A siding replacement job is more than an aesthetic upgrade for your home. Yes, it does contribute to your overall curb appeal, and yes, it can change the way your home looks, but it can also benefit the energy efficiency and safety of your home. As your old siding boards approach the end of their lifespan, it’s important to start readying your home for a potential replacement.
Our experts at Eagle Creek Siding, LLC, recommend making preparations for a siding replacement as early as possible. In addition to making room in the budget for this fairly major home improvement, there are a few other ways to get your home ready to receive its brand-new skin.
Choose the Right Materials
It’s never too early to start exploring material options. A vinyl siding installation is comparatively easy, and the material itself lasts more than 30 years with proper maintenance. On the other hand, wood clapboards are definitely unbeatable in terms of looks, but they require frequent repainting and replacement, as they’re usually less durable than other products.
Choose the Right Contractor
Your siding serves as the first layer of protection your home has against the elements, and whatever material you choose, its performance will only be as good as the quality of its installation. So take your time thoroughly researching siding installers and the services they provide so you can choose the right man for the job.
Choose the Right Time
Exterior renovations are best done when the weather’s clear, so getting the work done in mid -to-late spring or even during the summer is ideal. You also want to choose a schedule that will offer the least disruption to your day-to-day activities, as siding installation and replacement typically lasts for a couple of days, depending on the scale of the project.
