Question DetailsAsked on 7/17/2014

Had siding put on home. The siding has many visible blemishes.

Does the contractor or manufacturer make this right for me?

Unless it was blemished coming out of the box (in which case it should have been returned right off), most likely installer workmanship failure, or if vinyl/aluminum may have nailed to tight so it could not expand so it buckled and crinkled. Either way, the installer is the one your contract is with, so his responsibility to make it right - if it is due to manufacturer defect, then that is between him and the manufacturer - you paid for a workmanlike finished product which you evidently did not get.

If materials is defective, manufacturer should replace it, BUT will generally NOT pay for the labor. In this case, installer should not have put it up (should have noticed blemishes right off), so to get it replaced without paying for labor, you need to be dealing with the installer to make the whole job right.

On the other hand, if you provided the siding thinking you would save money - guess what, you didn't. Manufacturer should replace if these were factory blemishes, but you will probably have to pay for the replacement labor.
