A New Season for Local Siding Contractors Aloha Construction: 20,000 Local Roofing Jobs Completed

Being such fast growing roofers and local siding contractors has come with some serious ups and downs. We’ve had our successes and made our mistakes. We’ve learned from those mistakes while also taking each moment of success as a sign to also continue to develop. In Spring 2013, when discussing the future during a news release, we were just excited to have completed 7,000 roofing & siding jobs in the state of Illinois. In Spring 2015, our owner, Dave Farbaky, said “The plan is to immensely expand our Bloomington office in such a way that it can compete with our headquarters in Lake Zurich. This will allow us to service the entire state of Illinois with relative ease…We want to keep expanding and evolving to service, and make life easier for the folks of Illinois.”

Since then? We believe we’ve accomplished those goals in more. For starters, this year we can proudly say that we’ve completed over 20,000 roofing and siding jobs in the state of Illinois!! Thanks to the hard work of our Bloomington office we were able to accomplish our service area dreams outlined by Dave 2 years ago.

This year? We’ve continued to try and push Dave’s promise of evolving service to make life easier for the folks of Illinois. We redeveloped our website to give homeowners the roofing and siding help they need in less clicks. We became roofers who finance so you can have options when an insurance adjuster is playing hardball. We even went out to sponsor the local sports teams you found important (our beloved Bloomington Thunder, the Normal Cornbelters, and the Kane County Cougars). All of this only happening in the 1st quarter of the new year!

This roofing season? We have so many surprises planned. From innovative multi-media video usage/commercials to the reinvention of Aloha Restoration, Co; our stand-alone water extraction, fire damage restoration, and clean-up company which will be re-launched to the public at the end of this month! So many things in store and we appreciate all of you who continue to support and stay in-tuned.

Without you, our continued success in the Midwest wouldn’t be possible!

Hire a local siding contractor or Do-IT-Yourself?

DIY or siding contractor?

If you have replaced old siding with new siding, then you may be both competent and confident enough to take this exterior restoration project on yourself. The Do it yourself path will most often save you money, but it can take longer to complete and there’s no guarantee your craftmanship will last. For instance, we offer a 10 year warranty. Also, this will take much longer than a weekend. Local siding contractors working full time can take only half the time to side a home depending on the size and the weather conditions. If an expert takes weeks to finish siding a home, your do-it-yourself siding project will most likely exceed that amount.

If you have had little to no experience putting vinyl siding on homes, leave it up to trusted local siding contractors. Siding installation may look relatively easy, but this is not for beginners. Working around corners, eaves, soffits and fascia, along with trimming openings like windows, screens, and doors; are all technical aspects of the project that can be easy to get wrong. If you choose to replace the siding yourself, you need to know the extent of the storm damage to figure out whether to repair or completely remove old siding.

Some other factors to consider: You need to know how to spot, repair, and replace where mold, water, or vermin have damaged it. Do you know how to attach frieze board and sheathing? Which method lends itself to the type of siding (alumnimum, vinyl, etc.) you selected. You must have the skill and tools to cut the siding planks to fit. When it comes to siding, it will benefit both you and your home to hire a professional.

Replacing siding can make your home a lot more attractive, giving it a look that adds character and curb appeal. It can also make your home more energy efficient by keeping heat in and saving on utility bills  Siding replacement has consistently been one of the best home improvement projects for adding value to your home and is one of the few projects that can show a direct return on your investment.

Know what you’re getting yourself into before you begin to DIY your siding project…
