Replacing your current siding with a new and better one is a great home improvement project worth investing in. In addition to improving your home’s beauty and curb appeal, it also boosts your home’s protection against the elements.
After hiring a contractor for this project and reviewing everything stated in the contract, the next step is to prepare your home. This should be done a few days before the start date. Here are some tips on what you need to do:
Start preparing the outdoors by trimming the grass on your lawn. This way, the pros can easily pick up stray nails and staples using their magnetic nail finder. If you have trees or shrubs planted near your home, be sure to trim the overgrown branches back so they don’t get in the way of the installation. Also, clear away potted plants, patio furniture, and other movable items from the potential work zone. Make sure the driveway is clear as well because it will serve as the staging area for hauling the old siding and delivery of the new siding.
Siding installation does create a mess outside your home, but that doesn’t mean it won’t affect your indoors. The vibrations from removing old siding and installing the new ones may cause nearby valuables to knock off and break. Remove wall hangings like picture frames and pieces of artwork. Move away shelves or tables near your interior walls where fragile decorative items are placed. More importantly, ensure your children and pets are away from the work area.
