"He showed up and looked at the job in April, gave me a quote (note: nothing in writing), and says "I'll come by and do it some Saturday in May and let you know when I'm" done". Seemed a little odd to me that he didn't do anything in writing but given his Angie's List rating, I agreed to have him do the job. His quote seemed pretty high, but I wanted the job done right. Then June came around and I hadn't heard from him, so I called and he says "we can fit you in next week", and we agree to having the job done on 6/17/2014. He asks about payment and I tell him I can swing by with a check, or send him one, whatever he preferred. Again, NO CONTRACT, NOTHING IN WRITING. I didn't hear from him that day, so I swung by the house (I don't live there, it's an apartment building that I own) and saw nothing had been done. I called him and he says he's not going to do the job because he thinks I wouldn't pay him. I was completely floored by this, and can only assume it was a weak excuse because he didn't want the small job. You don't want it? fine. don't insult me. I had a check in my wallet, prepared to settle up with him and instead he insults my character? I have a credit rating in the high 700's and I own multiple properties, and pay my trades promptly. I could provide phone numbers of people I've used for years that could vouch for this, but instead he questions my character and hangs up on me. What a complete unprofessional. Why don't you ask for a frigging deposit and have a contract like a professional?? All good in the end though, I ended up hiring someone else (R&G Contracting), who was hundreds of dollars less than what
was going to charge? We put together an agreement for the work, I paid half up front, and paid the rest when the job was finished. Just what I would expect from a professional. Not what I experienced with
My advice is don't go with
, the guy flaunts his Angie's List badge, but I found him to be a complete unprofessional. I'm so glad he snaked out of the job as I found someone waaaay better.

"Super. This is a great company.

" responded promptly to every one of my calls. He organized things such that he could fit us in straightaway, and he even got a friend of his (
) to come and finish a tricky siding project (corners, arch windows, strange gradients, etc.) The crew turned up on time, worked efficiently until the job was done, and left everything clean. I give this company the highest recommendation.

"The owner of the company was very knowledgable about product and informative of process. We choose clay for color and it was spot on with sample provided. Most days work crew of five" arrived by 7:00 am worked until six they were courteous, friendly and total job was completed in eight days. As our property line in close to nieghbors yard workers made sure any debries was cleaned up at end of each day. We were allowed to change light fixtures without additional charge because old ones did not matched new vinyl color. Roof over covered back porch and drain pipes were done after siding was completed in 5 hours. Would I use Pros Homes Service again? Absolutely Yes

How much does siding cost to replace?

Siding is critical in protecting your home from weather and structural damage. Understand when you need to replace your siding and how much it costs.

Siding tip: Ask your siding installer for samples of grades, colors and textures and view them outside at different times of the day. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Paul E.)

Siding

Unless they are made of brick or stone, most homes are protected by some form of exterior siding. Traditionally made of wood, siding now comes in several materials including aluminum and vinyl. Each has its strengths and weaknesses to consider.

More homeowners are choosing fiber cement over vinyl siding or real wood due to its durability and natural look. Discover other reasons to consider it.

Especially if your home's vinyl siding is in the shade, it will require regular cleanings to prevent mold and mildew from appearing. (Photo by Katelin Kinney)

Vinyl siding is durable and easily cleaned. It just takes some elbow grease, or a high-powered pressure washer! Either way, read up on how to best clean vinyl.

Call and ask your contractors these questions.  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  It is your money and home.  I would ask for references and take a look at samples of their work (especially the low bidder).  Make sure all are licensed and carry the required insurance.  You don't want to get a bad stucco job, so do your homework first before selecting a contractor; which may not be one of these.  Check with your local building department and local building exchange for more references on these and other contractors.  Good luck.

     Both choices have plusses and minuses.

     I am partial to vinyl siding myself if it is put on by a contractor that pays attention to details in sealing against water intrusion. The better grades of vinyl stand up to the weater very well. The siding on my own home is over 15 years old and shows no signs of fading or any changes due to sun exposure and have had no problems with water entry around windows or doors. It does not dent like the old aluminum siding did or break if hit by a ball or a rock thrown by a lawnmower. As long as you save a few extra panels even if a rock was to be broken by something like a rock it is easier to repair. I will add that the earlier vinyl sidings did tend to fade but I have seen homes I sided after putting additions on that were done 20+ years ago and they look fine. Those closer to the 30 year mark not as good on the fading though. I gennerally never use the cheaper panels though so I can not vouch for them but I think that as long as it is one of the better manufaturers it seems to be just panel thickness. Just a personal opinion but if you are looking for added insulation I would use one of the 4X8 or 2X8 panels rather than the insulated siding. I can not see how insulation on the back of each panel with all the joints can do much more than stiffen the panels and I would think it would hamper the movement of the panels with changes in temperature.

