The ultimate benefit of hiring a siding company is convenience. However, this doesn’t mean you no longer have a role to play to ensure the success of your project. You may not be the one hammering the nails, but there are things you’d do to make life way easier for everyone.
When doing your siding installation, Homecraft recommends the following to get the best from your contractor:
Clear The Work Area
De-cluttering the job site is a huge time-saver. Remove all kinds of obstruction that could get in the way where the siding would be put up. The work areas must be free of ornaments, garden hoses, articles of furniture, and any other items you could safely move by installation day. Things affixed near your walls, like a satellite dish, must be temporarily relocated as well. If you have light decorations outside as well as window shutters and frost boards, kindly take them off until the job is complete.
Although a vinyl siding replacement is an exterior home project, don’t forget the indoor items hanging on your walls. It’s best to take them off because they might fall down during construction.
Establish Clear Communication
Good homeowner-contractor communication is the secret behind successful siding projects. More than just exchanging numbers, scheduling regular meetings is paramount. If you have to work, make it a point to speak in person with the project’s on-site supervisor for progress reports. It’s also a great opportunity to raise and clarify concerns between both parties.
