Siding that enhances your home
A house is one of your biggest investments. And as with any other kind of investment, you want to take good care of it. Maintaining and updating your home can help preserve its value so that you could make your money back when you decide to sell it. Looking after your home and attending to any imperfections can help protect it from further damages. That is especially important when you are located in a climate like one in Illinois, where strong wind, heavy rain and exhausting summers are not uncommon.
Installing beautiful and durable siding is one of the most practical ways to add value and take care of your home. It is often recommended by real estate agents to update the siding before putting the house on the market as it adds curb appeal and completely refreshes the property’s exterior. High quality and professionally installed siding materials also protect it from weather extremes and they can last for decades without fading or losing functionality.
One of the most exciting parts of picking out your new siding is the wide variety of colors, styles and materials available. Vertical and horizontal planks, shingles, sheets, any shade and finish that you can dream of - every homeowner will find something that makes the design statement they want. However, if at any point you find yourself lost among all of the options, our friendly team can help you choose one that best suits your style, budget and home.
We work with reliable and high quality materials provided by top-notch siding manufacturers. Some of the brands we work with include: Mastic, Certainteed, Royal, Alside, Variform, LP SmartSide, Crane, and James Hardie. Most of these products come with manufacturer warranties and our team is qualified to install them with unmatched attention to detail.

Creating and maintaining close relationships with our clients has provided us with extensive feedback and that is what helps us improve our services so that they create the most value for you.

Siding installation and replacement services
Exterior siding is what protects your home from the negative effects of the weather and provides insulation, keeping your home warm, dry and energy efficient. There may be many reasons for replacing it. Maybe you want to improve the curb appeal of your house. Maybe you have noticed breaking, peeling, or, even worse, rotting on your exterior. Maybe you feel that your current siding is simply not serving its purpose effectively anymore. No matter the reason, you have come to the right place.
Our company has been transforming the exteriors of houses around Chicago for more than a decade, and in those years we have completed over 500 successful projects. While we perform our siding installation and replacement projects with top quality products from leading manufacturers, our efficiency and dedication to the business allows us to offer the best quality to price ratio in the area. Most of the materials our company works with come with manufacturer warranties, and while giving your house a new look, our crew always keep the worksite clean so that your exterior renovation disturbs your everyday life as little as possible.
There are many siding options available on the market, and our crew can not only install the materials, but also help you determine which products are best suited for your home. We are well aware of exterior renovation trends and have first hand knowledge of the pros and cons that come with different types of siding. While vinyl is one of the most popular choices across the U.S. for its low-price and durability, other types of siding, such as fiber cement, are increasing in popularity. Some of these types are easier to maintain, while others come with benefits like resistance to fire and increased durability. Some have better insulation and moisture control, while others are more environmentally friendly. Some siding materials are better suited for certain house styles and climates. Making the right choice for your home also requires taking a look at other factors, such as local availability, types of finishes used, recycling potential, embodied energy of the product and many more.
Even though more and more information is available for homeowners, they are often overwhelmed with the broad selection available and don’t always have the time to look at life cycle assessments or Environmental Product Declarations. Our residential siding services are designed to fulfill all of your needs which is why we are prepared to answer all of your questions and help you choose the materials that keep your home well insulated, protected, and provide the look that you want within your price range.
Signs that you should consider replacing your siding
We are often asked about how we can tell if siding needs replacement. Even though noticing damage early on requires extensive expertise, here is a list of warning signs that indicate that you should consider replacing your siding:
- Rotting or warping
- Bubbles underneath the surface
- Broken or loose boards
- Cracks and gaps
- Fungus, mold or mildew on the exterior of your home
- Your siding fading more quickly and requires more frequent painting
- Peeling paint and loose wallpaper inside the house
However, if you don’t notice any of these signs of damage on the exterior of your home, you may want to check for some more subtle signs of underperformance. For example, if you can feel drafts when you stand next to your windows or walls, that may be an indicator that you should consider calling a siding contractor. Replacing your siding can not only eliminate drafts thus making your home more comfortable, but also save you money on heating and cooling.
If you think that your house needs some improvement, you can always reach out to a professional who will perform an inspection of the exterior of your home. Experienced contractors can notice damage before it even becomes visible, offer cost-efficient solutions and restore the structural integrity of your home.
If you are thinking about taking on a siding replacement or installation, one of the concerns you probably have is the cost. Unfortunately, we cannot answer that without knowing the specifics about your project, since the siding price depends on many factors, such as:
- Material quality. While cheap siding can save you money in the short-term, more expensive materials in many cases are more durable, thus requiring less frequent replacement which saves you money in the long run.
- Size and shape of your home. The larger and more complicated the structure, the more materials and time it will take to replace or install new materials.
- Removing or laying over old siding. Some types of siding can be installed over old siding, while others need old materials to be removed before installation. Laying over old siding costs less as it takes less time to complete the renovation.
Each home is unique, and so is the price of renovating it. We provide estimates only after inspecting your home, so that the cost is accurate and there are no misunderstandings later on. To know for sure how much your project is going to cost, call us at 630-230-8533 to arrange your free estimate. We also offer a flexible financing program so that you wouldn’t have to worry about how you are going to afford the siding you need.
Ability to manage time efficiently allows us to complete projects in a timely manner, and the meticulous nature of our crew ensures that your exterior renovation is completed to the highest of standards, no matter what type of materials you pick.
Choosing a siding contractor
We understand that choosing a siding contractor might seem like a daunting task. You need to hire someone you can trust, someone with extensive knowledge and skill to apply that knowledge in practise. Your contractor should listen to your needs and be able to explain how they can attend to them. It’s recommended to interview a few different siding installers and ask them for estimates. Compare those estimates with your budget, but don’t hire solely on price. Take into account the way the contractor communicates with you, how long they have been in business and how other clients have evaluated them. This way you will be sure that you get the best price, quality and customer service.
It’s also a good idea to choose a local contractor. Hiring locally usually means lower prices, better communication and time-efficiency. Not to mention that a local contractor will be able to attend to your project more quickly and with more personal attention. It’s also a good idea to check their rating in popular contractor databases, such as Better Business Bureau, Houzz or Google+. Your contractor should also provide a written proposal that includes the price of the materials for your project, as well as labor and any other fees that the company may charge. Always ask if the contractor is licensed and bonded, and if they use subcontractors for the work they do.
Our company unites a team of professionals who enjoy the work they do and create a positive working environment. Working with high quality materials, installing them carefully and listening to your needs allows us to offer 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. We also offer free estimates that are honest and come without any hidden fees. And we never use subcontractors. If you have any concerns about our services, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line. Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
