More Siding FAQs

As Bordner mentioned in our post last week, we often get many questions about siding and so we wanted to take some time to answer a few of the most frequently asked ones from our readers. Last week’s post discussed things like the effects that proper siding can have on utility bills, what the energy Star Program is and the comprehensive lifespan of siding. This week, well touch on a few others to help make the process of both shopping for siding and knowing what questions to ask your contractor, just a little bit easier.

From Bordner:

Is it customary for all siding service providers to replace areas of rotted wood before installing new siding?

No, not all siding installers replace the rotted wood. However, at Bordner, we replace all the rotted wood before we install your siding. The price you receive from us includes replacement of all visible wood rot. Sometimes wood rot and other siding problems are hidden and is not discovered until the old siding is removed. We always maintain open communication with our homeowners and never cover up existing wood rot.

Is there a siding option available that’s more maintenance-free than wood siding?

To achieve the look of wood, without the maintenance, you should consider fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding is available in a wide variety of finishes, colors and textures, won’t rot, is impervious to wood-boring insects, and resists the aging effects of UV rays.

What’s the average cost for siding repair or replacement?

The best way to determine the cost of repairing or replacing your siding is to call Bordner at (816) 358-2102 or contact us online for a no-obligation analysis and estimate. When you contact us, one of Bordner’s highly trained home improvement consultants will schedule a time to inspect your siding, discuss repair and replacement options, and provide you an estimate.
