St Louis’ Most Experienced James Hardie Siding Remodelers
Over the last two decades, I’ve worked with thousands of homeowners and exterior contractors across the midwest to offer solutions for their home remodeling needs. I have worked directly for James Hardie and Pella Windows, as well as working for a local remodeling contractor for 12 years. Over the last 5+ years, I enjoyed working directly for James Hardie Building Products as a Regional Territory Manager to train, consult and improve hundreds of contractor businesses all across the country.
My time at James Hardie allowed me to not only become a siding and exterior remodeling expert, but gave me an insider look at how other contractors operate around the country. I’ve seen what great looks like, and I’ve seen what not so great looks like. And, sadly, the not so great seems to be the status quo. The home improvement industry has a scarred reputation, which can make selecting a contractor a scary decision. It’s easy to register a business and call yourself a contractor. Unfortunately, many of these so called “professionals” are in it for the wrong reasons and view the customer as another opportunity for a paycheck. There is a lack of innovation to learn new best practices to build extensive knowledge of quality products. We innovate with eagerness to provide a first class customer experience.

Vinyl siding become a popular option throughout the 90’s and 2000’s for two simple reasons. 1. It was a cheap alternative to wood siding and 2. Offered lower maintenance costs that wood siding. Unfortunately that is where the benefits end. Vinyl is highly prone to fading, especially in darker colors and does not perform well in extreme weather changes, like we have in St. Louis. The return on investment is typically low with vinyl siding as well because it is a known commodity product. Vinyl also has a very basic and “entry level” appearance to it. We prefer James Hardie Siding products that are durable, have a rich long lasting finish and have a proven track record for high performance and return on your investment.
Aside from transforming the look of your home, new siding can offer many benefits. James Hardie Siding is an excellent moisture management system. We get a lot of humidity, mold and mildew and James Hardie acts as a sealed system on your home. It allows the moisture from the inside to escape but does not allow it to enter and get trapped in the walls, which is what creates mold and rotting of the building structure.
Tyvek has long been the Kleenex brand for house wrap and it has become a critical component to your exterior wall performance. Until the last few years, house wrap was not required in residential building codes and most of the homes we work on that were built in the 90’s and earlier have no house wrap or weather barrier installed, which can cause a lot of mold and rotting to the wall sheathing and framing. The concept behind a good house wrap or weather barrier is that it allows the moisture to escape your home but does not allow it to enter. We install a high performance weather barrier (house wrap) on EVERY project to ensure your home is protected and performs like it should.
In short, lack of communication. Many contractors are designed to be sales organizations, sell sell sell and keep selling. There tends to be very little thought put into the customer once the contract is signed. This also extends into the installation phase, which is one of the most important and complex components of the relationship between you and your contractor. We recognize that you don’t replace your siding or windows often and want you to feel at ease throughout the process. We communicate with our customers every day while we are working on your home. Not just at contract signing and final payment collection. We work hard so that replacing your siding and windows can be enjoyable, not stressful.
Yes! We have partnered with multiple companies to provide you with easy financing options, such as 18 months Same-As-Cash and longer, equal payment terms.
Replacing siding and windows at the same time is an excellent idea. It is typically best to replace your windows first and then the siding. We like going in this order because we can ensure an excellent, water and air tight seal around the exterior perimeter of the windows before installing the new siding and trim.
