Do I need new siding?
First, you need to have a professional siding contractor come out and take a look! We know what to look for with potential rot. Here in the NW wood siding is one of the worst sidings to have on your home because of the rain and moisture. Wood siding like LP (Louisiana Pacific), T1-11, Cedar Siding, Omniboard, Pressboard, and all other wood siding has a higher probability of water damage. Contact us today for a free inspection and honest opinion of your exterior condition.
What is the best siding?
Honestly, the answer is different for every homeowner. James Hardie Fiber Cement siding is great for some people while Vinyl Siding is great for others. Let us tell you the pros and cons of both products. Contact us today for a free exterior inspection and unbiased opinion.
I’m selling my home. Should I reside before I put my home on the market?
Chances are the buyer is going to try and negotiate pricing with you. If you have LP Siding (Louisiana Pacific), Cedar Siding, T1-11 Panel Siding, and all other wood sidings, an inspector will find something wrong with your siding. If you have James Hardie Plank Fiber Cement, was it installed per Hardie Guidelines? We will fully inspect your exterior and give you our honest opinion. Work directly with the owners of the company Nick and Ian for the best option to meet your needs.
How often should I paint my siding?
Paint manufacturers have a “Limited Lifetime Warranty” on most products. Wood siding should be painted every 5-7 years. Fiber Cement (James Hardie, Allura, Certainteed) should be painted every 8-10 years and vinyl should never be painted!
Can you paint vinyl siding?
You can if you want it to warp and look melted. One of the cons to Vinyl is the color you pick is the color you see until you reside your home but you save thousands by not painting every 7-10 years.
What if you find dry rot when tearing off my siding?
We charge a fair and reasonable “Time and Material” rates when unforeseen issues come up within the project.
Does my home have Lead base paint?
Homes built before 1978 may have lead based paint. We can test your home for Lead Based Paint while we are on site. We are lead certified to remove any siding containing Lead based paint safely.
Do you offer financing?
Yes! Financing is a great option in order to get your project done sooner than later. We offer financing through Greensky and you can get approved within minutes. We offer no interested if paid in full as well as low interest rates.
