What are some tips for choosing a siding contractor?
Word of mouth: One of the very best ways to choose a siding contractor is to simply ask friends and family. They can share with you their experiences, and whether those experiences are negative or positive, which gives you a good baseline to work with. This way you can actually see the end product, and talk to people you trust about how everything worked, and the way in which the company they used was able to help them.
Obtain estimates: After you’ve received a few recommendations from people you trust, it’s time to start crunching the numbers. We highly suggest getting at least three estimates, if not more. This way you can compare not only the price but the experience levels of the company that you are working with. Being able to compare all of the numbers in front of you at once might make the decision easier than you even anticipated.
Insurance: When you have settled on a contractor that you intend on using, based on the estimates, and friend’s suggestions, you need to make sure that they are properly insured. A contractor should be carrying general liability and worker’s compensation insurance. You need to require proof of insurance before you sign anything with a contractor. This is protecting the contractor, but also yourself and your property.
Check about licenses: There are different laws state to state regarding whether or not siding contractors have to be licensed. Your local building inspector will be able to tell you if this is a requirement or not, and then you will be able to go from there. Nothing is more important than doing everything by the book and protecting yourself from any issues that could arise in the future.
Quality of work: While we touched on this, it’s important to find customers from this contractor and obtain references from them. You want to gauge their satisfaction with the product. Most companies will let you contact at least ten different names and phone numbers, and you’ll be able to inquire about how everything turned out in the end.
