Most people think that putting siding on their Texas home is an easy and simple process but that is hardly the case if it is done right. To be quite frank the right way is the only way we do things. Vasquez Remodeling and Construction has been replacing siding in Dallas and Houston areas for many years now and in that time we have left behind a long list of satisfied customers. We pride ourselves on customer service and paying attention to even the smallest details as we work. The sales team and skilled construction techs we have assembled combine to form a workforce that is second to none when it comes to siding installation in the Greater Houston Area.
The contractor you hire for your siding job is every bit as important as the type of siding material you choose to use for the job. Maybe even more so because even the highest quality siding will not look right if not installed properly.
Here is a checklist of some things to look at before hiring any siding contractor:
In Dallas and Houston areas all contractors are required to have a license in order to do business. Make sure you ask to see the license of any company you are looking to have put your house siding on for you.
Any good siding contractor will be able to present you a portfolio with some of the work they have completed. Take a good look at this and also ask for references from them at the same time.
Ask any prospective siding contractor how long from the date of the deposit they will start the work. If it will be a long wait then look elsewhere to get the job done.
This is not a deal breaker as far as installing siding goes but the more reputable siding dealers will have an established location such as a showroom.
Check to make sure the siding company you are considering hiring has all the necessary insurances such as general liability and workers comp.
Ask the siding contractor how long they have been in business. Longevity is a sign of doing good work and a stability.
Find out what percentage of the work is done by subcontractors. Some companies do not even do any of the work themselves. They are simply front men for the work.
These are all good things to know before choosing who will do your Dallas or Houston home siding project for you.
It is hard to put a number on the exact cost of a siding job because there are so many variables that go into the work. There are many choices in the types of siding you can choose and these come in a wide variety of price ranges. Each contractor will most likely use different steps in the process which will impact the cost of the labor too. Size of the project is also a big factor.
Don’t stress too much over not having a cost estimate right away. Our expert and knowledgeable sales staff will discuss the project with you, get pertinent information such as the size of your home and even discuss with you what you want the finished siding project to look like. Once these things have been determined it is then pretty simple for us to get you a written estimate of the cost for us to do your Dallas or Houston Metropolitan Area siding work for you.

Here are some of the more popular types of siding that are skilled techs do a great job of installing on homes in the Dallas andHouston areas.
This is by far the most popular type of siding found throughout this part of Texas. It is the least expensive of all the different siding types and it also holds up to the tough Dallas and Houston area weather fairly well. It is simple to install and looks great on just about any style of home. Advancements in the composition of vinyl siding have made it so it lasts longer than ever before too.
Speaking of lasting forever; if you put tough and durable hardiplank siding on your home you will most likely never have to ever do a siding job on your house ever again. What makes this product so durable? The answer to that is in its cement composite make-up. It is some pretty strong siding to say the least. It looks great too and it’s made in a wide assortment of colors. Hardie Plank siding can even be manufactured to mimic the good looks of wood, stucco and metal based siding products.
This is the first type of siding that was ever put on homes that was made of something other than wood. Even though it has lost a lot of its popularity it is still a good looking product that can be installed at an affordable price.
In the right setting there are few types of siding that can match the natural beauty of cedar siding products. They give you some nice advantages because they can be cut to fit exactly and they look great without the high cost that synthetic shingles have.
Wood siding has been around for a very long time and is not going away anytime soon. Depending on the type of wood used and the method of staining this can be a great looking low cost alternative to those who are working with a tight siding budget.
