The Importance of Hiring a Reliable Siding Contractor

To some, siding installation may look and seem easy to do. A word of caution, however: it is most certainly among the home improvement projects which are not recommended for DIY. You see, there aren’t just different types of siding, but different installation methods that you need to familiarize yourself with. Moreover, to ensure that installation is done per specifications, siding manufacturers only warrant their materials against defects if their products are installed by their certified contractor partners.

When you hire a siding contractor for the installation project, you are assured that:

  • They know what they’re doing
  • They have the necessary skills, tools, and equipment to do and finish the job
  • They have sufficient safety knowledge and gear
  • They can do the job efficiently and within the set time and budget
  • They will obtain necessary permits and they know how to comply with local building codes
  • They offer full service, from preparation to cleanup
  • They provide material and labor warranties

Tips for Finding the Right Siding Contractor

To make sure that the contractor you hire is one that you can fully trust, ask them these questions:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Where is your office located?
  • Are you licensed?
  • Can you show me some samples of your work?
  • Can you provide me with a list of customer references?
  • Which types of siding do you have experience and knowledge in installing?
  • Are you certified by siding manufacturers?
  • Have you received any industry awards?
  • Are you insured?
  • What warranties or guarantees do you provide?
  • Do you do all the work or use subcontractors?
  • How do you handle customer complaints?

All these questions will help you gauge how qualified, knowledgeable, experienced, and committed your chosen contractor is. It’s important that you work with someone who is not only trained and experienced, but also dedicated towards meeting your expectations from start to finish.
