A siding replacement project is a worthy home improvement task. However, it’s also a significant project. If you’re a first-time homeowner, it can be a bit overwhelming to do. Thankfully, experts say that so long as you know what to expect out of the project, you should be able to handle it just fine.
Here’s what you should expect from siding replacement projects.
When you’re having your home’s siding replaced, one thing you should expect from the project is that it can take a while to complete, especially if you have a large home. In fact, experts say that while most siding projects take 10 to 14 days to complete, the size of your home and number of stories as well as the terrain can easily impact your installation timeline. If your siding requires additional painting, you can also expect the replacement project to take even longer than usual to complete.
Steps and Procedures
Apart from the length, you should also know what to expect when it comes to the installation itself. As usual, your siding experts will remove the old siding system that’s attached to your home. Afterwards, you can expect them to begin examining your wall to determine its structural integrity. If there’s nothing wrong with it, they’ll move forward with the installation of the new insulation to ensure that your home can remain warm and comfortable all year round. Once that’s done, your new siding will be installed, finally completing the project.
Of course, if you’re having a new siding system installed on your home, your contractors will also inspect your walls for any possible problems. Usually, these potential problems include water damage, rot, sheathing issues or even traces of asbestos. As these are problems that must be dealt with before the new siding is installed, you can expect the overall costs of your siding replacement project to increase as well.
