Advance Aluminum Supply, Inc.
About this pro
We can do all types of siding including seamess steel siding. Most other companies tend to push vinyl because it is easier to work with. We consider ourselves masters of metal craftsmanship. We also can identify siding that others can not and have sources for obsolete material that is no longer made. With 45 years owning businesses either retail or wholesale in the home improvement field, we are considered experts at what we do. We enjoy helping and consulting with homewners and contractors who need help finding products that have been hail damaged. We also like things mechanical and have been repairing and adjusting siding machines and gutter machines when others can't.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was stationed overseas with a friend from Minnesota. We were both in the electronics radio relay equipment repair field. When I got back in 1970 that field was not hiring as engineers were taking tech jobs. He had been in the siding install business with his father prior to joining the Air Force and had gone back in the install end. I was in Minnesota visiting from Pennsylvania when he called me up and said his partner didn't show up and he needed help. So I began installing siding and moved here permanently in 1970. I learned quickly and began running a crew in 6 months and training others. We expanded and went from there. In 1985 we started Advance Aluminum Supply Inc and have diversified from just siding, awnings and gutters to roofing, siding including seamless ,windows, awnings, gutters, basement remodlels. We also do siding matches, furnish material to d.i.y. and contractors, sell and service siding and gutter machines.
