My house had original aluminum siding from 1983, and I decided that it was time for improvements. I looked at 3 options: 1) repair/paint existing siding, 2) replace with vinyl siding, or 3) replace with Hardie plank. Obviously, repairing would have been the least expensive and Hardie plank the most expensive (at least so I thought). I procured seven estimates from different contractors on the various approaches with most providing an estimate on both vinyl and Hardie plank. In the end, I went with Able Construction and Hardie plank. Hardie plank installation does tend to be higher priced than vinyl but not exorbitantly. I found that there was quite a variation in the vinyl pricing based on quality of materials; some was priced even higher than the Hardie plank. The quote by Able Construction on Hardie plank was not the lowest estimate I received or the highest. It was in the middle. So why did I choose Able Construction? First, they absolutely sounded the most knowledgeable about the installation process. Second, their estimate was very thorough so there appeared to be little room for unforeseen charges. In my case, there was so rotten wood uncovered that needed replacing (costs $120), but I was told upfront that could be a possibly (and I saw the rotted wood prior to replacement). Most other estimates were vague and failed to address issues that Able Construction brought up during the “walk around” of my house during the estimation process. Also, note that there is a “James Hardie Contractor Alliance™ program that is designed to match homeowners with professional contractors who meet the highest quality of customer satisfaction and are trained on James Hardie installation best practices”, and Able Construction is one of those contractors (zip code 20708 in search). Finally, why did I choose Hardie plank over vinyl given mostly more expensive? First, I’ve had it before and believe it is a better material. Second, you can paint it at a later point in time if you want to change colors which is important to my wife (painting not necessary initially since it comes pre-painted). In the end, the finished product looks great, and I highly recommend Able Construction.

Able Construction Services were great to work with. They worked around my schedule and worked the job nonstop from beginning to end. I wanted to get new construction Andersen windows instead of the vinyl replacements that everyone is trying to sell you. I also wanted to replace the aluminum siding on my house with Hardie siding. Able Construction did everything I asked and the price seemed reasonable.
