One good way to improve your home’s curb appeal, protection and energy efficiency is with a siding replacement. Your siding covers up to 40% of your home’s exterior so any changes you make to it will surely be noticeable. A major project like this will also affect a large part of your home so it’s important to prepare adequately to avoid any untoward incidents.
As always, you want to choose trustworthy siding installation contractors to ensure that the project goes without any major issues. However, it’s still helpful to make sure that the rest of your home will be protected as workers put up your new siding.
Here are some ways our experts at Masters Roofing suggest to get your home ready for a siding replacement:
Out of the Way
Downspouts, windows, shutters and other exterior fixtures can get in the way of the installation. Before the contractors arrive, take some time to remove these parts from the areas where the work will happen. You should also move any other part of your yard or garden that might get damaged while the workers are doing their job.
Upgrade Your Insulation
This is not necessarily a way to prepare your home, but replacing your siding can be a good opportunity to add or improve the insulation in your walls. Talk to your contractor about installing a new layer of insulating sheathing before the new siding boards are put in place.
Finish With Flair
Brand-new siding boards can enhance your curb appeal but consider getting an exterior painting service to really boost the looks of your home. In fact, if you’re only replacing your siding just for appeal alone, it may be a better idea to have them repainted a new color instead.
