Are you getting new siding on your home? Ask these five questions before you choose a service provider.

1. What are my options?

The two most popular siding choices are replacement composite, which is made of recycled wood pulp, and vinyl.

2. What are the benefits of vinyl siding?

Vinyl siding is easy to install, virtually maintenance free and, because it doesn’t fade, it’s long-lasting. Oh, and did we mention it’s budget friendly?

3. What does the project entail?

Any rotten wood should be removed, and window and door openings should be sealed. Then the insulation board, siding and any accessories, like shutters, are installed.

4. Will there be a big mess?

Yet another benefit of choosing vinyl siding is that it comes in large panels, which minimizes any project-related messes.

5. Do you need to do anything beforehand?

Make sure your driveway is clear, and move any outdoor furniture and equipment that could be in the way.

Don’t forget the interior — put away anything that could be damaged, including items in the garage and attic.

These five questions will help you choose a service provider who’s on your side.
