Whether you are buying a new home, selling your current home, or just making improvements, replacing the siding on your house can have a big effect on the overall look and feel of your home.
Here’s how we approach re-siding a home.
Step 1: Covering up the old problem is rarely the recommended solution. To do the job right, your home’s old siding should be removed in entirety. This allows the new siding to be installed as if it were your original exterior cladding.
Step 2: Before a new exterior is applied, the existing structure should be inspected for moisture damage, mold, termites and rot. Covering your old siding with vinyl siding can potentially prevent serious structural problems from being discovered (refer to Step 1).
Step 3: A weather resistant barrier should be applied to create an extra layer of moisture and wind protection. Most building codes and municipalities require a weather resistant barrier.
Step 4: Your new siding should be installed according to Manufacturer’s guidelines. This includes the proper way to start and hang the siding product as well as proper flashing techniques around all windows and doors to prevent water infiltration.
Step 5: Enjoy your home’s new look!
