Our Process

Step 1: Get in touch

If you’re ready to start your exterior remodeling journey, we’re ready to take your call! We can’t wait to talk to you about your project and audition for your business. Fill out our contact form.

Step 2: Phone consultation

Send us a few photos of your home to have an informed first conversation about your future project. We’ll discuss the details and schedule an in-person site visit if you’re ready to take the next step.

Step 3: On-site consultation

We walk through the property together, take measurements and discuss your project while assessing for special circumstances that we will need to consider when planning your project. If you are interested in a 3D rendering of your project, we will take photographs to start this process. We recommend a 3D rendering. It’s easy to communicate details when we can all easily visualize the project.

Step 4: Confirmation of project plan

At this step, you'll be able to review detailed estimates and 3D drawings complete with all the features we discussed during our visit. Our detailed and thorough process sets us apart. Your project plan will include a breakdown of the necessary materials and the timeline for your project. 

We'll also review your communication preferences -- phone or email?  We want to be sure to connect with you as efficiently as possible.

Step 5: Installation

It’s time to make it real! You can expect our crews to arrive between 8 and 9 am each morning. We take pride in treating your property with respect and cleaning the area at the end of each workday. We ask that you set us up for success by clearing where we plan to work.

Step 6: Dealing with mother nature

We are working outside. Our crews will be right back as soon as the weather clears, but we can’t do the quality we want to leave behind if we’re fighting the elements. We expect these days and plan for them as we schedule your project. Thank you for your patience during these weather delays.

Step 7: Final walk-through

The project isn’t over until you’re happy with it. We do our final walk-through together to ensure that everything meets your approval. When you give us the okay, we pack up and leave you to enjoy your gleaming new exterior.

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.
