Your siding is one of the most important parts of your home since they can improve your home’s aesthetic appeal and energy efficiency.

In today’s post, ARCH Exteriors, LLC, the top roof repair and siding expert shares some important preparation steps you need to take before a siding replacement project.
Hire the Right Installer
Just like any home improvement project, you need to work with the right installer to get the maximum benefits from your replacement project. To find a capable contractor, you have to do thorough research. You can search for reviews or ask local referrals for any contractors they’ve worked with. Don’t forget to ask their experience with them and see if they’ve done a great job replacing their siding. It also helps to get estimates from at least three different contractors to get a general idea of how much the project is going to cost. Lastly, work with a contractor that is licensed and insured.
Study Up on Siding
Before hiring a siding contractor, try to understand the basics of the project so that you can better discuss the replacement with your contractor. This will let you coordinate clearly with your contractor and enable you to communicate your concerns more effectively. Don’t forget to research on some design themes that blend well with your home to enhance its curb appeal.
Protect Your Home
Trim trees and branches that are near your home so that it won’t get in the way of the project, or damage the siding. Also, keep obstructions such as outdoor furniture, tools, or equipment away from the project area. It’s also a good safety measure to shut off your outdoor lighting’s power and use portable light fixtures instead. For your indoors, take down hanging decor such as paintings, mirrors, or photos so that they won’t fall due to the vibrations caused by the replacement.
