Like getting new windows, siding replacement can truly do a lot for your home. However, it can also be a significant investment, making it important to ensure that you get the results you’re looking for and more. To that end, you need to make sure you have all your bases covered, starting with asking your siding contractor these questions before signing a contract.
1. Can I Have a Look at Examples of Jobs You’ve Completed?
Past works and testimonials are a great way for you to gauge the level of quality that a contractor you are interested in is capable of. Many siding professionals have this information ready in their websites or in portfolios they carry during sales presentations, so it shouldn’t be difficult to acquire the information you need. If a contractor refuses to provide you with referrals, be wary.
2. Are You Insured?
Working with a reputable contractor is an easy way to make sure that your siding project will go off without a hitch. However, sometimes things just don’t happen according to plan, resulting in injuries and/or damage to property, whether you’re installing replacement windows or siding. Insurance protects you from these so make sure to ask your contractor for proof they have liability and workers’ compensation coverage.
3. What Kind of Warranty Do You Offer?
The kind of warranty you’ll be getting gives you an easy way to tell how much your contractor is committed to offering quality. The more confident they are about standing behind their work, after all, the more you can trust that you are working with the right people. Exact warranty terms will differ from contractor to contractor but you should get both product guarantees and workmanship warranties to cover material defects and installation issues.
