Our composite siding installation process:
- Prepare the surface: The first step in installing composite siding is to prepare the surface of the home. This involves removing any existing siding, repairing or replacing any damaged sheathing or framing, and ensuring that the surface is clean and smooth.
- Install the starter strip: A starter strip is installed at the bottom of the wall to create a level surface for the first course of siding to be installed. The starter strip also provides a space for water to drain away from the house.
- Install the corner posts: Corner posts are installed at the corners of the house to provide a stable and level surface for the siding to be attached.
- Install the siding panels: The siding panels are then installed by snapping or sliding them into place on top of the starter strip and corner posts. The panels are typically interlocked or overlapped to provide a secure and weather-resistant seal.
- Cut and trim the panels: As the siding is installed, panels may need to be cut or trimmed to fit around windows, doors, and other obstacles on the wall.
- Install the trim and accessories: Once the siding is installed, trim and accessories such as corner caps, J-channel, and window/door trim are installed to provide a finished look and to help seal any gaps.
- Finish the installation: Finally, any remaining gaps or joints are sealed with caulk, and any necessary touch-ups or cleaning are done to complete the installation.
