While siding replacement is a big investment, it can also give you significant returns. If you are planning on selling your home in the future, more potential buyers will be drawn to an attractive home exterior. Moreover, when getting new siding, it’s essential to know how much materials your project will require.

Top siding and window replacement contractors share factors that will help you determine how much siding you’ll need for your home.

How Much Siding Does Your Home Need? 

Your siding of choice will determine the calculations for your new siding. Make sure to include the square footage of your windows and doors in your calculations, as you’ll need a “fudge” room. A skilled siding contractor would prioritize using the waste pieces and usually leave homeowners with materials that you can return for a refund

To know how much siding your project needs, you’ll need to get the exact length and height of the wall where the siding will be installed. However, it’s best to leave this task to professionals because sometimes measurements and calculations can be complicated, especially for shingle siding.

Why Hire Professionals for Your Siding Replacement?

Like window replacement, installing new siding is best left to the hands of trained professionals. Reputable contractors are licensed, insured, and bonded. They are knowledgeable about the documents necessary for your project, such as permits. You can also count on them for high-quality and long-lasting results.

Keep in mind that siding installation requires the use of the right tools for efficient and proper installation. Also, many siding manufacturers require that their products are installed by an authorized contractor. If you attempt to install your siding yourself, your warranty may be terminated.
