Planning your siding installation project requires consideration of several key variables: from your choice of material to picking a contractor you can rely on to deliver a smooth and flawless installation. In today’s post, A1 Siding & Roofing shares some tips to help you plan effectively for your upcoming siding replacement.
Create a Detailed Budget
What features do you want to add into the home exterior of your dreams? Once you’ve identified what you want for the project, ask yourself if you have the money. Separate your “wants” from your “needs” and prioritize the latter.
If you’re planning to pay upfront, then make sure the money you have on hand is enough to pay for all the expenses. Otherwise, you can look into financing your project. Choose the type of loan that makes the most sense for your project, whether it’s a home equity loan, a home equity line of credit or a cash-out refinance. Once you’ve determined how you’ll be funding the project, you can more effectively budget.
Choose the Right Exterior Remodeler
Only choose a contractor that you know will have your best interests in mind. For your exterior remodel, choose a contractor that specializes in the kind of material you want to install. For example, if you’ve chosen vinyl siding, hire a contractor that has lots of experience working with that material. Be sure to check their portfolio and customer reviews.
Expect the Unexpected
An experienced contractor should be able to anticipate potential obstacles that could cause delays in your project and come up with workarounds. However, no one can control the weather, which is the biggest cause of delays when it comes to siding installation. Try to schedule your project at a time of year when the weather is typically mild–ideally late summer or early fall, but know that there’s always a chance of weather-related delays and plan accordingly.
