Typically 2 to 3 weeks after the contract is signed.
Siding: Typically 7 to 10 days. Depends on the amount and type of siding, layout of the home, and the weather.

Doors: Typically 1 day. Depends on how many.
Siding: It is not necessary while the work is being performed. It is a good idea to be there the day work begins, so if there are any questions they can be addressed.
Windows and Doors: Yes it is preferred because we will need access inside the home.
No. We work the home in sections trying to take off only what we can replace in a day

The siding is designed to take the brunt of the water. The moisture barrier in conjunction with flashing and window tape keep the water from getting into the wall cavity.
No, Siding systems are designed to shed the water down the walls. It will not stop rising water from major or localized flooding.
Whenever there is heavy construction it is good practice to park as far from the work being preformed as possible. Our crews pick up and clean up every day to keep your home site as neat as possible. They do a nail sweep with magnets around the areas they have been working and they sweep the driveway and other walkways.
We schedule our crews so they are on only 1 home at a time.
Yes, Most of it is negligible and requires only minor repairs. About 30% of the time we find water, insect damage, or structural defects which require additional work.
If it is minor damage, (which is found in most homes), yes. If we get into a large area of damage or defects there may be an additional cost.
Full day on Saturday but if needed on Sunday.
It is not part of the base price but a salesman can include it in the price.
Yes if the temperature is above 30 degrees. When raining if it is only a light rain or mist and is on a protected area of the home.
When siding is saturated it should not be installed until it has a chance to dry.
When we arrive we start preparing the siding for paint. As we caulk we wipe or clean so the caulk can adhere to the siding. Before we paint we will either wipe down the siding or rinse so the paint will adhere to the siding. If we use water to clean it will only take about an hour on average to dry for painting.
If it is something light weight like a temperature sensor simply use a coarse screw. If it is something with some weight, like a hose reel, it will need to be attached to the framing behind the siding. Molly bolt types are not preferred.
Yes Double paned windows are a requirement for new or replacement windows.
They will help reduce outside sounds. But have no affect on some lower frequencies.
They remove all of the glass from the window then they collapse the frame in on itself.
Because most homes have flower beds right up next to the home we cannot avoid them. So we try to cover, protect, or pull back out of the way as best we can. No matter how careful we are we have to get into the flower beds to work and some damage may occur.
Our standard labor warranty is 5 years.
Yes any of the exterior walls that have pictures or shelves; you may want to remove these because we will vibrate the walls. Even if you have something that is not on an outside wall but you are concerned about it I would remove it.
If it is pre primed, no.
