Watch This Video Before Your Siding Services
Before putting up siding on your house, there are some things you need to do. The video “Siding Prep” shows the prep work required before siding services. Without doing the prep work, the siding won’t last as long.
The more care you take before putting up your new exterior, the better it’ll look for years to come.
Siding prep work is an essential step in preparing for installing siding on a property so that it can match the style requested by the homeowner. It is where contractors either install weather stripping or begin taking measurements and planning other prep work like window placement and trimming. Siding prep work may also involve siding repairs, new weather stripping, and vertical sealing, depending on the type of siding you have chosen.
You want your new home to have a nice smooth look, but you also don’t want to skip out on any safety precautions. It is vital to install weather stripping on the exterior doors, windows, and vents. Weather stripping is essential in keeping moisture from entering the home when there is heavy rain or direct sunlight. You can also use it to protect homes against insects during the summer months.
During an installation, sometimes the trim or sills are damaged and need to be replaced to protect your home from leaks and other potential problems from water damage. It is a job you can do yourself, or a contractor can take care of it.