     As for Hardi or any of the other fibre cement sidings it is way more costly and relys on caulk or tar paper strips between the panels to seal out water. It is not very forgiving on install mistakes and must be done perfectly to get the full Hardi warranty. I was just involved with a job where the contractor did not put a few pieces of flashing in properly and his guys lapped a corner board incorrectly and the Hardi lifetime warranty was void. Another thing I did not like is that it is put in with a blind nailing method and even though this house was done to specs in this area of the install the bottom of the siding was not tight to the lower courses in many spots. They did install it to the maximum exposure and I believe if they had gone to a larger panel or even lessened the exposure by 1/2" it probably would have been fine. The other thing I saw was the paint seems to be prone to scratching durring install and to me the house looked like it needed a paint job even though siding was new. I do think that if painted after install a paint job would last many years as the product is very stable and does not expand and contract much. The one big plus I see is it tend to HELP in and area prone to fires such as some ares out West.  I put the word help in capitals because it will not fireproof the home but may stop ignition from sparks and moderate heat exposure.

Alside is the far superior siding. Another option with the Alside is the Center Lock panel. It locks in the center of the panel, eliminating wind blow-offs,has a 3/4 inch profile, and carries the same warranty as the Charter Oak

I contacted 3 roofers and chose
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
due to the no-nonsense manner in which the inspection and quote was rendered, their location and work within my local community, and their fair pricing.
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
and one of his foremen performed the estimate and I was impressed by
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
's conscientiousness. For instance, he cautioned against certain adjustments to the gutters so as not to create a hazard for my neighbors (one of the other contractors was oblivious to this). Capital Const. offered a reasonable discount to undertake the two projects together, but I got the impression that their price was already reasonably set. They were scheduled to start work on Monday, Nov. 8th, but inclement weather set in and they weren't able to start until Thursday, Nov. 11th. I was glad they did not attempt to work until it was safe and clear to do so. On the 11th they stripped all the siding and roofing off, which created huge piles along the perimeter of the house, but by the end of the day they'd cleaned and carted away everything. I bought the crew lunch on Thursday and Friday and we ate together in my kitchen. One or two of the guys were locals (my new neighbors), and others were from
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
living locally, or from elsewhere. They were all very friendly and polite; I got the sense that they worked hard for an honest day's pay. The continued the work on Saturday, Nov. 13th and then recommenced on Monday. They'd more or less finished by mid week, but there was still some finishing work to be completed by the painter on the rear side. While working on the rear side window trimming (this was also part of the contracted work) they had offered to perform some touch-ups on the rear siding where some gaps were found; to fill them in and paint them. This last part took some time to complete, about two weeks in fact. The painter had left his ladder and paint cans in the back yard in the meantime, which I was not too happy about. I had to follow up on Nov.27th to make sure the job would be finished. The painter eventually did come back the week of the 30th, but a side vent was not inspected/secured as requested. This was finally done on the 8th of December, but he left his paint cans and caulking behind (

behind my Adirondack Chair). I did not report this to
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, because I did not find them until much later and thought perhaps I might need the paint for one reason or another in the future. There were times initially, before the project began, whenI thought
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
could have been more communicative/responsive, but as the project began I heard from him regularly. Initially we'd communicated via e-mail, which I thought was very convenient, but once the project began,
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I kept in touch mostly via SMS text messaging on our mobile phones. This was also very convenient. I gave
Boston Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
B grades on responsiveness for the few times where I felt I had to chase them for an update, but I only felt this way before the project started and at the end. I also gave them a B for punctuality, which is because despite their kindness offering to touch up the rear siding, it took too long to finish and the paint cans were left behind. Overall, though, I was very pleased with their service and workmanship and would use them again as well as recommend them to others.

The owner was always available by phone or in person to discuss the details of the job and to respond to questions and comments as the work progressed. This was a large job with a lot of details to oversee and different types of skills needed. I was impressed with the results at each phase of the job. As a single parent I was not interested in hiring and overseeing several people to do the different types of work needed on my house. I was thrilled to find

The estimator was very sincere and communicated well. They are well known in the area to truly focus on detailed aesthetics of a home to make it historically correct. During the evaluation, the employee completed a thorough job. The Better Business Bureau rates them very well. I did not hire them as I did not need extensive work as I only wanted a general, middle of the road job. Their pricing was way higher than their competition.

I was pretty sure that we would go with him. His professionalism and attentiveness, coupled with the fact that some of the other places I called for quotes were so much harder to get hold of, sold us on him right away. Once we had the contract signed he continued to be just as attentive. I liked the fact that he was easy to access by email too. He actually talked us out of buying a few things that he didn't think we needed and would have raised our costs significantly. I'd never had a contractor do that before! We had a great experience. The few things that we needed fixed after they were finished were taken care of right away, and
