Your home’s siding plays an essential role in protecting your house from moisture, pests, and other problems. It’s recommended to keep your siding in good condition to maintain the curb appeal of your property. If it’s time to replace your siding and you’re interested in learning more about how it’s done, read on to learn more.
The Vinyl Siding Installation Process
Professionals will first need to remove the existing siding from your home. Once this is done, professionals will check the condition of the flashing on the windows and doors, sealing up any gaps found. Next, house wrap is attached with a staple gun to provide an additional layer of protection against moisture and water vapor. The vinyl siding itself is installed atop the house wrap with nails, starting from the home’s bottom.
What’s Different about Installing Vinyl Siding?
Vinyl siding is more affordable and somewhat easier to install than wood or metal alternatives. Its flexibility also makes it easy to cut into custom-sized pieces to get around window frames, air vents, or other obstacles. The vinyl siding cost will vary depending on the brand, color, and design of the material. While overlapping horizontal panels are the most common vinyl siding type, many other styles imitate shingles, shake, or logs. Scalloped vinyl siding is another elegant design popular with many homeowners. It’s advisable to speak with a professional for guidance on selecting the best vinyl siding option to accommodate your home’s unique design.
