How to Prepare Your Home for a Siding Installation

Replacing your siding is a major home improvement project. Once you have hired a siding contractor for the job and purchased your new siding boards, the next thing to do is to prepare your home before the installers arrive. Fortunately, doing so can be simple. 

How to Prepare Your Home for a Siding Installation

Trim the Landscaping

Beautiful landscaping on your property can boost your curb appeal, but trees and shrubs may get in the way during the siding installation. Thus, be sure to trim or tie them back, and cut the grass short. Doing so can make it easier for the siding installation team to pick up any stray nails or staples. You should also take the time to cover your flower bed or garden with a drop cloth or tarp to keep them from getting damaged. 

Clear Your Exteriors

Since your siding contractor needs to access all parts of the exterior wall, it’s best to clear your property and remove outdoor furniture and other items on your lawn or patio. The team may also need extra lawn space to store new material and dumpsters to discard your old siding boards. If you have lawn decorations or removable solar lights near the pathway, consider moving them temporarily to a safe place to prevent damage. 

Remove Wall Fixtures

During the siding installation, the walls inside your home may vibrate, causing wall fixtures to fall. Thus, remove framed photos, art pieces, hanging plants and other fixtures ahead of time. Additionally, it’s also a good idea to remove fragile items that may fall from shelves and tables as removing the old siding and installing the new one can cause some shaking. You should also cover other pieces of furniture in your home with dust covers to prevent dust from circulating.

With proper preparation, a siding replacement project can be as smooth-sailing and hassle-free as possible.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
