What Can I Do If I Don’t Like My New Home’s Siding?

new sidingIt can be a little overwhelming moving into your very first house. Once you’ve signed the mortgage and moved in, all responsibility for it is officially yours. That includes major housing components like the plumbing, roof, and siding.

 

Depending on the type of siding you have, you won’t have to worry about caring for your new home’s siding for a while. With proper maintenance, cedar siding can last for up to 25 years.

 

But, if your new home doesn’t have new siding, when is the best time to replace it? Is it a good idea to replace it when you move in?

 

When do I replace the siding on my new home?

 

If you’re unsure of when your home’s siding was installed, keep an eye on the quality throughout the year. The majority of siding installations can handle winds that are as high as 110 mph, but you can never be too sure.

 

Contact a siding contractor if you notice damage to your siding. Debris or age could have caused cracks or other damage that needs to be repaired to keep cold air and wetness out.

 

You may need to contact a siding company like Side Pro about new siding if your new home’s siding has been damaged beyond repair. This is why it’s a good idea to have a home inspection before officially buying a home.

 

What if I don’t like my new home’s siding?

 

It happens. You move into a new home that has the right layout, the right number of bedrooms, and just enough space, but the curb appeal leaves something to be desired.

 

The good news is you don’t necessarily need to wait for your home’s siding to need repairs and replacement before you decide to get rid of it. Many homeowners often choose to replace their vinyl siding with cedar siding because they prefer the style and durability.

 

Does your house need new siding?

 

It’s recommended to repaint your cedar siding every 10 to 15 years and to re-stain it every five to 10 years depending on your style choice. But, eventually, your siding will need to be repaired or replaced.

 

Fortunately, Side Pro offers siding repair and siding replacement when your home needs it. To learn more about installing new siding or to speak to a siding contractor, contact Side Pro today.

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.
