Benefits of Our Home Exterior Remodeling

When choosing a material for the exterior of your home, siding offers many benefits. Siding is a low maintenance solution for the exterior of your home and James Hardie siding has better durability than metal or vinyl siding products. Siding is available in many colors and styles to create a beautiful exterior for your home and adding siding can increase your home’s value.

Options for Siding

There are many options for siding for residential applications. At All States Home Improvement, we are happy to help our customers select the best siding for their homes. There are many colors and styles available, so you can find something that will reflect your personal tastes and fit the style of your home.

Selecting the Right Siding Contractor

The best siding in the world won’t look right if an inexperienced contractor installs it. When selecting a contractor, make sure he is licensed, insured, and knowledgeable about siding products. In addition, you want a contractor that you are comfortable talking with and is helpful in the process of selecting siding. Ask for a list of references to ensure that the contractor has a record of quality service and be sure that the contractor is approved or certified by the siding company.

Always get a written estimate from any siding contractor. The estimate should have a description of the work that will be completed, specify the materials that will be used, including product numbers and the work should be covered by a contractor’s warranty. The contractor should be responsible for the permits and the estimate should include the total price, payment schedule, and information about financing, if applicable.

Can you afford to spend more than $50,000 just to keep your home’s exterior looking good? Durable, low-maintenance James Hardie siding is an excellent option!

Our new shower is perfect, we love it! The All States crew did an amazing job: they are a master at the craft. Kept us informed every step of the way. It took just one full day to pull out our old tub & transform our shower stall. If you're considering a tub-to-shower conversion, the finished product will look just like the promotional pictures. Thank you All States!

We are pleased with the results of our exterior remodel by All States. They took the time to meet with us and get to know our vision, and how they could help us achieve that vision. In the end, we got a new roof, new windows, new siding, and new gutters. They provided great crews that worked hard and efficiently. We would recommend All States to someone looking to get home improvement projects done efficiently and well, with high quality.

All States Home Improvement completed removal and installation on 16 windows, 2 exterior doors, and a storm door in our home. They were extremely professional and detailed with discussion of the work being done from start to end; setting expectations with us and working to understand everything we wanted done so they could make sure we were satisfied. From start to finish, All States was extremely professional and customer focused.

My experience with All States was outstanding from first contact to follow up after installation. Every employee we encountered was professional and courteous. The quality of the components and installation was also first class. I would recommend them for this service without hesitation.

Our experience with All States Home Improvement was awesome! We did a tub-to-walk-in shower conversion. They came out to give us a quote and show us the many options. I appreciated their patience while we decided on exactly what we wanted to buy. Our installers were both rock stars! They showed up on time, were polite, and made sure everything was cleaned up real nice. Thanks All States!
