The process of installation all starts with the selection of siding. It is best to choose one that has higher R values for the best energy-saving results. When the installation begins, waterproofing will be the first action. It will ensure that moisture won't be retained and cause problems later on down the road.
Next, all siding material will be cut down to the specific size to meet your home's needs. A chalk line will be used to make sure that the siding will be completely level. Then it is time to start affixing the siding panels. The first piece to be applied is a starter strip. It is where it will all begin to take shape, and the siding pieces can start to be nailed in place. We will position the siding so that it creates the best fit. After all the siding has been applied, trim can be done. It includes the trim for both windows and doors. Trim will give your siding the finished looked.
