Need New Siding? Avoid These Exterior Siding Mistakes

repair siding

Winter is right around the corner, but luckily your siding is able to handle the elements no matter the weather. In fact, the average siding installation is capable of handling winds of up to 110 mph.

 

Unfortunately, flying debris and age can also impact your home’s exterior siding. That said, if you find yourself in need of a new siding repair or installation before winter hits, be sure not to make some of the following mistakes.

 

Prioritizing cost over quality

 

There are up to 15 different types of siding and the top three most popular kinds include cedar, vinyl, and fiber cement. Many homeowners often choose to install vinyl siding because it’s the cheapest option and they’re looking to save money on their house.

 

But too often homeowners realize that there’s a reason why vinyl siding is the cheapest option. It doesn’t have the quality that other types of siding, like cedar siding, has.

 

Cedar siding may require a little more maintenance every three to seven years, but its durability makes it worth the elbow-grease.

 

Attempting to install your siding yourself

 

In a perfect world, you might be able to install your home’s exterior siding on your own and you wouldn’t make any mistakes. But in the world we live in, it’s never a good idea to DIY your siding.

 

If given the choice to have your siding installed by amateur installers or professional installers, odds are you would give the job to the professional siding contractor. So why attempt to do your siding yourself if you wouldn’t trust an amateur installer?

 

DIY siding installation can impact your siding’s performance, cause condensation buildup in your insulation, and damage your home’s structural integrity. There’s also the risk of you getting injured while on the job.

 

By hiring a professional installer, you don’t have to worry about your siding’s performance. You can expect it to work just like its supposed to, no condensation involved.

 

Need a professional to repair siding?

 

It’s recommended to apply a new coat of stain, sealer, or paint every three to seven years to maintain your cedar siding. But, sometimes your siding can suffer from damage that needs to be repaired or replaced.

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-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.
