Siding Renovation Process
As soon as you decide on style and colour of your siding, we sign a contract and start working on your project.
Here are steps involved when do siding replacement.
Old siding removal
The old siding will be removed carefully and safely along with all the light fixtures and outlet boxes. Removal is done carefully to minimize damage to existing structures and sheathing underneath.
Our trained professionals will remove all debris daily and keep the area clean. Depending on the size of the project, a dumpster bin will be delivered to your property for debris and garbage disposal.
We inspect sheathing and framing for rot, damage or if missing altogether in some areas. If underlying rot is discovered, usually caused by water, we inform you for possible repairs.
From our experience, extensive water damage is uncommon. The additional repair cost for sheathing and framing is usually minimal.
Sheathing and framing inspection
Rainscreen is a critical system that provides a cavity between the exterior cladding and main structure of the wall. This cavity allows for free drainage of any water that might penetrate the cladding. The air flow in the cavity also promotes rapid drying, inhibiting moisture penetration into the building envelope. Rainscreen turns your walls into two layered defence against the elements.
To prepare walls for siding, we install rainscreen system as per BC Building Code.
Our rainscreen involve the following elements:
30min Building paper
Henry Blueskin® membrane
Pressure treated Furring Strip
Prior to installing the siding, after rainscreen system, our crew will install your new window trims, window flashings and vents.
We then install the chosen siding in strict accordance with manufacturer installation manual to prevent voiding factory warranty.
Unlike many other siding companies, our salesmen are the installers too. We take great pride in our work, the final result has to look beautiful.
Caulking and final touch up
Final step is to seal it all up with factory colour match caulking, exterior sealant for all butt joints and window trims. Followed by paint touch ups and final clean up.
We also walk-through the homeowner of all the work that has been done and tips on maintenance.
