View Our Step By Step Siding Installation Process
Materials Delivered to your home
Step one of the process is the delivery of the materials to the customer’s home. All materials are carefully packaged & wrapped to avoid any damage to your siding during shipping & delivery.
Existing Siding Is removed
Preparation is so important. So many companies will simply cover up problems and do not address them. We will first remove your old siding, inspect your home and cut out any rotten or damaged wood and replace it with solid wood.
House is prepped for new siding
As part of a PJF installation, your entire home is covered with Tyvek. Why do we wrap your home with Tyvek? It is like putting a windbreaker over a sweater on a cold windy day!
Inside and outside corners are flashed
VSI certified installation standards require flashing in critical areas where water infiltration is most likely to occur. Outside corners, inside corners, and sill areas. The trademarks of a PJF siding installation are the details that cannot be seen. Managing water behind the siding gives you unquestionable protection.
Clean, Hand-Crafted “J” channels
Attention to detail is a Fitzpatrick tradition. Most companies don’t take the time to miter cut the corner trim J channels. Small details like these miter cuts make a beautiful difference to your new siding job.
Quality starter strip installation
A beautiful siding job must start with a rock solid foundation. And our starter strip insures your project will get off on the right foot. If something is not right when it goes in, its never going to get better. You will never see the starter strip used on your siding job, but it is one of the most critical components of a job that will last a lifetime.
Our Patented STUDfinder system
Homes built without a solid sub-sheathing do not provide a strong enough substrate to hold nails. Our stud finder system of installation withstands gale force winds up to 185mph.
