New siding is a great addition to your home. It lasts longer than exterior wall paint, is more versatile and doubles as a weather barrier protecting your home’s exterior walls from wind and rain. As with any new investment, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to ensure the success of your project.
In this post, our siding specialists at Twin Cities Siding Professionals discuss what should be on your siding installation checklist.
Before anything else, you should have a list of contractors to work with on your project. Although siding installation seems easy, the performance of your new hardware depends on how well you install it. As such, it’s smarter to have a professional like us install your new siding. Not only do you maximize your new hardware’s operating life span, but you also avoid problems that may affect its overall effectiveness.
Choose Your Siding
There is a wide selection of siding materials to choose from; the most common being wood, vinyl, stucco and fiber cement. Each one has its own individual strengths. Wood, for example, resists heat naturally while vinyl is a great choice if you want more insulation in your home and less maintenance.
At Twin Cities Siding Professionals, we offer high-quality fiber cement siding from James Hardie®. The siding systems we offer are flexible, boast great weather resistance and will offer lifetime value to your home.
Check the Weather
It’s equally important to plan your project ahead of time and check the weather. Avoid rainy and humid days as you risk damaging your new siding even before you actually install it, affecting its performance in the long run. The best time to install new siding is during warm or temperate seasons when weather problems are at a minimum.
