Growing Up & Working In A Small Community Taught Me The Importance Of Doing The Job Right The First Time…

And Treating People With
Total Respect, Courtesy, And Honesty.

I was raised in a small, rural community in southeast Kansas and graduated from the University of Kansas. The town I grew up in had 25,000 residents and one high school. I started working in this town when I was 14, and it taught me the importance of a good work ethic and respecting others—lessons I insisted on abiding by when I started Distinctive Home Exteriors.

I treat every installation as if I were doing it to my own home. I am at the job site everyday to ensure your project is done correctly the first time. And while bigger siding companies take on 40+ projects per year, I only take about 25 every year. That way I can FULLY commit to you and your siding project.

I also NEVER play dishonest pricing games or apply sales pressure. And you know what? If refusing to arm-twist and upsell costs me a couple hundred dollars here and there, so be it. My only goal—and I absolutely mean this—is to ensure your 120% satisfaction and that you get the best solution for your situation. Period. End of story.

When I worked for James Hardie directly, I realized that HardiePlank really is the absolute best solutions for homeowners looking for new siding.

When I left James Hardie to start my own company, I didn’t have to install HardiePlank—I could have chosen to install vinyl siding or stucco siding or wood siding or whatever else. But after working with HardiePlank for years, I’ve realized it truly is the best siding material for my customers. No other siding on the market—not vinyl, not stucco, not wood—has the same combination of looks, value, and durability. Believe me—I’ve removed about every siding material there is.

My experience working for James Hardie taught me that the product is only as good as the quality of the installation.

As a former James Hardie representative, some of my key responsibilities included conducting training seminars for builders, contractors, and installers. I also conducted quality audits on completed jobs in Kansas and Missouri.

My in-depth experience with Hardie siding led me to start Distinctive Home Exteriors—a company that exclusively installs James Hardie siding. I realized that installing just one great product would mean that I could deliver superior installation and a stress-free project every single time.

I’ve used the same professional crew for over 5 years—an unheard of amount of time in this industry.

Most companies are lucky to keep a crew intact for 2 years. My installers are extensively trained and experienced with James Hardie siding. I am proud of the fact that our expertise and focus on customer satisfaction has earned Distinctive Home Exteriors Preferred Remodeler status with James Hardie for the Kansas City area.

So if you’re in the market for new siding, contact us today. We can setup a convenient time for your free, no-pressure, no-obligation estimate and consultation.

Thanks for reading. I look forward to hearing from you.
