Exterior Remodeling Prices

Transparent & honest pricing policies

We openly talk about our prices. Here's why

You can easily find the cheapest contractor. What you won’t get is a high-quality, professional exterior remodeling project. Our services are designed to provide only top-quality work. Doing so takes skill, learned over years of hands-on experience, using high-quality materials, and a great deal of time.

Good siding installers -- especially ones with experience with James Hardie fiber cement installation -- are not easy to find either. And they are not cheap. We pay our crew a higher salary that allows them to live worry-free, so they can be their best at their job.

Our “higher” quotes aren’t high. They’re just honest and transparent. Many contractors will give you a low price to get the job, and hit you with change orders and surprise costs when you least expect it. Our unique process allows us to be extremely thorough with both determining your needs and expectations and ensuring that they are achieved.

Not cutting corners also means we’re bringing the right skills and labor for the job. This allows us to finish on schedule (weather permitting!).

Lastly, we stand behind our work. That's why more than 85% of our customers are referrals. This shows that our work and commitment truly speaks for itself, and is rewarded by referrals from our past customers.

Our Process

Step 1: Get in touch

When you've decided it's time to give your home the exterior upgrade it deserves, get in touch with us.  After more than 15 years in business, we understand the connection you have with your home more than anyone.  That's why we're committed to open and honest communication.  Fill out our contact form.

Step 2: Phone consultation

The first step is to send us a few pictures of the space/project you’d like to
upgrade or remodel. We’ll have a phone call to discuss the details and
schedule an on-site consultation.

Step 3: On-site consultation

We'll come to your house, walk around, take measurements, and complete a
thorough inspection. We'll also listen to your goals and vision for your remodel
job. During this visit, we can also take photos so we can create a 3D rendering of
your project if you like.

Step 4: Confirmation of project plan

At this step, you'll be able to review detailed estimated and 3D drawings complete with all the features we discussed. Your project plan will include the necessary materials and the timeline for your project. 

We'll also review your communication preferences -- phone or email? 

Step 5: Installation

We're as excited as you are to begin your project.  You can expect our crews to arrive between 8 and 9 am each morning.  We take pride in respecting your property and cleaning the area at the end of each workday.  To help in this effort, we ask that your property be clear of any unnecessary items as we work. 

Step 6:  Coping with mother nature

We’re always ready when Mother Nature plans a rainy visit. During such delays, your home is completely protected from any wet weather. As soon as the rain stops, our crew is back on the job. We appreciate your understanding and patience during any weather-related delays.

Step 7: Final Walkthrough

We’re only satisfied with our work when you are. So, at the end of every project, we ask you to take a final walk-through with our crew leader to make certain everything is done to your liking. When we get your OK, we clean up the property leaving only your beautifully remodeled exterior showing. As always, we appreciate any and all referrals.

Here's what customers say...

The high-level craftsmanship and personalized customer experience we deliver are what keep our customers happy and telling their friends about us. We can't wait to help you with your remodeling project. 

Mark and his team did a terrific job and I could not be more pleased with the final work! Throughout whole siding installation process I was kept well informed about the progress and what will be next steps in the process. I'm living in Arlington Heights and anyone who is looking for great siding contractor can stop by my house and check their amazing work. I also plan on hiring them again for another siding project. That would be my parent's home. 🙂

I researched over 30 companies, and had 5 come out to my house to give me estimates to install new vinyl siding. I ended up going with Smardbuild, and I am very happy that I did. They showed up on time, and finished the entire job within a week. And the quality of the work is the best part. They are perfectionists! I have never seen attention to detail like this. They even went above and beyond the job requirements. They installed aluminum flashing around my sliding glass door to make it look nicer, and that was not even part of the job. And to top it off, they installed 2 new wall lanterns that I bought at Home Depot.

We used Mark and his Smardbuild team to replace our roof, soffits, fascia, siding, upstairs windows, gutters and front door. All work performed is top notch. We went with Hardie soffits and fascia since we had prior issues with carpenter bees drilling holes in our old, wooden soffits. In my opinion Smardbuild is the best with Hardie products. Everything looks great. It took us a while to finally settle on a color for the siding and Smardbuild was quite patient with our process. After having issues with contractors in the past, it was refreshing to work with such a professional team that actually cares about the quality of their work. Thanks Smardbuild.
