Your home’s exterior vinyl siding serves as your home’s skin. This protective outer layer shields your interiors from the harsh elements and keeps your home well-insulated against seasonal temperature changes. Like your skin, it’s important to keep your siding in a good and healthy condition. Over time, minor problems can progress into much bigger issues and there will come a point when your home will need some new siding. Luckily, siding panels are more readily replaceable than actual skin.
Re-siding your home is actually a fairly simple and straightforward home improvement project but many homeowners admit to not knowing the first thing about it. Let our experts at Independent Construction Services show you how to get started on getting new siding for your home.
Research, Research, Research
While our professionals are definitely more than happy to help you find the best siding products, the decisions will ultimately fall on your shoulders. This is why it’s important to have a good idea of what you want (and what you don’t want) even before the project starts. Your research doesn’t need to be complicated. Simply knowing the right materials, styles, as well as the colors and exterior painting service that you will need, is enough to get your ideas rolling.
Define a Budget, and Stick to It
We offer free estimates to help you get a clear picture of how much this home re-siding project would set you back. Costs can be the number one limiting factor when shopping around for siding products but defining a budget during the early stages can help keep you on track every step of the way and minimize surprise additions. It’s typical that the actual final prices are bigger than the budget you set so it helps to bump your final numbers up by 20% to make space for unforeseen costs.
Choose a Good Contractor
Your siding’s performance is only as good as its installation. When it comes to these types of projects, it pays to trust only certified, experienced and licensed contractors to carry them to completion without too many hiccups.
