Stages of Siding Replacement Projects

Thinking about a new siding installation but not sure about the process? Here are three major parts of any siding replacement project so you know what to expect.

Step One: Removal of the Original Siding

The process typically begins with removing all of the existing siding. The siding contractor will have all the necessary tools to make this happen efficiently, after which, your old siding will be hauled away.Depending on the size of the team of siding contractors you hire, and weather permitting, all of the old siding may be removed at once before your new siding installation begins. Otherwise, the new siding can be installed while the old siding removal takes place to complete one section of the home at a time.

Step Two: Sheathing Replacement

The sheathing is a protective layer that sits under the siding to provide added insulation, increased wall strength, and a place to attach the siding. After removing your existing siding, the siding contractors will determine the condition of the sheathing beneath. If any damage is found, it will be replaced.

Step Three: New Siding Installation

The last thing that needs to happen for a siding replacement project is the new siding installation. This alone can take two or three days. For this, it’s important to prepare if needed, which means leaving room for the siding contractors to work and having space to pile the new siding for easy access. You may have room on your driveway, in your backyard, or on the lawn, but the siding will not be there long enough to cause any lawn damage. From beginning to end, your siding replacement project can take anywhere from two to seven days, depending on the size of your project.
