Vinyl, Aluminum, Steel, or Hardie Board Siding
If you have siding like vinyl, aluminum, steel, or hardie board, we will take a strip down near the middle of the wall and drill into your stud cavities. After that, we will probe the cavities left and right, up and down, to make sure that we are filling everything in the whole cavity. Upon completion, your siding will be put back into place.
For vinyl siding, you shouldn't even be able to tell we were there. For Aluminum, hardie board, or steel siding, it may require a bit of touch up paint from the homeowner where we cut caulking.
If we come across a fire block, we will remove another strip of siding on the other side of the block and repeat the same process of probing to ensure there's not another cavity. There are times when we find three and four cavities in a wall, up and down, depending on the construction of the home. Once we've filled this cavity with our foam, we're able to plug it and put the siding back on.
