Take a Look at Our Seattle Siding Installation Process
With more than 25 years of experience in the siding business, Side-Pro, Inc. understands every aspect of siding installation in the Seattle-Tacoma region. We want to make the process as smooth as possible for you. Here’s a little more about what you can expect from our siding installation in Seattle.
Upon starting the job, our siding lead is expected to pick up the remaining 35% deposit. Upon completion of the job, our siding lead will provide an invoice and is expected to collect the remaining balance.
The dumpster is a commercial roll-off type. It is about the size of a large truck—approx. 6′ x 20′ in dimension. We would prefer to put this in the driveway if possible so that it is close to the house and will be easily accessible for our siding installation workers. Please keep children away from the container for safety.
Siding Installation Material Location
This will also be placed in your driveway. It’s similar to the size and location needed for the dumpster.
This can be placed anywhere near the job. This will not take up as much space so it is typically placed near the dumpster and materials.
Equipment for Siding Installation
The siding equipment will be delivered when we start the job. It will be placed around your house as needed. Please keep children and pets away from the equipment for their safety.
Equipment and Tool Trailer
We will be parking a 16′ equipment trailer on the street in front of your house. Our workers will be placing their tools and equipment in this trailer. This trailer will be parked there during the duration of the job.
We will need two main outlets preferably in the front and the back of the house. These should be on separate breakers since our tools will draw more power than your breaker can handle if they are plugged into one outlet.
We will need to locate your water main shut-off in the unlikely event your existing plumbing should get damaged during the siding replacement.
Please remove all screens on your windows. During the replacement process, screens can sometimes get snagged by a nail or damaged in some way or another. It’s easier to remove the screens than it is to replace them.
Wall Hangings and Décor
Please remove all pictures and mirrors from the walls we will be working on. Also remove any décor in china cabinets, etc. to eliminate possible damage from vibrations caused by the replacement process.
Please keep in mind that we will be working around landscaping and plants. We will take precautions to eliminate damage to plants by tying them back or covering them with buckets or garbage cans. Please trim back any plants that are directly up against the house to give our technicians a minimum 6″ clearance.
Lights and Outlets
Our workers are not trained to deal with electrical fixtures. We will remove any lights and fixtures for access to the existing siding; however, our workers are not expected to reinstall these items after your siding replacement. Please let us know if you need assistance with your electrical fixtures.
Lien Disclosure Notice
You will be receiving a certified letter (“Notice of Intent to Lien”) from our siding supplier. THIS IS NOT A LIEN. All siding materials are purchased on an account from our supplier. By law, they are required to send this letter explaining the lien rights of our supplier. At the completion of your job, we will provide all necessary lien releases.
Siding Installation Work Hours
Our work hours are typically between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mon–Fri. If you would like those hours changed for any reason, please let us know.
It is our policy to clean up the job site daily. We will sweep and use a rolling magnet to remove any nails and debris around your house. We will do everything we can to remove any loose nails, but, as a precaution, please inspect your driveway for any nails we may have missed.
We will be placing a job sign in your yard for advertising. Please feel free to inform us if you don’t wish to have this in your yard.
Please keep in mind that you are paying for the siding materials installed on the wall. Any extra materials have been purchased at our expense and will be picked up at the end of the job.
If you have an alarm system, please make arrangements with your provider or technician to have the system prepared for a remodeling job.
Gas Safety Valves
Some homes are equipped with an earthquake sensor attached to the gas meter. Light remodeling work may trigger the sensor to deactivate your gas line. Please review your gas meter instructions for re-setting this sensor.
Cable and Satellite Dishes
Please make arrangements with your satellite or cable provider to re-set and reconnect your service after your siding installation has been completed.
