So, how long should a siding installation take when done carefully by an expert crew like Hawthorn Exteriors? Re-siding your home is a big project, so you shouldn’t listen to contractors who try to rush things to make a quick sale. We’d like to go over some of our installation details and give you a ballpark estimate of what you can expect from working with us.
Hawthorn Exterior’s Siding Installation Procedure
A siding project will take competent siding crews roughly one or two weeks to complete. Granted, the variation depends on things like the weather, home size and complexity, and the materials you choose. We take our time with things because we use premium building materials, but it generally coincides with this basic procedure.
- Site Inspection
The first thing we do is set up an initial meeting and go over your goals and expectations. This is a lower-pressure way for us to get to know one another and explain our competencies. If you show any interest in our services, we’ll do a site inspection. This lets us learn what we need to do to give you the best siding work within budget parameters.
Once we know what it’ll take to side your home, we come up with a project proposal. This gives you a chance to look over neat digital renderings, choose styles and textures, and discuss costs.
- Product Installation
Here’s when we get to work hanging siding. While we do this, we’ll keep you updated with daily progress reports.
- Cleanup and Walkthrough
We won’t leave your home a mess full of loose siding materials and nails. We also do final walkthroughs and review the important service warranties.
- Lifetime Warranty & 100% Customer Satisfaction
Once it’s done, you’re free to enjoy a brand-new exterior. Again, we promise lifetime warranties and 100% Customer Satisfaction.

Reasons You Might Be Ready for Siding Replacement
How do you know if you should get new siding for your home?
- Lots of cracks, punctures, and storm damage.
- Bacterial/fungal overgrowth in the form of mold, mildew, and algae (especially on wood and vinyl siding).
- Color fading, peeling, or chipping.
- Insect damage such as termites, carpenter bees, powder post beetles, and ants.
- Woodpecker holes, especially on wood siding.
- Your energy efficiency really declines.
The other big reason to upgrade your siding is to improve your home’s curb appeal with a modern look like fiber cement.
