Below Are Answers to The Top 7 Siding FAQ’s
1: How do we repair your siding?
We will measure your existing siding height and width, cut sections and install the new siding.
2. My siding is old, what will you do if they don’t sell it anymore?
We’ll 1st check with our specialty lumber yards and if they can’t find it we go to plan B. This is a common problem with older homes and we usually recommend replacing the rotten area with hardiplank or wood that’s close in width.

Yes. After the siding is installed the new areas are caulked and touched up with paint.
4. Will the paint match?
The paint is matched from a piece of old siding. Depending on the age of the paint, fading from the sun and color of your house, and paint sheen, the new area may not match exactly, but it will be close.

Once the rotten siding is removed, you will be advised if more insulation or moisture barrier is needed.

Depending on the amount of siding that needs to be replaced, most repairs average 1 to 2 days.
