The Re-Side Process
Just because your siding may not be completely falling off, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a siding problem. Go outside and take a look. Is the siding sagging, cracking, buckling, blistering, peeling, or fading? Here are a few other signs that it might be time to re-side your home.
1. Remove the old siding
Covering up the old problem is rarely recommended. The way to do a job right is to remove the old siding entirely. This allows the new siding to be installed as if it were your original exterior.
2. Inspect the structure
Before the new exterior siding is applied, the existing structure should be inspected for moisture damage, mold, termites or rot. Covering your old siding with vinyl siding can potentially prevent serious structural problems from being discovered.
3. Apply a weather barrier
A weather resistant barrier, such as HardieWrap® weather barrier, should be applied to create an extra layer of moisture and wind protection. Most building codes today require it, in fact.
4. Install the new siding
Your new siding will be installed according to the James Hardie Installation Best Practices guidelines.
