Choosing the right siding contractor to work on your project can be tough— especially if it’s your first time calling for one. Because it’s critical to ensure they get the job done, homeowners are urged to carefully consider their qualifications. As a guide, here are questions for siding contractors you can ask.
Do You Have Formally Trained Installers?
Verifying about a prospective contractor’s training is always the first step to making sure you receive quality workmanship. This gives you the assurance that your siding project follows local building codes and is completed using the best installation practices.
How Long Have You Been in Business?
One of the many indications of a siding installation company’s reputation within the local community is its experience. To find out if they have years of extensive industry experience, be sure to ask for its business card. As innovations have emerged, you can also easily look them up on the internet like other siding and roofing replacement companies.
How Long Will It Take for the Project to Complete?
Keep in mind that your potential contractor should handle your project from start to finish. While your involvement in the process is essential, plan everything during pleasant outdoor conditions so there won’t be any delays.
Does Your Estimate Include a Breakdown of All Costs?
When asking for an estimate from roofers and siding contractors, make sure to check if it includes labor, materials, waste removal and applicable permits. Remember that upon removal of the old siding, unforeseen problems could be revealed, which may double your estimate.
