Default Recommendation?: Vinyl siding install

Can anyone recommend a good vinyl siding company in Kanata to re-do the siding on my new Urbandale townhome? Seems like 1.5 years is not enough time for my builder to get its act together

What does Tarion have to say about this?

Tarion is coming to do an inspection, and the builder has said that they can't get it done in time and that they'll write me a cheque to do it myself.

I need to ensure that they're writing the cheque for the right amount...

Oh I see. I wonder if that amount also includes something extra for the trouble of having to do it yourself.

We don't have siding but I noticed some of my neighbours with wavy siding. Hopefully you can find someone that will do a good job for you.

It's a end unit townhouse. The siding has bowed at several spots on the end of the house - the front is brick and the back is siding (but that siding looks fine). It seems to me that the problem is related to a poor install - nails to close together on the siding - but I'm no expert. Thus the request for recommendations for a vinyl siding installation company.

Any recommendations?

Check out Nuden Vinyl Products.
A neighbour had their siding re-done, and I saw the Nuden truck outside of their home. They had good things to say about the siding, and so far, it looks good.
