Upgrading your Denver home’s siding is an exciting endeavor. New siding is a great way to freshen up the exterior of your home and give it a clean, polished look. However, it’s important to go into your siding project prepared with the right mindset. Installing new siding is a big deal, so you probably want to know exactly what you’re getting into before you start.

How to Prepare for Your Siding Denver Project

If you’ve made the decision to install new siding for your Denver home, congratulations! You’re going to love the way your home looks after it has fresh siding and trim in place. Here are some tips and bits of advice you can follow to prepare for your upcoming project:

Prepare for Things to Get Messy

Replacing siding requires a lot of construction. You can expect some noise and mess around your home during this time. However, don’t worry, the process will be over soon enough and you can get to enjoying the home of your dreams. In the meantime, plan on having a dumpster in front of your home and removing pictures and paintings from your walls.

Leave Wiggle Room in Your Budget

New siding is a major upgrade. It’s certainly rewarding, but you should also know that, just like any other home improvement project, unexpected things sometimes happen. That’s why it’s always a good idea to leave extra room in your budget for unexpected costs like asbestos removal or water damage repair.

Plan to Park Elsewhere

Unless you’ve purchased pre-finished siding, such as James Hardie or prefinished LP SmartSide, you’ll have to have your home painted once your siding is finished being installed. In this case, you’ll want to plan on parking a decent distance away from your home to avoid any paint being accidentally sprayed on your beautiful vehicle.
