Vinyl siding dealers supply contractors and consumers with the vinyl panel materials they need to complete whole house installations as well as repairs and service work. The local dealers in the field are responsible for setting material prices, and their lead in this area helps determine what we end up paying for the installed project. If you are thinking of having your home sided you may want to consider looking at a few different vinyl siding dealers to see if there is one near you that can provide you with better prices and thus save you some money on the project overall.
This is an area of interest for DIY homeowners as well as for those of us paying a contractor to handle our vinyl siding installs. The dealers in your home region may be as competitive as any or their pricing might be out of touch with the rest of the market. As homeowners trying to save as much as we can on these projects, we need to keep an eye on this stuff and see what the dealers are getting for different brands and product lines. Perhaps this in some way can help you make choices and differentiate between some materials as well.
Going right to the vinyl siding dealers may be a great way to save some money on material for these projects. You could end up spending a lot less money on panels and corner posts and window trim pieces and shutters than you would at a big box home improvement warehouse, and odds are that as a customer of vinyl siding dealers you will also have access to far superior products than anything sold in those other stores. But there is no guarantee of these savings. In fact, there are times when consumers might end up paying more for the same material when they buy them directly from vinyl siding dealers than they would getting them from installation contractors.
There is a very simple reason for this. Many siders do such high volumes of business that the dealers give them great prices on their vinyl siding. The best contracting companies and the ones most committed to helping their customers share this savings and pass it on. So, there is also a possibility that this could be the better way to save money. The only way to know for sure is to get quotes and find out. Go to the vinyl siding dealers and get a printout of what your materials will cost you to buy, and also get that same information from your contractor. It can be quite instructive sometimes to see what happens in these cases. Oftentimes as consumers, the "little guy" in the industry, we don't get the same treatment as the companies that work with these dealers all the time. This is why it is important to figure out the best way to get your stuff together and work it out both ways.
Vinyl consumers are not completely in the dark on these things, and there is always a chance you can get your vinyl siding dealers to throw you a bone and get you the pricing you need to make this job happen. The one thing to remember as well is that there are usually multiple dealers in any geographical region, so if one is not being cooperative with you, you can always take your business elsewhere. With this being the case and with the possibility out there of either saving some money or having to keep looking, it is very important to get some quotes from local siding suppliers to see what your price is shaping up to look like.
