Lowcountry Roofing: Experienced Summerville SC Roofer
Siding installations are dreaded processes for many homeowners who haven’t experienced them firsthand. These property owners are rightfully worried about how long their unprotected homes will be exposed to the elements and whether their yards will turn into huge messes during the installation process.
Fortunately, installations that are planned by experienced Summerville roofing professionals usually speed by and leave minimal disturbances as they go. Here are some of the stages we break the process down into so that things proceed as smoothly as possible:
Before anything else, good siding installers generally assess the material conditions of your home. While you may not be too concerned with the current status of the old siding you’re trying to get rid of, it could tell your installer something about what’s going on with your building’s exterior. For instance, the visible rotting you see in your wooden siding may go deeper than the cladding itself. By investigating these issues in advance, installers can determine exactly what they’ll have to do to create an effective replacement and provide you with a more accurate price estimate.
Once the preliminary planning stages are complete, the actual work can begin with the removal of the old siding. Installers usually do this in sections in order to minimize the amount of surface area that is left unguarded in case of sudden weather shifts. As they proceed around your building, they’ll strip any caulk or flashing covering the edges and panels of the current material.
