What Brands Do You Carry?

Each brand has been carefully selected for quality and coverage and represents the best available in their respective products.

We carry:

James HardieJames Hardie is synonymous with fiber cement siding, and we’ve been with them since the beginning.

Mastic – Mastic is one of the top names in vinyl siding, with their insulated lap siding outperforming them all.

Simonton – Simonton is a premier replacement window company with many color and style options available to Utah homeowners.

Lansing – Lansing delivers high-quality vinyl replacement windows that can fit almost any budget.

GCI – Gutter Covers International invented the first leaf protection system and has continued to hone its products over the last several decades.

Everything else we fabricate ourselves because nothing on the market comes close to the quality gutters, trim, chimney covers, and custom pieces we create.

Why Is James Hardie The Best Home Siding?

When it comes to longevity, durability, and beauty, no other home siding system comes close to James Hardie. They invented fiber cement siding back in the 1980s and have been improving their product ever since.

The way the panels interlock and Hardie’s special nails mean that even hurricanes have a hard time knocking their siding off a home. And the fiber cement construction can stand up to sustained contact with an active fire.

Every aspect of their installation is laid out in a massive 130-page installation guide which our installers follow to the letter.

When you install James Hardie, you’ll never have to worry about your siding again.

Are Your Installers Truly The Best?

We train our installers, whether newbies or veterans, from the ground up to do things our way, the right way.

Newbies learn new skills while the veterans learn to let go of the bad habits they learned from our competitors. The result is an installation department chock full of experts.

One mistake that many home contractors make is failing to specialize their installation crews. We know better, and you will never see our gutter guys installing windows or our siding guys putting up gutters.

That doesn’t mean that each crew doesn’t understand what the other crews need to do their job successfully. We take the time each month to do a little cross training so that each crew is aware of what can become a problem for the next.

That way, a situation that would cause problems for the next crew can get spotted and solved before the current crew unwittingly covers it up.

Such intimate knowledge of the entire project results in unparalleled excellence in everything we do.

That’s why we are confident enough to provide each homeowner with our 10-Year Everything Guarantee. If anything we did causes a problem within the first decade, we will make it right at no cost to you.

Why Do You Have A Metal Fabrication Shop?

When you are finicky as we are about the products we sell, sometimes you can’t find anything worth selling. That’s what happened to us with the soffit & fascia available on the open market.

Everything we could buy was simply too flimsy and wouldn’t hold up to our high standards. So we decided to build them ourselves.

From there, it was a natural progression into custom metalwork to add some flare to our customers’ homes.

It was because of this proven success, that when James Hardie had trouble with their product offering with trim, they came to us to solve it for them.

We created an approved metal trim system to help supplement their supply chain problems. We now manufacture products for RGS customers, as well as provide systems directly to James Hardie distributors for their customers.

Why Should I Care About Leaf Protection?

Your gutters serve an important function for your home. Without their ability to gather rainwater from your roof and direct it away from your home, your roof, siding, and foundation would eventually fall apart.

So, when your gutters are clogged with debris, they can’t do their job. And when they can’t do their job, the rest of your home can suffer.

Yet, cleaning your gutters is the most overlooked chore on any Wasatch Front home.

Why?

Because it’s a dangerous job and one of the leading causes of ladder-related deaths in this country. So, the best answer is not to have to do it at all.

Leaf protection systems keep that debris from entering your gutters while allowing rainwater to flow freely into their troughs and rapidly away from your vulnerable roof, siding, and foundation.

And best of all, the systems we install are structural systems. That means that they can handle up to ten times the load of your gutters alone. And with all the snow we see here in Utah, that can make the difference that allows your gutters to survive the next winter.

Are Your Consultations Free?

All of our consultations are free of charge AND free of pressure. When the consultation is over, you will know exactly what is wrong with your home and how to get it fixed.

Our most important goal in every consultation is to empower our customers with the knowledge necessary to identify a good contractor vs a bad one.

No more guessing and worrying about making a mistake. We make you a mini expert at the most nerve-wracking part of construction projects: WHO TO HIRE!

At no time will we pressure you to decide before we depart. We leave those kinds of games to our competitors.

We give you time to make an informed decision with a quote that is good for 30 days.

What Happens On Your First Visit?

When our consultant arrives at your home, they know that their job is to listen first and ask questions second.

Their main task is to understand your goals, inspect the problem to ensure that the proposed project will solve your problem, and explain the best way to make it happen.

They will then create a proposal with a fair quote that is good for 30 days, so you won’t feel pressured to make such a big decision on the spot.

Do You Offer Financing?

We work with financial partners that specialize in home improvement loans. They have multiple options to fit the budget of any qualified homeowner’s budget.

Once approved, you can choose from any of the following:

  • 6, 12, 18-month zero-interest loans
  • Up to 7-year low-interest loans

The process is stress-free and quickly completed with a minimum of paperwork.
