Discover the Elements of a Successful Siding Installation Process

Siding is an exterior element on homes that can either make or break the appeal. Do you currently have siding? Are you ready to replace fiber cement siding for a more upscale look like cedar siding? Siding installation companies can assist you in choosing the perfect type of cedar siding that increases the curb appeal of your home while also raising the value.

Siding is a great choice for many homes since it offers more insulation, especially when another barrier of insulation is put between your home and the new siding. Replacement or new siding can lower energy bills and will stay put when using the services offered by expert installation companies. Today, most siding installations are rated for strong winds of up to 110 mph. Excellent contractors have the knowledge, skills, and services needed to ensure your new siding stays put. Top-notch siding installations will give your home a pristine, and the siding installation process is easy.

What Is the Siding Installation Process?

A local siding contractor will take care of the entire siding installation process. You can expect to meet with them to discuss your siding installation process so you fully understand all of the steps and everything they are responsible for in regards to the project. Materials will be delivered the day before a job is to begin. You can count on all installation techs to keep the area neat and clean while setting up necessary scaffolding so old siding can be removed.

Siding contractors will make sure every effort is made to replace siding and ensure that there is no water damage before installing a new vapor barrier so your home stays in good condition. Once this has been accomplished, your new siding is then installed. During the final stages of the siding installation process, a walk-through inspection ensues. Every part of the siding installation will be checked so you are guaranteed 100% satisfaction.

Siding Companies Take Great Care of Their Customers

Top siding contractors want you to know every aspect of their installation process. This includes discussing things like payment terms, dumpster location, the location for the siding material and equipment locations so you can keep pets and children away from those areas for their safety. The siding installation process will also require electrical access, and you will need to shut off your water. At least two main electrical outlets need to be accessible in the back and front of your home. Those outlets should also be on separate breakers so the power tools used can be supported without tripping just one breaker. Your water also needs to be shut off in case of the unlikely event any plumbing gets damaged during installation.

Know What to Do with Screens, Décor, and Plants

A lot goes into replacing or installing new cedar siding. Since nails are used, and the installation company wants to protect their customers at all costs, window screens need to be removed so they are not accidentally snagged or damaged by nails. Any décor such as mirrors or pictures inside your home need to be taken down from the walls. If you have any cabinets or other décor on your walls, you will need to remove them too. Vibrations from installation work can cause items to fall and possibly break. Plants and landscaping also need care. Tie plants and other types of landscaping back, or cover them with garbage cans or buckets to keep them safe. You may need to trim landscaping that’s up against the house and give a minimum clearance of 6”.

There are more details that need to be explained by siding experts. When speaking with them, keep in mind construction debris, work hours, extra materials, job signs, gas safety valves, alarm systems, satellite dishes, and cable so you can be sure you are fully ready for the installation process. Making sure you ask about all of the details to ensure your siding goes up without any issues!

Side-Pro fixed an issue with some wavy sideboards on my home. The team that came out was fast, effective, professional -- and genuinely nice guys. They explained what they were doing, answered all my questions, and got the work done beautifully and ahead of schedule. Afterwards they followed up promptly to make sure I was satisfied and to let me know they were available for any future questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing similar work done.

Side Pro was a pleasure to work with from the start. I learned in the bid process that most siding and window companies are sales teams only and all the installation is sub-contracted out. It was important to me to use a firm that was accountable for the end to end job and Side Pro used full-time employees for my job. The sales person knew a lot about siding and gave me some great recommendations. He submitted a competitive price and then walked through the full job with me and the job foreman. Then the job foreman took over and was very responsive to all my questions and change orders over the course of project. The installation team was also excellent. They cleaned up every day and did really top notch work. I am very particular and they worked to understand what I was after and made it happen. Great job. The job site had COVID procedures posted, which were followed by the crew, and a safety officer dropped by on two occasions to check up on things. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better customer experience and recommend Side Pro to anyone considering new siding.

Side Pros is amazing. They were on time and cleaned up to where other than materials I wouldn't have known they were there. Sam Brock, Duane Tidball and the crew were all very professional and courteous. Kept in contact with me throughout the days (3 day project). Completed earlier than the anticipated 5 days and made sure to ask if I had any questions or concerns every day. Recommendation? YES!!! Even took pictures for me to see the progress and problem areas.

Side-Pro, what a class act! My husband and I discovered the company at the SEA Home show in Feb 2020. They had serval booths in the show and all representatives were friendly and knowledgeable. They shared information and answered questions, never did we feel pressured, plus they had a great magnet clip give away 😊. After the show, I called the Side-Pro office to ask few questions. I was fortunate and was referred to Russ De Arment, the sales manager. Russ was able to answer my questions over the phone to my satisfaction and was even able to come out the same day to do a walk through and give an estimate. Russ truly presents himself as a contracting professional. He is honest and presents facts, not what you might want to hear to get your business. I had a siding question on my son’s new construction house and Russ even went to his house to look for me and wrote up a suggest list of repairs for my son. He did this kind gesture without being compensated. The installers were fantastic and treated my house like it was their own. They were respectful on my property and left it in better shape than when they arrived, this was especially important to the field supervisor Duane. As with any project, there are always follow up items. I found one small item and within a day of me notifying Russ, he sent Duane, another amazing team member, who not only took care of the punch list item, he even fixed something for me that wasn’t even siding related! Finally, the painting supervisor, Mo, this is sounding redundant, but another amazing Side-Pro team member. Once again, knowledgeable, reliable, and fun to work with. In SEA, rain is an outdoor painter’s worst enemy. Mo did a great job of communicating schedule changes immediately and always responded to my emails quickly. Like the siders, the painters were professional and did a great job. I have had my house painted three times in 20 years, and by far, this two-man crew was quick, efficient and did quality work. I have a 4500, three story house and they completed the work in less than 4 days. In summary, I got three bids, Side-Pro was the least expensive by a few hundred, but that is not why I went with them. It was their professionalism and responsiveness that helped make my decision to use them and I am so happy I did!

Side-Pro did a FANTASTIC job installing the Cemplank siding and Hardieboard trim on our new shop. The price was great and the work was top-notch. The two gentlemen doing the work were efficient and professional. Communication with DJ, the project advisor/estimator was very good. Overall I am very pleased and will definitely use them again! Highly recommended.

I am VERY satisfied! I called for a repair job. Several other companies either would not give an estimate, or could not do so for several months. I got the job done, as requested, within a couple weeks. Karl their repair specialist is pleasant to work with, as well as competent.

I needed crawl space vents installed with very short notice. Side-Pro set up an appointment and got the work done in a matter of days! The contractor who did the work busted his butt and was very nice. The work is excellent.
