With practically any home improvement project, you have to consider not just the type or amount of material you need but also whom you should be entrusting your project to. In this article, Timberland Exteriors, a leader in providing exterior home remodeling services, shares some insight on what you need to consider when estimating siding needs – type, amount and installation requirements – for your home.
Siding Material Amount
The amount of siding you need is usually measured in square feet. You need to figure out the total square footage of your home’s exteriors and then subtract the square footage that your doors and windows take up. It is advisable to request the help of a professional siding installer to come up with such measurements as they can more easily arrive at an accurate number and factor in any extra material you might need, as well, for uneven sections.
Visual Assessment Help
If you’re trying to figure out what type of siding your home will look better with, there are online tools you can use to help you choose successfully. For instance, expert home remodeling contractor, Timberland Exteriors, features their DESIGN IT visualization program – a tool designed to help homeowners explore various possibilities for their home without spending on anything. Choose among their many photos of various homes in their tool library or upload a picture of your own and see what different James Hardie® siding options may potentially look like after application.
It is important to highlight that no matter how good the quality of your siding material might be, the money you spend on it may end up going to waste if you fail to choose a certified professional to oversee its application on your home. Check whether your contractor is affiliated with the manufacturer of the products they offer or not. Such affiliations are usually indicative of adequate training and a license to install products without running the risk of voiding any manufacturer warranties.
