Avoid Installation Mistakes

Hardie Siding Is The Best Siding For Your Home, But Only If It's Installed By A Professional

Hiring siding contractors to install your Hardie siding is the best choice to make sure it’s done correctly, so you can enjoy the benefits of some of the best siding produced. Even though many contractors may say they can do the installation right, there are still some significant mistakes that can be made, even by professionals. When you are considering hiring someone to install your Hardie siding, be sure you keep an eye out for these common errors that even siding contractors make, so you can best protect your investment.

Touch-ups are needed on every Hardie siding job once it’s nearly done. It helps hide fastener locations and gives a cleaner and more polished appearance, but since the paint on Hardie siding is cured in their plant, the touch-up colors can differ slightly. The best siding contractors will ensure the paint matches exactly so that the final result matches the value of your investment. Learn More

The Signs of Inexperience

There Are So Many Bad Siding Contractors in St Louis, Learn More About The Red Flags

Before you commit to a siding installation contractor, it’s important to know whether or not they are trustworthy and will have your back. Unfortunately, there are a lot of companies out there that talk a big talk, but when it comes time to provide a service, they fall short. But how do you know if you’re signing a contract with a legitimate company or if they’re going to pull a fast one and not fix your problems?

The old saying goes “Jack of all trades, but master of none” which is, unfortunately, true far too often in the construction industry. While it is tempting to go with a contractor that has knowledge in many areas, a professional that specializes in just a few areas is often the way to go. If you want your siding replaced and the job to be done well, it’s best to go with someone that focuses on that area. If you’re unsure if the contractor knows what they’re doing, as lots of questions. They will either be able to confidently answer, or they will get caught up and you’ll be able to tell they aren’t as much of an expert as they let on. Learn More

Does Hawthorn Home Exteriors offer vinyl siding?

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.

What benefits will new siding offer me?

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. 

What is House wrap and do I need it?

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. 

Why do so many siding contractors have a bad reputation?

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. 

Do you offer financing?

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. 

Should I replace my siding or windows first?

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.
