How long does it take to install siding on my home?
Answer: Most siding installations should be done in less than two weeks, though it can depend on a number of factors, such as the size of your home and the materials used. For example, vinyl siding yields a simple, straightforward installation process for contractors, while other materials such as brick or wood might require more care in their installation, thus taking more time to install. For owners of conventionally-sized homes, you should be able to see the results of siding installation come together by the two-week mark.
Do I Need to Care for my Siding Once it’s Installed?
Answer: Not immediately. Siding, like many other parts of your home’s exterior (such as your roof or windows) requires little to no care upon installation from homeowners. As time passes, however, it’s smart for homeowners to perform a routine checkup on their siding. There’s no harm in simply walking around the perimeter of your exterior and inspecting your siding for any damage, and though damage is typically rare, a simple inspection can help you detect any problems with your siding before they become serious.
How Long will my Siding Last?
Answer: It depends on the materials used, how well they were installed, and climate, among other factors. For this particular question, it’s hard to come to a concise answer, as there is truly no telling of how long your home’s siding will exactly last. For vinyl siding that is installed well, homeowners can see functionality for up to sixty years, but this does not account for other factors such as weather that can shorten the lifespan of your siding. Other materials, such as fiber cement, which is known to last homeowners a long period of time, may even last you a lifetime.
