Siding replacement projects are essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor. That’s why hiring a contractor who can meet your needs—not to mention communicate about them on a regular basis—is essential to the success of any home improvement project.
To make sure your siding contractor is qualified for the job, it’s essential that you vet them. In addition to checking their basic qualifications (like workers’ compensation and liability insurance), you can ask them these questions:
1. How Long Have You Been in Business?
The number of years a contractor has been working in the industry should give you a good idea of their level of expertise.
Important note: You should also ask how varied the contractor’s experience has been. Aside from siding projects, what are the other projects they’ve worked on? Have they conducted gutter repairs before? What about roofing and exterior projects?
2. Where Is Your Office Located?
Hiring local siding and exterior companies has several advantages. For instance, since they’re more familiar with the local building codes and climate, they can make better recommendations. They also have extensive local networks, so if you’re ever in need of an electrician or a plumber, they can help you quickly find a qualified contractor.
Here’s a pro-tip: If you’re in urgent need of a siding contractor, you can quickly narrow down your options by focusing your search on siding and gutter installation companies in your area.
3. Do You Use Subcontractors?
The problem with using subcontractors is that it’s practically impossible to maintain oversight over the quality of their work. That’s why it’s best to hire local full-service contractors with full-time employees.
