Siding: Now That You Have An Estimate Scheduled, What’s Next?

Gilford VT Siding Replacement

The first step is realizing that your siding needs to be replaced. Next, you find a trustworthy siding contractor and call to schedule an estimate. But you already have that under control. What happens next? There’s still a long way to go before the project itself, but it helps to know what’s ahead. Here’s what you can look forward to as the next steps in your project.

The Estimate

When your siding company arrives on the date of the estimate, they’ll give your home’s exterior a thorough inspection, including the current siding and the measurements of the walls. They’ll then discuss with you the kind of siding you’d like to have installed. Different types of siding offer different benefits and different lifespans. At Jancewicz & Son, we offer both wood siding and vinyl siding. Once you’ve picked an option, we’ll give you a fair and accurate estimate, taking into account the labor as well as materials.

Before the Replacement

If the estimate sounds good to you, we’ll sign a contract laying out all the terms of the project and get started. You’ll be given a date at which the project will begin, and an estimated time that it will take to complete the project. You’ll be given the name of the head of the project that you’ll want to contact with any questions or change in plans. For our part, we’ll order materials and keep an eye on the weather in case any changes need to be made.

The Project Itself

You may decide that you want to get out of the house while your siding project is going on. You can plan a shopping day, a day out with kids, or even some time out of the city. If this is the case, you want to give your contact for the project your information so that they can call you if any changes need to be made or there are any emergencies. If you choose to stay at home, make sure that anything valuable is moved away from the site of the project and keep any pets or small children out of the way.
