Your home’s exterior is its first line of defense against the natural elements, which is why it’s important that your siding should be maintained properly on a regular basis. But when the time comes for you to plan a major exterior renovation, you’ll need to consult with trusted contractors like Twin Cities Siding Professionals if you want your project to go smoothly.
There are also other problems that you could encounter during the renovation process. Here’s what you’ll need to do to avoid them:
Ensure a Safe Working Environment
As your renovation project starts, ask the contractor for prior notification of excavation and/or demolition times so your pets and children are safe. An orange safety fence should be set up to surround the working site, and hay bales should be positioned to prevent mud, soil and rock slides onto your property or the street.
Be sure to check for drainage problems resulting from changes in grading and paving formerly pebbled or unpaved surfaces. You’ll also need to close windows and move outdoor furnishings and personal vehicles to a safe area. Don’t forget to check on other siding safety procedures as well, especially for removal of lead paint and asbestos, as they need to be carefully followed as well.
Don’t Hinder Accessibility
Make sure to read your local area’s parking ordinance so you know when and where parking is legal. Streets and driveways can’t be blocked, but the delivery trucks that can’t get to the working site will have no choice but to unload from the street. The contractor should be notified beforehand about the days and times you need immediate access to the street; you’ll need to be accommodating when you can, even if it means parking at a distance and waiting patiently.
