Replacing your vinyl siding is a large investment for your home and it’s important not only important to use high-quality siding, it’s also important that the siding company who does the installation is reputable siding company.

There are several ways to help ensure you work with a reputable siding company who will complete high-quality work. To help out we’ve outlined a few points below:

Licensed and Credentialed Siding Company

Make sure to only work with a siding company which has properly licensed. Ask any potential siding companies for information on their licenses. You can even go a step further and check with your local licensing authority to ensure they are licensed. If the company doesn’t have the required licenses that’s a sign to move on.

Inquire about the credentials the siding company and installers have as well. The more training and conferences they have attended the better.

In-House Installation Teams

Not all siding companies have in-house installation teams, some contractor out to installers. In-house installation teams tend to be more stable and contracted ones can change frequently. Our in-house siding installation teams have been with the company for many years. Many of the installers have been with us for more than a decade. 

Easy to Understand Estimates

You’ll want a company that can give a clear estimate/proposal with easy to understand terms and no wiggle room for hidden fees. If the estimate/proposal isn’t clear, ask questions. If they won’t or can’t answer them that’s a huge red flag. Make sure the paperwork includes the schedule and payment terms too.

Our estimates and proposals are easy to understand and our sales team will walk you through the whole process to ensure you understand how our replacement vinyl siding process works.

Watch Out for Lowball Prices

Siding companies are expensive, so if a price looks too good to be true, it probably is. If the budget a siding company gives is well under the other estimates you received then they may be skipping something important, like insurance. Our pricing, while competitive, does fully covers the project.


You will want to make sure that the siding company carries a comprehensive general liability insurance and worker’ compensation insurance. Sahara Window and Doors carries all applicable insurance, so you can rest assured when choosing us as your siding company.
