Avoid delays, and ensure high-quality results during your siding installation project by preparing your home before the contractors arrive. After getting an estimate from your siding contractor, don’t forget to ask for the project’s timeline as well.
Here are some tips on how to prepare your home for siding installations.
Trees and shrubs can get in the way of your siding installation. Trim any nearby branches to prevent scraping and to give the installers an unobstructed work area. Then, cover your flower beds with a tarp or drop cloth to protect them from debris.
Obstructions will delay your siding installation. Remove outdoor items, such as planters, gardening tools and outdoor furniture, to give enough space for siding installers to work. Moreover, remove any lawn decorations and other items near the workers’ paths to avoid accidentally damaging them.
Siding installation involves hammering that causes vibrations on your walls. Keep your art pieces, framed photos and décor by removing them from your walls. Make sure to store away any items on your floating shelves and tables, too.
Siding contractors usually need the driveway to park the dumpster. This means you need to move your vehicle to a place that’s far from the jobsite. Doing so will allow your contractor to dispose of your old siding materials faster and keep your car safe from loose debris.
Staying elsewhere during the siding installation has a number of benefits. For instance, it allows you to keep your children and pets away from the work area. You can also focus more on your work by avoiding the noise and mess from siding installation. Furthermore, moving out during the project also lets you cut off external power and prevent any risk of shock to the siding installers.
