Projects on Your Home: Five Key Points to Consider

roof installation

When we are faced with making a decision about doing projects on our property, there’s not always a lot of time to take action. But it’s important to find out as much as possible before starting any type of work, such as a roof installation project or siding replacement and installation. Consider these five key points before the professionals begin working on your property.

1. Find Out About New and Replacement Siding 

You already know that this siding repair service will install new and replacement siding. But you need to find out what kinds. Siding is available in an incredible variety of colors, styles and thicknesses. You can have cedar siding, for instance, clapboard, and more, to create the look that is perfect for your home. This may be a good time to consider making a change.

2. Find Out About Durability 

You want your new siding to last as long as possible. As projects go, replacing your siding is a big project. It’s not a project you want to tackle again any sooner than is absolutely necessary. Durability should be a key consideration in the selection of materials to use if you are doing a window, door, or roof installation project. For instance, only 4% of the construction market’s production energy is lumber. Yet, at the same time, lumber is quite durable. It is also minimally processed and actually makes up almost half of all building materials, actually 40%. So you may consider inquiring about it. 

3. Remember That Curb Appeal Matters 

If you’ve never installed siding, looks and curb appeal point might not be the first thing that comes into your mind. But looks count and the siding on your home needs to complement the look of your house. Ask the company to show you a portfolio of their completed projects. Remember, good curb appeal will add to the resale value of your property.

4. Find Out About Aluminum and Copper Gutters 

Sometimes the work done by a siding installation service has to extend beyond the siding itself to contiguous areas of your home, such as gutters and windows. Ask if the company handles roof installation, gutter installation and repairs, as well as installing new and replacement windows. Efficient gutter installation and proper gutter maintenance will protect other areas of the home such as custom windows and doors from being flooded with rainwater and debris, both of which are potentially damaging to your property.

5. Find Out About New and Replacement Windows 

If you need to replace any windows, make sure to ask if energy efficient windows will be installed. As a homeowner, you can reduce your home’s energy needs by choosing these types of windows. It has been shown that energy bills can increase when air escapes through drafty windows. 

For whatever reason, you are in a situation where you need to do work on the exterior of your property. You will need to find a professional company to do the work, but you want them to look at your siding, roof, gutters, doors, and windows too. Being informed is a key factor in not only finding a good company to do your project; being informed will also help you find the best value and lead you to a project that is completed to your satisfaction.

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.
