4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Siding Contractor

4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Siding Contractor

Siding is an important part of your home that protects your walls from water and structural damage. So, if you are having work done on it, be it repair or replacement, it’s best to leave it to the pros instead of going the DIY route. Before you hire a contractor for this endeavor, it pays to know the important questions to ask. We highlight four of them here:

1. Are you licensed and insured? As a homeowner, you will want your siding contractors to be qualified to do your siding job. Ask for proof of business license to see if they are indeed allowed to ply their trade in the area where you live. Your siding contractors must also carry adequate insurance to make sure that you are protected against any liability that may occur from an accident while the project is ongoing.

2. Does your estimate include all costs? During your consultation, make sure that the cost of labor, materials, waste removal, applicable permits and other contractor incidentals are written down. This will help keep the cost of the project from inflating too much and also avoid miscommunication. Also, make sure that you have a copy of it so you will be safe from any additional unnecessary costs.

3. Do you have a list of references? Make sure to ask for a list of references, preferably from the last five projects they did. After obtaining their contact details of each, call them to ask about their experience working with the siding experts. From there, you can determine whether or not your prospective siding contractor is the right fit for your needs.

4. How long will the siding project take to finish? Your contractor should give you an estimate of how many days your project will be completed barring any unexpected circumstances. Make sure that the pros you hire for your siding repair or replacement focuses solely on your project, which means they shouldn’t take off for a week to work on other clients.
