If you have a siding installation project in the near future, you’re probably looking for ways to save on the project. Some homeowners think that taking the entire project on, on their own will pay off in the long run by saving on installation costs, but experts say that hiring a contractor is actually a better investment. Why is this the case? Read on to find out.
The biggest advantage of hiring a contractor is that you will end up having better built siding. Fasteners are properly secured, lapboards are properly levelled, and paint job is more consistent (if required at all). This is because contractors have already spent a lot of time training to ensure siding is installed according to manufacturer specifications.
Better Product Quality
If you as a homeowner try to acquire the materials on your own, there’s a chance that you will end up picking the wrong siding. Siding contractors already know which products work best given your area’s local climate and building codes. This ensures that your siding will be tough and efficient enough to keep your home protected and insulated.
Faster Work Times
Remember that until the siding is completely installed, your home’s structural walls are vulnerable to the elements. By hiring siding contractors, you’ll have a team of people who already know the most efficient approach to the project. The siding is put up sooner rather than later, and your house spends less time exposed to rain, wind and sun.
You Are Covered by Warranties
If a DIY siding installation ends up causing problems later on, you will have no choice but to spend more money trying to fix or even redo the entire project. By hiring siding contractors, you get to have your siding protected by product or service warranties that will potentially save you thousands of dollars worth of siding repair and replacement costs.
