2021 Notice: Material Prices are Surging

Demand for siding has grown over the past year. And, as a result, manufacturers are increasing materials prices. Prices have gone up 5% to 10% this year, and many parts of the country are experiencing long delivery times. If you're planning a siding project, we recommend starting as early as possible in the season, preparing for potential price fluctuations, and allowing extra time to order materials.
