Replacing the siding on your home can involve a lot of details, including disruption of your daily routine once construction starts. Thus, it’s natural to wonder how long siding installation will take on your home. Several factors go into determining how long the project will take, including adverse weather, which can delay completion of installation. The following are factors that can affect the length of installation.
Specifications surround your home can lengthen installation time. These include:
- One story versus two stories
- Overall square footage
- The presence of sharply sloping terrain immediately surrounding the foundation
- Trees, bushes and other landscaping features adjacent to the home
The pre-existing conditions that we must deal with during installation, along with your personal choices are factors.
- If existing siding needs to be torn off, the project will take several additional days as opposed to projects where our crew fastens siding on top of existing exteriors
- HardiePlank® Lap Siding, HardieShingle® Siding and HardiePanel® Vertical Siding all have different installation requirements
- Selecting cement fiber siding that requires painting will add to the time needed for full completion
According to the James Hardie Siding Best Practices manual, selecting HardiePlank® siding puts your installation into the average category. Therefore, you can expect installation to take an average of 10 to 12 days. If the siding needs painting, expect the job to last an additional five days.
