Once you have decided to have your home’s siding replaced, you need to have it properly planned. After all, you will have to live with your choice for a few decades. Roofing and siding contractor ReNew Home Designs shares some tips on planning your siding replacement project.
Siding occupies a significant part of your home’s exterior and can completely transform its looks. Take the time to find what would looks good on it. Check out magazines and design websites, as well as neighboring houses for ideas. Take photos and clippings so you can compare them later before choosing the one that looks best.
Plan Your Budget
It should be noted that there is no fixed cost for siding replacement and other remodeling projects. Every home has different square footage that requires new siding. Combined with material, color and style choices, you can see why contractors never give an estimate until after a full inspection.
That being said, a ballpark price should give you an idea on how much siding replacements usually cost. Ask friends, family and colleagues who have had siding replaced recently, then decide whether or not you will be able to finance the project. In addition to cash, card, loans and refinancing, contractors like us offer financing options.
Choose Your Contractor
Once you have a clear idea of what your siding project should look like, it’s time to choose the contractor. Finding the right contractor may be tedious at first, given that you have to research their products and services and customer feedback, as well as verify license and insurance information. But keeping in mind that your new siding will stay on your home for a long time, you need to make time to avoid hiring an inexperienced contractor, or worse, a scammer.
Resources such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) can help you narrow down your list. Also, make it a point to call at least three local references provided by the contractor. Past customers are another great resource of honest feedback and can help you settle on the right contractor for your siding replacement job.
