Having your siding replaced can be a pretty big task. There are a lot of things to consider, but this project begins with the most important decision you will make. Who will you pick as your York County, PA, siding company? Here a few tips to make sure your next siding job goes off without a hitch!
Know someone in your neighborhood or a family member that has recently had a siding replacement done? Word of mouth is the best advertising there is available, and it works both ways. People will willingly tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly of the experiences they have with any given contractor. Here are a few things to ask about.
- Was the job completed on time?
- Were all the contract obligations met?
- How was customer service?
- Were any issues with workmanship addressed quickly and to your satisfaction?
The last thing you want to do is settle on the first name you see. Shop around and compare prices. Also, don’t forget to ask about any warranties the siding company provides. Go beyond just looking into the siding company. Research the siding manufacturer they use for their materials as well. Reach out to a few potential candidates and ask them to provide a quote. Compare each quote and warranty package you get. Beware of low-ball quotes which are usually a good indication that you are dealing with someone who performs shoddy work.
Check reviews and get references
Don’t be afraid to ask for references. A reputable siding company will gladly give you a list of references from recent jobs they have completed. Drive by these homes and check out their work. If the homeowner happens to be out, ask them about their experience with the siding company you are exploring. Also, don’t forget Google reviews. These are a great place to see how people are reviewing the company and how the company responds to negative reviews.
Get a written quote
Always get a quote in writing. Make sure the quote includes job details, expectations, terms, and of course, price. Now is a good time to get a copy of any warranty information the company can provide on their workmanship and material used.
