Here's why the bricks on your house may be cracking.
Angie responds to a member who wants to know if she should remove rotted boards before installing new siding on her home.
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.
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
Owner, Tom Ghysel Siding Inc.
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.
Siding reviews in Nevada City
returned my call within 24 hours, and we setup an on-site visit to draw up a proposal, which was approx 2 weeks from first contact. Fairly quick visit, covered all the basics and answered my questions. wasn't overly salesy, and I don't mean this in a negative way, but refreshingly straight to the point, and left me with a quote that evening. I point out the 'salesy' as being someone in sales, I was very impressed with a few of the other providers, particular their sales presentations. Didn't get that with , and in hind-sight, maybe he is the master of the 'soft-sell'.
We agreed to terms, gave me a window for the job, and they showed up when promised. Workers did a thorough job, and walked me through the job upon close and final payment. House looks great, couldn't be happier. was in touch frequently, easy to reach, and his guys (and him) were always prompt, mindful, etc...
My only negative, and it's not a major one, is that I'm still picking up the occasional nail, and picked up quite a few the first week after completion.
Highly recommend, and will use in the near future for my garage doors.

The crew was very efficient and competent. The owner and project manager made frequent visits to the project site to ensure the quality of the job. We requested a refacing of our cement foundation. Although does not work with cement foundation, they were willing to subcontract the work to a very good and reliable cement contractor. Small problems were quickly resolved by the owner to our satisfaction. The job came out beautifully.
We were very happy with the professionalism of and highly recommend them!
, the president, was always available and checked on the work every day. His
advice and suggestions were excellent. We were notified when each section of

the crews were very experienced, worked hard and tidied up when finished. There
was not a moment's worry on our part. also did extras that were much
appreciated (relocated backdoor light, added a porch outlet, changed the garage
frame). He recommended and used the highest quality materials. The price was
very reasonable, but the value was superior. Highly recommended.
First, the best professional advice (from ) that we
have encountered. He is a graduate engineer, very smart, very experienced, very
dependable, always reachable, very quality conscious, very responsible for the
quality of the work performed. Could not ask for more. The workers have been
with him for years and we watched them in admiration. The work was performed
sooner than anticipated. The quality of materials chosen was tops.
We were very glad to have "discovered" Crystal
Exteriors. We were frustrated in finding an excellent contractor. We had had
offers that ranged from one-half to twice as much as what we paid. Most
importantly, we had zero confidence in the people that were making those
offers. is top notch. We had not met anyone like him.
There were things that were changed along the way, and the crew were accommodating. Initially, I wanted the boards to be installed in a board and style in a 12" width. When measured the boards, he advised me that it would look too busy with that width and to go with 18". I trusted his judgment, and it turned out beautifully. Also, guarantees his work. A few weeks after they finished, the roof trim they replaced seemed to curl up, just a bit, I called, and they came to take care of it promptly.
Other contractor were not willing to work with my some of my requests, such as using a different brand of paint than they are use to or installing the siding in a board and style. and his assistant, , were very helpful and friendly. Helpful and friendly but was willing to do what they can to make their clients satisfied.
After all, if you're thinking of paying for something equal to the cost of a small car, you should be confident that what you're going to get will make you happy, and the process should be as stress-free as possible.
