So, you’re tired of looking at your old, beaten down siding? Nothing detracts from the appearance of a home more than siding that’s cracked, faded, and badly in need of replacement.

But since you, yourself, are not a construction expert, you’re probably wondering where to start. In this article, we’ll explain how to get started with the siding replacement process for your Centennial home.

How to Prepare for New Siding

Installing new siding isn’t as complicated as it seems. But most people do feel intimidated by the process of cutting and nailing dozens of boards to their home, so they decide to hire a professional. The pros will do most of the work for you, but there are some things you can do to expedite the whole operation and make it as smooth and efficient as possible. Here’s how to prepare for new siding in Centennial.

Check for Damage

So you’ve noticed a few cracks, but does all of your siding need to be replaced? Or can you get away with minor repairs? Don’t assume that the rest of your siding is in good condition. It’s always best to check the whole house, just in case. Make sure to pull back the edges and gently push on different sections to check for damage that’s hard to spot, like rotted wood.

Take Care of Landscaping

Do you have bushes or trees situated at the base of your home? You might want to trim them back. That way, the pros can get through without a problem and do their job. It may be sad to bid farewell to your rose bushes, but chances are, they’d get tromped on anyway.

Find a Pro

Your next step is to find a pro to help you with the rest of the process. Check online reviews and ask your neighbors who they’ve used. This is a good way to find someone you can rely on and trust.
