Homeowners that may be considering getting new siding on their homes would be well-advised to use a company that is familiar with many of the siding installation best practices & safety guidelines that are recognized by the industry to help keep contractors and homeowners safe. Without these practices and guidelines contractors and homeowners may face an elevated risk of harm from accident, negligence, or outright recklessness.
We’re going to look at the various safety guidelines and installation best practices for siding installers, and why they are important. In the end, we’ll talk about where to turn if your Kansas City home needs a new siding installation.
What Are Siding Installation Best Practices & Safety Guidelines?
While this list certainly won’t be exhaustive, it will give you a good idea of how our crews maintain their safety and professionalism while on your project.
Safety Is Non-Negotiable
Our first rule as a siding installer is that safety is non-negotiable. We are all highly experienced siding installers that have years of practice and expertise behind us, and we are all James Hardie Certified. This means that our siding professionals have endured rigorous testing to be licensed to work in many of the KC area’s towns, but they have also been trained to specifically understand the strict installation requirements of Hardie siding.
Certified In Lead Removal
Our teams are all certified in lead removal because many of the homes in the KC area are older and at risk for lead contamination. We make sure that all of our crews are familiar with lead removal and contamination protocols. Sometimes you never know what you’ll find once you start getting into a project, and no matter what they encounter our teams can deal with it safely.
We Never Overlook The Small Stuff
Even though we’re installing siding on your whole house, we try to keep an eye on the smaller details. Making sure that your property is kept clean and tidy. Making sure that the area is constantly swept for nails and other debris so that being clean is an ongoing effort, not just a one-time task.
House Wrap Installation
House wrap is one of the crucial elements for a professional installation of siding. It helps ensure there is a moisture barrier between the outside and the inside of your home. The wrap must also be taped properly to be considered properly installed and safe. Failing to tape properly will lead to water damage
Many contractors skip it, but installing kickout flashing is vital to help prevent water damage. We make sure that we go the extra mile to keep your home safe for the long term.
Another reason that installations often fail is that they are installed without proper clearances. This causes buckling and warping.
