Any work involving your siding should never be taken lightly, no matter how small the scale is. Installing siding not only increases the value and curb appeal of your property; it also acts as one of your primary defenders against the elements. Before signing the contract with your chosen siding contractor, you should ask these three crucial questions first.
1. Do You Have a Local Office?
This is a very simple but important question to ask. Working with a company that has a local address in your area is always a positive. While most contractors are honest and trustworthy, there are those that like to take advantage of homeowners, especially after a big storm. Working with a local company ensures that you are able to easily contact the company if any problems should arise after the installation.
2. Can I See Examples of Your Previous Work?
Testimonials and reviews are invaluable when looking for a good siding company. A reputable contractor will be more than happy to show you examples of completed work and refer you to previous clients without having to be asked. Be sure to speak to at least three previous clients, and ask them if they are happy with the services that were provided.
3. Do You Offer Any Warranties or Guarantees?
It is only reasonable to expect that the materials for your siding are covered by a good warranty. Most siding materials produced by established manufacturers offer warranties on their products that are good for at least 10 years, but this may vary depending on several factors. Good contractors will also stand behind the quality of their work by providing a workmanship guarantee.
