, especially while using fiber cement.

Clean up
Once all siding is installed, and the job is complete, it’s time to clean the work area. And in the final steps, your contractor will remove all debris and trash from the construction site.

Hiring a professional contractor to ensure the siding project is done properly. Obviously, we all want our homes to look aesthetically pleasing and especially for the siding to last for many years. We don’t want a low-quality siding, siding nailed improperly, with too much joint overlap, and improper clearance, etc.
