When it comes to your home’s exteriors, you wouldn’t want to leave it in the hands of a subpar contractor that cuts corners when completing home improvement projects. Not only will it be a waste of your money, but it can also mean more problems for your home later on. This is why it pays to do proper research and vetting when considering a contractor for your siding project.
It won’t hurt to take your time in finding the right professional if it means your investment is well-spent for your home. Here’s what you need to look out for:
How Long They’ve Been in Business
These are very reasonable questions to ask, but you’ll likely already find out about this information online prior to meeting your potential contractors. Still, it can start the conversation in any direction you want it to go, such as asking if their office is just within the area and what type of jobs they’ve completed. It also helps in ruling out any shady contractors, though you’ll still need to inquire about a few more things first so you can be sure about them.
Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance
Your prospective contractor should have this; if not, consider going with another siding contractor instead. This will help during the renovation process; when an unfortunate accident occurs with the contractor and/or their crew on your property, their insurance would cover the bills. If you still insist on hiring your first choice, you’ll risk paying for any accident while the project is ongoing since it occurred on your property.
Experience in Siding Materials
A good contractor can discuss their experience in roofing materials with you all day. Of course, what you want to hear from them is whether they really know what the job entails and how to get it done. If you’re also diligent about researching your preferred siding materials, then it helps to understand a prospective contractor’s experience with specific siding options.
