Jamie Roberts has spent his entire life in the construction industry. He started out working in the family business of building custom homes, and has been involved in every aspect of home construction. It is this in depth knowledge of home construction that gives him an advantage over most contractors that just have knowledge of one part of your house. After graduating college with a degree in finance Jamie worked for several of the top manufacturers of building products including Certainteed Corporation and James Hardie Building Products.Working for these manufacturers has given Jamie a perspective on how products are developed and tested, as well as a thorough understanding of the proper installation requirements to meet warranty.
While working for James Hardie Siding and being exposed to product failures of Masonite siding, colorLok, wood based trim and wood windows it became very apparent that there are a lot of product failures due not only to poor manufacturing but also to improper installation. This is when the light when off: Homeowners don’t want exterior products that need continued maintenance and repairs. Jamie started Siding Express because he saw a big need in the St. Louis market for a siding and exteriors company that focused on and specialized in products like James Hardie Siding and other maintenance free exteriors options.
Jamie is passionate about the siding industry, and spends a lot of his time researching the latest information and products, and developing processes and solutions to find and deliver the best products and do the best installation for his customers.
