I Install ONLY James Hardie Because
It’s The ONLY Siding That Can Meet
My Impossibly High Standards.

I Have a Serious Case of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder When it Comes to Installing Siding. Let Me Explain.

Five More Reasons
Distinctive Home
Is the
#1 Siding Company
In Kansas City

Low Overhead = YOU Save:
I keep my operation lean with no waste and no frills—and pass the savings on to YOU. I’m not the cheapest, but you get a superior-quality remodel at an absolute steal of a price.

Deal Directly With The Owner:
I’m personally on the jobsite everyday and have my hand in EVERY part of your project to ensure your project is done right.

Open Line Of Communication:
Some remodelers take as long as 24 hours to respond to your call. Call me anytime Monday-Friday between 8am and 5pm—if I miss your call, I will get back to you within a few minutes.

The Best-Reviewed Siding Company:
5-star Guild Quality rating. “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau. “A” rating on Angie’s List. And much more.

I Am On The Jobsite Every Single Day And Take On Only One Project At A Time To Ensure Immaculate Installation.

I Flat-Out REFUSE To Apply One
Ounce Of Sales Pressure.

I’m A James Hardie Installer—
NOT A Salesman.

I have a serious case of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder when it comes to installing siding. Let me explain.

Do you know how big the James Hardie installation manual is? 128 pages.

Do you know how much of it I adhere to? EVERY. SINGLE. WORD.

As a former James Hardie representative, I used to teach other contractors how to install James Hardie Siding. I know everything about the product. And my crew is just as knowledgeable—they’re all trained James Hardie installers whom I’ve worked with for over 5 years. (Most companies are lucky to keep a crew for 2 years.)

I’m one of just a handful James Hardie Preferred Remodelers in the Kansas City area. That’s why less than 1% of the jobs I’ve done in the past 14 years have required a callback. After I complete the job, I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. Nothing personal. But I do everything in my power to ensure your siding project is perfect the first time around and that you’re satisfied 5, 10, and 30 years to come.

As for sales pressure? Forget it. I did a bit of sales when I worked for James Hardie directly. HATED it. My “sales meetings” (if you can call them that) consist of helping you make the right decision regarding your situation and budget. I am completely honest, I flat-out REFUSE to nickel-and-dime you, and I answer any and all questions you have. Honestly, I’d rather pass on a project than pressure you to buy something you don’t want or need.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of James Hardie siding, and whether you and I might be a good fit for your project, give me a call today. I will personally come to your home to perform a free inspection and consultation. I would be honored for the opportunity to meet you in person.
