A professional siding installation process is one of the most vital components of any siding replacement project. You can have a quality siding product, but it is only as good as the team that installs it.
James Hardie siding, in particular, requires specialist equipment and hands-on experience for a successful installation.
A professional siding installation involves a transparent process, a communicative team, and a final walk-through to answer any questions.
A Professional Siding Installation Process Starts with a Home Walk Through
When you contact us to make an appointment, we will meet you at your home for a walk-through. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and gives us an idea of your style, vision, and pain points. We also take photos and measurements of your home for our 3D rendering process.
Once we have put together the 3D rendering, we will set up a design meeting with you. This is where we chat about siding styles, colors, hardware, and other decorative elements.
We will also have a line-by-line proposal that you can look at with the rendering so we can include everything you want within your budget. This proposal is comprehensive, which means there will be no hidden costs. With most remodeling projects, there are surprises, but we will always communicate with you about how to proceed.
Siding Installation: On Site
On day one of a professional siding installation process, the materials will arrive, and the crew will begin their setup.
I love meeting with the homeowners and walking around the house.
- We will go through each component of what we’re going to do and how we will do it.
- The crew Foreman will meet the homeowners to open up that relationship as he will be on site.
- I will explain how the process looks day-to-day so that you are comfortable and confident with how the project will proceed.
- We explain that the area will be a construction site and be noisy.
A siding replacement can be stressful for homeowners because they don’t do this often. We will also give you daily updates in the form of videos and photos. Here we will show you what was completed and the plans for the next day. This helps you understand the timeline, which can be anything from 3 days to 3 weeks.
Communication is key, and we will also let you know if the crew won’t be there due to inclement weather. With open lines of communication, we can address any unknown issues and discuss the best options.
If there are unseen complications, like a rotted frame that needs to be replaced, we generally only charge the cost of labor and materials. We are not here to make a profit off of your misery and want to repair the damage and move on with your siding replacement.
Wrapping Up the Project
Toward the end of the project, we will do another walk-through. That is time for us to answer any questions and point out the details included in your project.
We want you to feel good about what we’ve done and that we have lived up to the manufacturer’s best practices and specifications. This is a great time for you to bring up any concerns you have, and it acts as a way for us to double-check our work.
