The Siding Installation Process: What You Need to Know

Doing a bit of clean-up around your home before the installation of your new siding can make the process faster and smoother. Colonial Remodeling, LLC, one of the top home remodeling contractors in the state, walks you through the siding installation process and shares tips on how to make the process faster below.

The Project Timeline

The time it takes to finish the siding installation varies. But in general, it should take about 10 to 14 days, although it may take longer if the siding needs to be painted. Your contractor should discuss this with you beforehand.

Preparations for Installation

Remove outdoor furniture or garden equipment that may be damaged by falling debris during siding installation. You should also park your vehicles away from your home to prevent damage and to free up more space for the contractor.

Removal of the Old Siding

The walls might shake while the old siding is being removed. Remove picture frames and other valuables near your walls to prevent damage.

Wall Inspection and Preparation

During the removal, your contractor will also look for signs of water damage in your wall as well as any complications that might prevent your new siding from being properly installed.

The Installation of New Insulation and Siding

Your contractor will add a layer of insulation to your wall and then install the new siding.

Clean-Up of Construction Debris

The contractor will then pick up any debris that might have been left behind. To make the clean-up faster, trim your grass before the installation begins. This will make it easier for contractors to find nails that may have landed on your lawn.

To ensure your new siding will be properly installed, only hire qualified and experienced contractors, like Colonial Remodeling, LLC. We offer premium siding options, like James Hardie siding, and have been accredited as an Elite Preferred Remodeler by James Hardie, so you can rest easy knowing you’ll receive quality service from us.
