What Should You Expect to See in Replacement Siding Cost Estimates and Contracts

Table of Contents

Now it’s time to examine what you should expect to see in replacement siding cost estimates whenever you begin a contract with a company like All Star Products. This is a pretty critical stage in the game, and we always recommend that homeowners make sure they comprehend everything before signing a contract.

Replacement Siding Cost Estimates

One of the hallmarks of our approach to the contract process is something called Line-Item-Pricing. This means that we will go through every fine detail (line by line), be it color, design, material, etc., and show you exactly what it would cost. We don’t like to leave a whole lot of room for guessing or confusion.

Does this take a long while to do?

Yes, it’s true that this approach might extend the length of the contract phase a little. It’s totally worth it, however. While our competitors may present you with a succinct one-page contract, and ours might have multiple pages, they don’t always disclose every fine point such as problems that might arise during the installation phase.

Overall, it’s very beneficial to spend some time making sure you know what’s going to happen with materials, how long things will take, how often we can come back to make adjustments, and so forth. We sometimes talk to clients who have gone through our competitors, only to find out they didn’t know anything about what the contractor did to their home. Don’t let that happen to you in the siding project that costs you tens of thousands of dollars.

Contracts, Warranties, and Transparency

We choose to operate our business with complete transparency throughout the entire contract process, which includes the estimate, warranties, and every fine detail along the way. Our warranties include both a manufacturer warranty (covering you for the materials) as well as our lifetime guarantee commitments.

As we do this with you, we want you to understand the step-by-step approach we’ll take to renovating your home. For example, we’ll walk you through how we take down the old siding, look for structural issues like wood rot or water damage, then show you how we apply siding precisely to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Trust Should Be the Deciding Factor

Why do we bother with all this effort and diligence? We do this because it establishes trust between the homeowner and the contractor. Since that’s not the easiest thing to do over a short period of time, we think the extra educational effort will demonstrate to you that we aren’t just bugging you for a quick sale.

On the other hand, make sure when you choose a contractor, to keep an eye out for an excessive sales slant in lieu of explanation and education. You shouldn’t do business with a fellow that won’t leave your living room even after a four-hour sales pitch.

In our experience at All Star Products, we may not close a deal during the first meeting. Usually, it doesn’t make much sense to rush things and leave a homeowner uncomfortable regarding a big investment into their home that could cost $50,000 to $70,000 and beyond.

Communication is fundamental throughout the contract and design process, and you should be able to tell that we have your best interests in mind.
