Durable, beautiful and long-lasting, we are Des Moines’ siding and storm restoration company.
From vinyl siding to smart siding, our siding contractors are knowledgeable in a wide variety of siding installations.
Having installed siding all over the Des Moines and West Des Moines areas, it is known that our siding installations withstand the test of time and endure against impacts and weather elements.
When Should You Replace Siding?
It should go without saying, but ignoring storm damage or hail damage can have extremely detrimental effects on the exterior of your home. If you notice chipping, denting or cracking to your siding, it’s a sign that outdoor weather elements have caused damage to your home and it’s due for repair. If too much cracking has occurred in one area or many areas of your current siding, this could lead to the invasion of water, eventually damaging the under layers of your home.
Additionally, if you notice bubbling or blistering to your current siding, it’s a sign your siding has been overexposed to excessive amounts of heat and should be replaced immediately. A reputable siding contractor will be able to assess the cause of the problem and prevent it from happening again.
Other signs you need new siding are:
- Holes or cracks in siding
- Melted or warped vinyl siding
- Insect damage
- Mold or mildew
- Structural damage
- Poor siding installation
What Causes Holes in Siding & Can The Siding Be Patched?
Holes in siding often indicate that insects are burrowing into your walls. Holes can also be caused by other animals, like woodpeckers. Lawnmowers and other equipment can stir up small stones that can damage siding, and hail impacts can cause holes too. Small holes or cracks in siding can be repaired with vinyl siding caulk or a siding patch kit. If siding damage is extensive or widespread, sections of siding should be removed and replaced with new siding to eliminate the risk of leaking.

Does New Siding Increase Home Value?
Replacing your home's siding before putting your house up for sale will increase your home value and curb appeal. On average, you'll see a 75% return on your investment, according to the National Association of Realtor's Report. If you're considering buying or selling a home, this is a commonly overlooked feature of the home to have inspected or replaced.
How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Piece of Siding?
The cost to repair a piece of siding depends on the type of siding and extent of damage. If you hire a contractor to repair a section of vinyl siding, it can cost around $2 - $4 per square foot, plus labor costs.
Types of Siding
The types of siding material we install include (but not limited to):
- Vinyl siding
- Hardboard siding
- Smart siding
In our experience, many homeowners prefer vinyl siding because of its durability and affordability. Insulated vinyl siding resists cold weather, making it a great choice for midwest winters. If you’re looking for long-lasting siding options, ask your siding contractor about cement fiber siding.
Picking the Color of Your Siding
Siding comes in a variety of colors. It’s important to ask yourself a couple of questions about the desired longevity of the siding, your project budget and more before deciding on a type of siding. This list of questions from Better Homes & Gardens will give you the information you need to narrow down your siding choices.
