The #1 Thing You Must Know About Siding Replacements

If you consider a siding replacement, the number one thing you need to know is that replacements are not as simple as you might think. You can likely manage minor repairs on your own, but it is unrealistic to turn a complete home siding replacement into a DIY project.

Many homeowners get in over their heads when they decide to revamp their home exterior without prior experience or professional guidance. It can be easy to get ahead of yourself, especially with the prospect of a beautiful home exterior on the horizon.

However, if you need a siding replacement, working with a professional is an absolute ‘must.’ Read on to learn more about why we recommend teaming up with an experienced crew for your siding replacement.

Why You Need a Professional Siding Contractor

While you may luck out and know a family member or friend with some experience with siding replacements, most of us aren’t so lucky. Hiring a professional team is almost always necessary, especially if you are doing a complete overhaul of your home siding. A minor repair is manageable with a friend with experience, but it is always best to work with a crew for larger projects.

Our siding replacement contractors in Albany are insured, experienced, and able to assess a range of siding problems and recommend appropriate repairs. Going with an amateur contractor may leave you with a mess on your hands, requiring you to eventually hire a professional crew anyway. It is best to work with a team you know you can trust right from the start.

Ultimately, you’ll save yourself time, money, and a lot of stress and heartache by choosing an upstanding contractor. Before you get excited and begin tearing down your old siding, connect with a professional that has experience with home siding replacements. You’ll thank yourself (and us) later.

Siding Replacement Options

Now that we’ve gotten that important message out of the way, let’s discuss your options. Color, brand, durability, maintenance, and style should all factor into your final decision. Your siding, after all, is the wrapping of your home. Its appeal (or lack of) can make or break first impressions.

Not only that, but your home siding completely transforms your house, making you feel right at home — or not. Let’s jump into the main considerations you will want to discuss with your siding contractor to ensure your final result exceeds your expectations.


The style of your siding will likely be your first consideration. Do you want a traditional colonial look? What about modern, sleek siding?

There are all different textures, designs, and styles to consider. Working with a professional contractor will give you the chance to consider the pros and cons of multiple siding styles.


At Top Form Contracting, James Hardie Siding is our preferred siding brand. Time and again, their siding increases curb appeal and home efficiency, thanks to their innovative materials and technology. It is easy to choose a James Hardie Siding that fits your preferences since they produce a variety of different siding styles.


Different siding styles and textures will require more or less upkeep. If you prefer minimal maintenance, there are plenty of options to choose from. If maintenance is an important factor in your decision making, get in touch with one of our experts for low maintenance, durable siding recommendations that will complement your home and lifestyle.


Last but not least, and arguably the most fun part, is picking the color. Color selection is something homeowners look forward to the most. Whether you want to get ultra creative and add bright blue vinyl siding or stick with a timeless earth tone, the possibilities (as cliche it sounds) are endless.

How Much Will My Home Siding Replacement Cost?

So, how much will your siding replacement cost you? The total dollar amount may be your number one concern when it comes to your siding replacement. When you choose to upgrade your home’s exterior, always look at it as an investment. The ROI you gain from making periodic upgrades can dramatically pay you back in the long run.

The exact cost of your siding replacement will depend on the size of your home, the number of materials needed to get the job done, as well as the brand and style of siding you select.
