Question DetailsAsked on 11/14/2016

Recently got sales pitch for insulated siding and 2 doors from Peoples Products. Are they an OK company?

Peoples Products will provide insulated siding R5 and 2 insulated exterior doors installed at a cost of $35,000. The area to be covered by the siding is 2,900 square feet. Is this a reasonable cost and does the company have a good reputation? I did not like their high pressure sales technique.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

high pressure sales should be a key warning for you, check out this company on bbb and read complaint history, try to search through angies list also for reviews, just google the name and see what you find also like any thing else , get 3 estimateshttp://www.bbb.org/connecticut/Business-Reviews/home-improvements/peop

Here is a link to their Angies List page, assuming you are in CT - looks like they have 7 reviews.
https://www.angieslist.com/companylis... As NewWindowMan says - high pressure sales tactics is a red flag - also likely an indication you are dealing with a commission salesman rather than the owner or the crew boss, so what he promises may be far from what is delivered. And remember if you do sign a contract - if it is not in writing what he said should be ignored. if you felt pressured, like the employee comments at NewWindowMan's link to Ripoff Report, then I would go with my gut and bypass them, getting other bids from other well-rated contractors. One thing - be sure there is INDEPENDENT verification of the R-value of the insulation - most insulated siding products can only reach R5 if there is a foam insulation board put under it or attached to the back - about an inch to an inch and a half thick. Some claim an "equivalent" R value factoring in normal siding reduction of convective losses and radiant losses and sometimes a lot of hocus pocus - but for the R value it should actually have R5 worth of insulation on the back or under it. Assuming about $500/door (assuming economy same-size door as existing) that leaves $33,000 for 2900SF of insulated siding - about $11.38/SF - in the normal range for insulated siding but definitely somewhat to the high side of average but you are in a very expensive state too, so might be about normal for that area. Typically more in the $5-9/SF range.
