  • A Guide to the Siding Installation Process

Having an idea about how siding is installed can help you prepare your home for the contractors. Doing some cleanup and observing a few precautionary measures can make the installation quicker and prevent damage to your furniture.

A Guide to the Siding Installation Process

PJ Sullivan Construction, one of the top design-build companies in the state, walks you through the siding installation process and gives some tips on preparing your home for installation work.

Project Timeline 

A qualified contractor should discuss the timeline of the project from the start. The time needed to finish siding installation varies, but generally, it takes about 10 to 14 days. However, siding that needs to be painted may take longer.

Pre-Installation Precautions 

Remove anything that might be damaged by falling debris or tools during the installation. This includes outdoor furniture and your car. Parking your vehicle away from your home will clear up some space in your driveway that contractors can use.

The Removal of the Old Siding 

Whether they’re exterior or bathroom remodeling contractors, contractors will always start a remodeling project by tearing off the old parts, which, in this case, would be siding. The walls might shake during the removal, though. To prevent any breakage inside, remove picture frames and valuables near your wall.

Wall Inspection and Preparation 

The contractor will then look for any signs of water damage as well as any issues that may interfere with the installation of your new siding.

The Siding Installation 

The contractor will now add a layer of insulation to your wall, followed by the new siding.

The Clean-Up of Debris 

It isn’t uncommon for nails to land on your garden during the installation. To help the contractor clean up faster, trim your lawn. Doing so will make it easier for them to find and pick up the nails.

To ensure your new siding is properly installed, only hire qualified contractors like PJ Sullivan Construction.

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
