Preparing for Your Home’s Siding Makeover
If your siding is looking beat up and faded, it may be time for a change. New siding can increase your home’s value, curb appeal and completely transform its look. Because siding projects take about 1-2 weeks, you will want to get your project done before cold weather sets in.
Here’s some tips to get started!
Start by finding a reputable contractor. Be sure to ask them what types of siding they have experience with.
Next, you’ll want to select what type of siding to use. Remember that the cost of the project is the siding and the labor combined. That’s why we recommend LP SmartSide, which is very easy to work with. In addition to cost, you’ll want to consider the siding’s durability and maintenance needs.
Lastly, you need to choose between primed siding or prefinished siding. Primed siding offers the flexibility to be painted any color you choose, while prefinished siding requires less time and labor. LP SmartSide’s ExpertFinish Siding comes in 16 different colors.
Because it’s an exterior project, siding your home shouldn’t be too invasive or disruptive. Still, there are ways to make the process easier. Clear your yard of furniture and decorations. Cover your flower beds with tarps. Remove picture frames from the walls and secure other breakables that may fall if the house shakes.
