How To Choose Siding

How To Make Choosing Replacement Siding Easy

With Us, SE Michigan & Detroit Homeowners Can Select The Siding Material That Best Meets Their Needs

Shopping for siding can sometimes feel overwhelming. 

And the truth is most SE Michigan & Metro Detroit siding companies don’t help.

That’s because many of them choose to only install one kind of siding material. They’ll hype that choice – even if it doesn’t match your needs and budget – because it’s all they have to sell.

We do it differently. We have a full selection of siding materials and accent and trim options. 

That means instead of pushing one particular product and material, we can objectively share with you the pros and cons of different types of siding. And we can recommend what we truly believe is best for you based on your goals for your siding project.

Four Questions To Ask Any SE Michigan Siding Company Before Hiring Them

This is actually fairly easy to figure out. If the company is only offering one siding material, then they are going to be forced to try to convince you it’s the only right choice for you. 

If you want a premium siding (like James Hardie), and they only have vinyl siding options, you’re out of luck.

Same goes the other way: if you’d prefer a lower priced option and they only have premium priced products, you won’t hear about other options.

With Performance Remodeling, we will truly educate you on your options and give you our best professional recommendation – all tailored to your specific situation.

At Performance Remodeling, we only recommend siding products from PROVEN manufacturers. 

One of the main reasons we do this is because we MUST install best-quality siding products because we give a Lifetime Guarantee on every siding project. With a guarantee like that, we can only install products we know and trust. 

That’s why we do business with companies like:

  • James Hardie – Widely known and respected as the premium name in siding in the U.S.
  • PlyGem – The #1 vinyl siding company in America
  • CertainTeed – a manufacturer with a track record going back more than a century!

When it comes to who will actually install your siding, it’s a good idea to get real facts. Things to look for:

  • Elite certifications from top manufacturers. 
  • Will they put an ugly-looking dumpster in front of your house during the project? (We have a better solution).
  • Do they have experienced installers that are true experts on siding, or do they have temporary laborers who jump from job to job?


Performance Remodeling has earned the highest certifications from several top siding manufacturers, including Elite Preferred Contractor status from James Hardie and Elite Vinyl Siding Installer status from PlyGem.

We also have daily clean-up of the job site and have built a high-quality installation team. To discover more about this, please visit our Siding Installation page.
