Here Are 3 Things Every Homeowner Should
Do To Prepare For Siding Installation.

Siding Installation Is A Big Project For Your Wasatch Front
Home, So Take The Necessary Steps To Prepare


Siding installation is a big project. Fortunately, if you do it right, you won’t have to worry about replacing your Wasatch Front siding again ANY time soon.

That’s why it’s important to plan ahead in order to be fully prepared.

Here are 3 steps you should take before replacing your siding in Salt Lake City, UT….


#1: Get A Thorough Inspection & A Solid Estimate

Your siding doesn’t stand alone. No, it’s a critical part of your home’s exterior. That’s why it’s so important to get a thorough inspection of your siding, windows, and property BEFORE you replace your siding.

These extra steps of analysis are crucial to setting you up for a successful siding installation project.

You need to know if there are any other projects, such as gutter or window installation, that may need to be done before you install your new siding.

It’s also an opportunity to catch any other minor issues you may have missed over the years.


#2: Choose The Right Siding Material & Installer

Finding the right exterior contractor is critical to ensuring your installation goes smoothly, but picking the right siding material is just as important.

Here are our recommendations for doing both:

  1. Great siding is tried-and-true and comes with an excellent warranty. Don’t skimp on the quality of your siding to save a little bit in the short term. The lifetime value of GREAT siding, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding, is VASTLY more important than the initial price.
  2. Find a siding installer with credentials. Read customer reviews, find out how long they’ve been in business, and make sure they are a certified installer. For James Hardie, we are not only certified but are an Elite Preferred Installer, giving us special privileges and our customers TRUE peace of mind.

#3: Deciding Whether To Finance Or Pay All At Once

If you have the cash available, it can make sense to pay for your siding installation all at once, but you certainly don’t have to. In fact, even if you have cash available, it can sometimes be preferable to finance your siding or other exterior project.

Here’s why:

Financing saves you from having to withdraw from savings and enables you to spread your payments out without accruing any interest for as long as two years. Our financing plans are designed to fit your budget and accommodate your needs, so you get to improve your home with new and better siding when you NEED it.
