Siding

 

While the materials for most siding are highly durable and long-lasting, there will be an occasion where you will need to repair the siding on your home. Below are factors that will cause the cost of the repair to fluctuate.

Type of Material
Wood clapboard siding is among the oldest types of house siding. Its disadvantage is that it is not low maintenance, requiring painting and caulking to keep it looking good and functional. Additionally, it can be damaged by rot, insects, warping or splitting.
Aluminum siding is very low maintenance but it is prone to denting and being a bit noisier than its other siding counterparts, but is moderate in price and aesthetically beautiful. Aluminum is a bit more expensive not only to install, but to replace as well. If your aluminum is painted, it may be difficult to match the color exactly.
The benefits of vinyl siding, first and foremost, are lead by its durability and strength when it comes to various weather conditions. It doesn’t decay nor does it attract termites as wood does. It does not require painting like metal or wood siding, and for the most part it is cleaned when it rains. Vinyl siding is the easiest to replace although it might be hard to match the repaired section exactly.
Cement Fiber is the latest development in residential siding. It’s durable, very low maintenance, made from recyclable materials so it’s “green” and it’s not subject to rot or insect damage. Expect to pay an additional 5% – 14% in material and installation costs for complex installation configurations and patterns.

Extent of damage
If areas are too rotten to hold a nail they will need to be replaced before the siding is installed. The replacement can be as simple as cutting it out and fixing with plywood – it doesn’t have to be pretty because you are going to put siding over it. Additionally, most contractors will want to install some kind of building paper, such as Tyvak) over your wood and under the siding to increase the waterproofing. Make sure that this kind of fix is included in your siding bid.
Locating matching material
Hopefully, you will have some siding left over from your original installation. Damaged areas can be cut out, and holes can be patched with extra panels of siding from the original installation. If the original siding is not available, it may be best to use panels from a less visible area of the home to repair damage in more visible spots. The panel that has been moved can then be replaced with the closest match available. Keep in mind, it may not match color perfectly, especially if your siding has been exposed to the elements for a few years.

The repair
Many times your cost estimate from your contractor does not include costs for removal and disposal of existing siding and trim, structural modifications or repairs, and any work on soffit or fascia. Make sure that you ask for those. If you are looking for a vinyl siding installer in South Jersey, We would be glad to assist you!

Excellent quality work, fair price, punctual and professional. Once we observed how well the work was being done in replacing our roof we quickly asked for addional exterior work, and it was completed at the same time. Very happy with the results.

I cannot tell you how thrilled I was in hiring P&G Renovations. Unlike another contractor who priced themselves out, P&G gave a fair price estimate for replacing my roof on my commercial building, but a fair price with utmost quality in workmanship. From the first time you meet sales Manager, David Creato, you can sense the honesty and integrity of this company. I know that I will use P&G for all my roofing repairs/replacement in the future. If I can give P&G more than a 5 Star rating, I would! I have no hesitation or reservation in recommending P&G to all my friends and family.

Had a wonderful experience with P&G Renovations. David came out the same day I called about my vinyl siding repair needs. His repair couldn't look any better, he did a super job for my wife and I. David even went the extra mile for us when he noticed some other loose siding and made that repair also. We would refer P&G Renovations to everybody in need of their services.

We had some damage after the major windstorm that came through and they came right out to tarp it over until our insurance company could come. We then hired them to finish the work and couldn't be happier. Dave and his crew were professional, reliable and our property was cleaned up after perfectly. Highly recommend!

We had a great experience with P&G. They came out within 24 hours, literally hours before another storm, and did some exterior work. They were really professional and we greatly appreciated them coming out on such short notice.
