What Does a Professional Siding Design and Proposal Process Entail?

Table of Contents

When preparing for a siding replacement, you want to find a company that offers professional siding design and a detailed and transparent proposal process.

When the proposal is vague, it confuses homeowners and can lead to hidden, unexpected costs. A professional company will give you all the details upfront and communicate any changes with you.

The right company is as invested in the success of your project as you are, and it shows.

Professional Siding Design Made Easy

When I started Hawthorn, it was important to me to build a process that was easy for clients to understand, from design to quoting. I also wanted them to be excited about their project rather than anxious.

For most homeowners, replacing the siding on their home is a need and a substantial cost outlay. Our job is to provide all the information our clients need, answer their questions, and build a project that fits their budget.

The First Appointment

You can email or call us to set up an appointment time that works for you. I will walk around your home with you, listen to your ideas, assess your pain points, and answer questions. My goal isn’t to sell you anything. Instead, I want you to have all the information you need because a siding replacement is a considerable investment.

Walking around with you helps me understand your style, what you like and don’t like, and what you’ve envisioned for your home. There are also so many ways to customize your home, and it’s my job to give you options you may not have considered.

The Proposal

After our appointment, I will combine the details and measurements to create a 3D rendering of your finished project and schedule a design meeting with you.

Some of the elements decided in the design meeting are:

  • Choosing a siding profile
  • Picking on colors
  • Deciding on the trim width
  • Hardware options

With these elements, we can create a visual of what your home will look like. Side-by-side with the 3D rendering, we will go through the proposal. This is a line-by-line list of all the elements and expenses involved with your project. This helps us fit the design elements you want into your budget.

Some clients choose a value-engineered project, which is more basic while still offering high performance. We also have financing options to help you get the siding replacement you want.

I don’t have any ulterior motives when meeting with you other than trying to give you precisely what you want that fits within your budget. This process takes about seven days, and we will only take up as much of your time as you want to spend with us.

Our goal is to give you all the information you need to make the best decision, but more importantly, the right decision for you.
