Share your ideas, questions, and designs
Meet the owner, Joseph Ketner, and tell him your ideas for the project. Share questions or concerns you have. Let him know your expectations, discuss a reasonable plan together, and he will guide you through the process. You’ll meet with our design pro and go over any features and any historic attributes of the home.

Get on the schedule!
Go over the proposal and add details or make revisions as needed to meet your expectations. Lock in your place on the teams’ schedule with a signed contract and a partial deposit. You’ll meet the team, perform a site walkaround, identify staging zones and areas of concern (landscaping for example).

Free Consultation

Our partnership begins with a comprehensive consultation and evaluation of your exterior home renovation needs, covering every detail. We’ll discuss your reasons for residing, set clear expectations, go over safety issues (lead, asbestos), and check for improper installation of your siding, windows, gutters, etc. If you have a historic home renovation project, we’ll make sure work meets codes, covenants and restrictions and guide you through obtaining permits if needed. We are Licensed in Oregon and Washington States.



Design And/Or Color Consultation

Need help with siding design, combining products, historic attributes or color palates? Just a few simple features can transform you house into a Showcase Home. Meet with a professional designer and have confidence you’re making the right decision.

What To Expect

Once you’ve made the decision to replace the siding on your home–and make all of those little changes you’ve been thinking about the past few years–it’s time to dive in and find a Portland siding contractor. As with any home renovation, an exterior renovation can be both exciting and a little scary because you want to make sure you’re making good decisions.

Coming to Joseph Ketner Construction is a great start! We have more than two decades of experience and an impressive track record of providing great craftsmanship and unsurpassed customer service throughout Portland. We think you’ll appreciate our no-pressure approach at our initial meeting and our transparency throughout the process.



Clear Plan And Communication

Joseph Ketner, your project manager, and our rigorously trained installers will guide you through every design-build step, quickly address questions or concerns, and provide you with peace of mind. We’ll go over the proposal, schedule and pricing so you have clear expectations.

Throughout your home makeover, the Joseph Ketner crew will be organized and professional. Demolition is messy, but we’ll designate a safe work zone for the team and respect your home and landscape. If we encounter unforeseen problems, your project manager will promptly talk to you about solutions and the cost of needed materials and labor.


Lead-Based Paint Concerns

Detailed informational packets disclosing the risks of lead-based paint will be sent to you prior to starting. The JKC team is professionally trained and certified to safely remove lead-based paint products. Know with confidence that your family will remain safe.
