If you’re a skilled Do-It-Yourselfer, you can install siding on your own without assistance from a contractor. You would need to carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions, plus review and understand the terms of the siding warranty.
But before you tackle a siding job on your own, consider this:
It’s easy to see why most homeowners call an experienced pro to install siding. There are plenty out there who have advanced training (like those who are members of the LP® BuildSmart™ Program). That way you’ll avoid warranty-voiding mistakes – and your siding will be durable and beautiful for years to come.
Re-siding your home can completely transform its look and increase curb appeal exponentially, but completing a re-side is a big job and a significant investment. If you've never done it, it's hard to know what to expect and how to prepare for a siding replacement.
Board and batten style siding is enjoying a resurgence as a way to create visual interest in an otherwise blank wall. Many believe board and batten style is a timeless look that can leave your home's exterior with major curb appeal for years to come.
