  • 3 Tips for Negotiating Costs With Your Siding Contractor

New siding can boost your home’s curb appeal and transform its appearance. Since siding replacement is a major remodeling project with a big impact, it’s important to know how to get top quality for your remodeling dollar. In today’s article, PJ Sullivan Exteriors, one of the top siding and roofing replacement companies in the area, explains how to negotiate costs with your siding contractor.

Research Everything About Siding

If you want to get the most out of your siding replacement project, then you will have to do your research. The entire process of a siding installation is detail-heavy and many factors can affect the cost of the project. You can talk to your friends and family about their experience with this kind of project and you can get information from the internet. Our website, in particular, has lots of relevant blog posts that can help you.

Discuss Your Budget and the Warranty

Don’t be afraid to discuss your budget with your siding contractor. You should both agree that any unprotected project expenses will be presented in writing. You should also discuss your siding warranty because it will impact the quoted cost of your project. In general, a higher price should have a longer warranty. Talk to your contractor and figure out if the warranty being offered to you is the right length for your needs.

Prepare Your Home for Siding Replacement

Many siding contractors offer to prepare your home for a siding replacement. However, this can increase the price of your project. If you want, you can do some of the work yourself to help you negotiate the price of your siding replacement project. Some of the tasks you can do include trimming trees and shrubbery near your home, cutting your grass short and clearing away all items in your yard.

We were so happy with the roofing, siding and pertego job PJ Sullivan did for us. We couldn’t have asked for a better company to do this for us. Pete was very attentive and visited our home at least 3 times a week and that was important for us.
