Save Time Using Factory Finished Siding and Trim

As a contractor, finding experienced, qualified workers today is still a challenge due to the economic downturn. We’ve written about it, as have other industry news resources. Yet the question remains, how can contractors keep up with a rising workload while utilizing a smaller crew to complete a project at or above expectations, in a timely manner?

In a previous blog post, we wrote about the use of engineered wood products and how they save time, money and waste on a project. Today’s savings tip is  about the use of Factory Finished siding and trim. Russin Factory Finishing has teamed up with Benjamin Moore to offer products that will save time at the jobsite because they will arrive finished and ready to install.

Each substrate undergoes a precise process to apply the coating, then inspection for quality control to ensure top quality products

The application of coatings on every substrate is followed through with careful precision and inspection to ensure the highest quality and protection on every side of each piece. Benjamin Moore paints and stains are renowned for their superior quality and lasting duration.

By choosing to use Factory Finished products on siding and trim, this will give you the ability to offer your clients a product that will not only look great, but will be better protected and last longer than if you were to install these items unfinished, then stain and seal them after installation.

If you don’t usually offer painting services, this will be a new service you can offer, with no additional labor costs.
