Siding replacement will enhance your home’s protection against the elements. It will significantly improve your property’s curb appeal and energy efficiency. Before your contractor arrives and begins the work, you need to prepare your humble abode.
Here’s how to get ready for your exterior home remodeling project.
Prepare Your Outdoor Area
Eliminate things outside your home that can get in the way of workers. Move your outdoor furniture, gardening tools and potted plants to a safe place like your shed or garage. Cover your garden with a tarp or plastic cover for protection against dust and debris. It might also be necessary to trim trees with overhanging branches and cut the grass.
Clear Your Interior Walls
Your walls may vibrate as workers remove your old siding and install the new material. Remove picture frames, paintings, mirrors and other items from your wall. It’s also a good idea to move furniture away from the walls. If you have breakable items on wall-mounted shelves, relocate them as well.
Make Plans for Kids and Pets
Major home improvements, like kitchen renovation and siding replacement, can involve a lot of noise and mess. Consider keeping children and pets away from the house during the project. You can have them stay with friends or family until the construction and cleanup are complete.
Relocate Your Vehicles
Usually, your siding will arrive in your home one to two days before your project starts. You might need to park your car in a different location to have space for storing your new siding. It’s also necessary to have an area in your driveway for a dumpster.
