Siding Replacement for this Home in Milwaukie

Tending to and beautifying your home’s exterior is as important as taking care of your home’s interior. One way of doing so is maintaining your siding. A damaged siding will not only look unappealing but it may pose serious harm to your home.

Mold can grow, moisture can cause water damage, and more. In the long run, all of this can lead to even bigger problems. Good siding should properly protect and preserve the inside of your home, so you don’t need to waste money on expensive repairs you could have prevented. This homeowner from Vancouver agrees with us.

We also installed Vycor Window Wrap on windows and vapor barrier per manufacturer’s specifications. Lastly, for this stage of the process, we installed Hardie trim around windows, doors, corners and Z-metal above windows where needed.

Better-Looking Siding for Portland Home

Maintaining your siding is essential to protecting your home, as well as for your home’s appearance. It shields your home from harsh weather conditions and elements like wind, snow, and rain.

Preparations for Siding Installation

Before installing the new sidings, we had to make sure that the materials of the surface are damage-free. This part is crucial if you want your siding to last for a long time. If there are untreated problems such as mold on the layers of wood under your siding, it’ll easily spread to the newly installed siding, consequently you’ll need to have it replaced again.

So for this stage of the process, we removed one layer of wood siding. Then, we proceeded with inspecting the sheeting for rot and damage. Once that was settled, we replaced some plywood where it’s necessary.

Moreover, we Installed Vapor barrier per manufacturer's specifications on the siding area being replaced. Then, the Hardie Trim was around windows, doors and corners. And last but not the least, we placed Z-metal above windows and doors.

Installing HARDIEPLANK® LAP SIDING CEDARMILL

Now, onto the main stage of the process. We installed a pre-primed HardiePlank Lap Siding Select Cedarmill, which measures 8.25 `` to match the current one. Along with this new siding is a James Hardie 30 Year JAMES HARDIE MATERIAL WARRANTY. The homeowner definitely got his money’s worth with this one.

Some of the last but equally important steps that we did is to apply QSI Quad Max caulking and we did a magnet sweep for fasteners used.
