Recommendations on Room Darkening Shades & Home Siding Contractors

I have noticed with the recent time change (springing forward) that my daughter sleeps in almost an hour more each morning and the only thing I can contribute this too is that it's darker in her room now. I would love to keep this trend going so I'm looking for advice on good room darkening shades that have worked for others. We have basic room darkening blinds now that we purchased from Target years ago but they don't do the trick and allow a lot of light to come thru on either sides of the blinds.
Second request is for recommendations on good contractors for home siding. We are thinking of maybe siding our house in the spring and don't know where to even begin for quotes. Any advice (good or bad experiences) would be wonderful!

What can I do next?

It depends on your location, and what you need done to your house. My husband is a siding contractor and he does a great job - I'm not saying that because he is my hubby, my parents had some storm damage and my husband fixed it up and it looks amazing better than it did before the storm hit.

I'd recommend Highpoint Remodelers in Ham Lake. We had an addition put on last year, and as part of that they redid the siding on our whole house (as part of a storm damage settlement). They did a great job--even building little "frames" for the satellite dish, dog run, and lights, so they were sturdier and wouldn't wreck the siding if they needed to be changed out.

I purchased room darkening curtains and roman shades from IKEA and love them. They have a great selection and reasonable prices. The curtains also keep the cold out in the winter and the summer heat out. Check out Ikea.

Brandon was involved in the process the entire time and did a great job communicating with all of the homeowners from the estimate to the final inspection. Anything that they needed, he provided. The houses look great :)
