Common Questions Regarding Our Minneapolis Siding Company

Window Outfitters, Inc., a licensed MN exterior home improvement contractor, is a respected, Minneapolis area business based in Savage, but we serve the entire Twin Cities metro area. We have proudly assisted many homeowners in protecting and improving their homes in the past 18 years. Established in 1997, our company strives to maintain open communication with our valued customers. In addition to installing replacement windows, our specialty is professional installation of fiber cement siding from The James Hardie Company. While we discuss many questions and answers with our customers, there are always a few that go unasked.

Generally, what are the price differences between vinyl siding and fiber cement siding?
Window Outfitter’s high quality fiber cement siding could be priced between 0% and 40% greater than another material. Composite siding, or foam-backed insulated vinyl may run about the same in cost of material; low end vinyl is probably the cheapest. This is due to the fact that quality and manufacturing costs play a big factor in the price differentials.

Does your siding’s heavy weight interfere with my home’s wall framing structure?
While James Hardie siding is definitely durable by design, its weight rings in at about 300 lbs per square. Vinyl siding weighs in at much less, averaging about 25% of fiber cement’s weight. (If quality vinyl siding is your preference, we also install Crane insulated vinyl siding.) Our MN siding installation company has successfully completed thousands of vinyl and fiber cement siding jobs. No customers have ever experienced damage to their homes in the process of our installations. We strive to maintain our clients’ happiness.

What kind of guarantee do you offer?
Window Outfitters prides themselves in assuring that clients are satisfied with their installations. We are happy to include an impressive offer. Our services come complete with a 5-year warranty in addition to the manufacturer’s warranty.   (Whatever product we sell comes with a written manufacturer’s warranty, and we add our workmanship warranty on top of that.) We strive to assure customers that our work meets your needs. Paying attention to the smallest of details, our crews do top of the line installations. Our company isn’t happy unless you are satisfied with our work!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us here at Window Outfitters. We take pride in the service that we provide to each and every client who comes to us. We are more than happy to get you that fiber cement siding you’re in need of for the life of your home.
