So you have finally decided to push through with a siding replacement project for your home. You have one goal and it is to efficiently and effectively finish the project. Fortunately, Polk Contracting, Inc., the expert on residential roofing service, siding, and other home renovations has you covered. In this post, we will walk you through the entire process, starting with preparations to expectations during the entire project.
For a stress-free project, you need to prepare not just yourself but your home and property. Clear your interior and exterior walls of items that hang and lean on them. This is for safety and to prevent unnecessary clutter. Keep your outdoor walls visible with a working space for the crew. It will also help to prepare a power outlet accessible for their tools.
Before construction, your siding and roofing contractor will usually deliver the new siding a few days before installation. The crew will prefer the materials to be as close as possible to your home. The crew may also deliver a dumpster together with the siding materials. Depending on your area, a permit may be required but don’t worry because you discuss any arrangement with the crew.
Once the crew arrives to start the project, they will survey your property first and then set up a workstation. It is important to be safe during the side replacement process. The crew should clean up as they work, as it will be messy. Be careful of the ground when walking near the renovation area. Warn your neighbors too, if they tend to walk near your home. The crew may also discover other things to repair during the project. These unexpected concerns may be best to fix before the new siding is fully installed. You may coordinate further with the crew to address the issues better.
Newly Replaced Siding
When the repairs are made, the crew of your insurance restoration contractor may replace your weather-resistant barrier for an improved water resistance system to your home structure. Then they will finally install your new siding. The project may last from 7 to 14 days depending on the size or structure of your home. After the installation, inspect your new siding and take note of any concerns. Feel free to get in touch with your contractor if you notice any issues.
