Money is important, but it's not everything. For example, it's not as important as honor and integrity. That's why we don't believe in, or use, pricing gimmicks. It's just not honest. We will never offer to give you three free windows when you purchase one. We aren't going to pretend to 'slash' prices just because it's January or February. How can one fully trust a company that utilizes these practices?
We work very hard for everything we earn, but we know that you do too. Our pricing policy is not glamorous, or exciting. But it is reasonable, consistent, professional and above all else, honest. Of course we're going to make a profit. If we don't, we simply won't be here to take care of you in the future.
Every quote we give includes the cost for materials. The reasonable price is only a small part of the equation. The real value is in the fact that we use only the very best products. A great price for inferior products is not a good value. We only install
siding. We only install
Marvin windows. We have chosen to use
TimberTech® decking materials. We don't offer a low quality option. Everything that is applied to your home is the very best quality we can find, right down to the nails.
The cost of labor is a significant portion of every price quoted. Our installation teams are highly trained and highly specialized professionals and are paid accordingly. Each one is a valued member of our company and is essential if we are to continue to provide the best results. In exchange for industry leading wages, we benefit from their growing experience and skill instead of a constant rotation of beginners. It's worth the extra money to us and it certainly is to our customers. They do a far better job and do it in less time. This is the real meaning of value.
We never, ever just tack up siding over the existing siding. That would mean your new siding would only be as secure as the old layer beneath it. The old siding is completely removed, insulation is installed (if desired), then a solid, stable substrate layer (OSB) is installed. Everything is then tightly sealed with the HardieWrap® moisture barrier system. Only then is the home ready to install the new siding. These procedures are not optional, they aren't an extra cost upgrade. They are all essential components of any quality job. Does it affect the final price? Of course it does. Yet, any proposal that does not include these critical steps is simply promoting a sub-standard result. What do you really want for your home?
When you get a free evaluation from Sideco, you will be able to trust that it was developed with fairness in mind. We will discuss the actual costs without any gimmicks or incredible 'discounts'. You will never be told that 'for only a few dollars more we can upgrade to....', we start at the top, there is nowhere higher to go. Isn't that really how you prefer to do business?
For most of us, cost is a factor. But, it isn't the only consideration. If you have more than one estimate, look at them and ask yourself a few simple questions:
1. Are the siding materials the same? If not, which is better?
2. Are the installation procedures the same?
3. Which is going to produce the best result?
4. Is the cheaper job really a value if it's not what you want?
5. If you're spending more are you getting more in return?
Only after honestly answering these questions should you factor in costs. The true value should be much clearer. Take a few minutes to look at our
testimonials page. These are comments from our customers collected by a totally independent company. They contact every single customer of ours after their job is completed and post all of the responses. You will soon recognize several recurring themes. Time and again our customers remark on the quality of our installation team and the work they do (we never get tired of hearing it). There are also many comments on the value they received. Even those who initially thought that our price was a little high in the beginning, were amazed at the quality they received and were so happy they had followed their instincts.
Our evaluation is free. It doesn't take much time. Regardless of the number of estimates you get, you will find that ours will be the standard by which you judge all the others. Then simply trust your knowledge, trust your experience and trust your instincts. You'll be glad you did.
