There are reasons there are so many results when you search “siding company near me.” The first is that siding installation shouldn’t be a DIY job. As a siding company in both Nashville and Knoxville, we’ve seen the results of DIY siding installs and we’ve heard the stories about the poor outcomes. When you need new siding, a vinyl siding company is your best option for installation. Here’s why:
As vinyl siding company, we’ve invested in the right tools for the job. This includes more than just ladders. Most homes require scaffolding for proper siding installation. You will need a way to dispose of the old siding on your home – that may mean a rental dumpster or several trips to the dump.
In addition, you’ll need at least the following:
- Power saw
- Hand saw
- Scoring tool
- Punching and unlocking tools
- Chalk line
- Tape measure
You may also need tin snips and other tools. Although you may already own a few of these, think of the expense of investing in the rest, learning how to use them and storing them for the foreseeable future. Plus, you’ll need the right fasteners.
Training & Time
Do you already know how to install the brand and type of siding you’ve chosen? A vinyl siding company sells products they’re knowledgeable and trained on installing. That ensures the job is done right. How much training do you need to learn how to install your new siding? Where are you going to get that training? Once you’re confident, how long will it take you to actually remove your old siding and install the new siding? Do you really have the time to do it without leaving your home exposed to the elements?
Access and Warranty
Although you can purchase some brands of siding as a homeowner, not all manufacturers sell to anyone other than a vinyl siding company with proper training. This helps ensure that their products have a great reputation because they’re properly installed. And, if they do sell their products to you, make sure that they will honor their warranty in the event you need it if you plan on a DIY install.
