It is inevitable. At some point, you will likely be faced with having to replace the siding on your home. You may ponder tackling the project yourself. Before rushing out to buy supplies, it’s important to realize that hanging siding can be a lot more challenging than what it may appear. There are long pieces of siding to handle. There will be ladders to climb, sometimes as high as two stories up. Factor in that there is a proper way to install siding, and all of this could lead to a DIY disaster in the making. If you want the job done right, you should choose a siding company in New Freedom, PA.
Your best choice for siding jobs is to choose a local siding contractor. One of the reasons is because of their proven track record. Ask around and see who friends and family have used for their recent siding jobs. Word of mouth is a strong indicator of how trustworthy a contractor is. Local contractors will also be well-versed in local building codes and various permitting requirements of municipalities. Additionally, they will have established relationships with local suppliers that can save you BIG.
These days finding out about contractors is a reasonably simple process. The internet is your friend! After writing down a list of potential contractors, start doing your research. The Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List are two valuable resources to gather contractors’ reviews in your area. Search each contractor’s name and see what comes up for their Google Business listing. These listings may also include reviews by past customers.
An essential part of conducting business as a contractor is to have proper licensing. Once you have begun narrowing down your list of potential contractors, ask each one to see proof of both licensing and insurance. Any legitimate contractor will gladly furnish copies for you. If you happen to find a contractor unwilling to share this information, steer clear! Please don’t become another victim on their list.
Get a warranty
Check with your potential contractors as to what their warranty coverage is. The worst thing that could happen is you award someone the job, they complete the work, and then leave never to be seen or heard from again. This is especially troublesome if you have some issues that need to be dealt with down the road. A reputable contractor will provide a warranty that covers their workmanship in addition to the siding manufacturers’ warranty.
Don’t be pressured
Whatever you do. Do not be pressured into signing anything. Take your time and choose the contractor that you think will do the best work. Weigh your options, and your research will pay off in the long run.
