Siding installation (vinyl, wood & aluminum)

Hi All! My name is Anna and I just joined the forum, Iím also a new comer to siding installation (vinyl, wood & aluminum). Iím still trying to understand it all and our little company (just me and my son) is still navigating through all the different ways to approach the industry. Itís a tough economy! I was wondering Ė for those of you involved in the industry (especially veterans) business owner or not, what are some of services, tools, strategies, or latest resources you find helpful or profitable in doing your work or - business? Online or offline, Iím sure there is quite a lot in both right?! Thanks and God bless!

I hate to be blunt, but it sounds to me like you're inexperienced and over your head. Take some business courses and go work for someone in the business. There are already too many cowboys in the business undercutting the pros

Go work full time for a busy siding company for 3-5 years, and then you’ll only know enough to be dangerous. I can appreciate the research you’re attempting but there are no shortcuts.
